The security of industrial control systems (ICS) and industry IoT solutions has never been more important.
High-profile attacks against critical infrastructure could result in a loss of critical services, environmental damage, and even loss of life. And because these digital systems interact with the physical world, the risks cross the digital barrier into reality.
ICS systems have traditionally relied on isolation and obscurity to mitigate the risk of digital attacks. But with increasing connectivity between classic IT and operational technology (OT), this isolation is gradually disappearing. In addition, obscurity is no longer a viable defense due to standardization and vulnerability research.
