Driven by both top-down and bottom-up forces, industrial cybersecurity has become an urgent initiative in many different industries. On one hand, the growing number of cybersecurity incidents and cyberattacks on critical public infrastructure, such as power substations, oil and gas pipelines, and water treatment plants, has prompted governments around the world to implement new laws and regulations that demand stronger industrial network security. On the other hand, private companies and smart factories are also realizing that they are no longer immune to cyberattacks and are also taking matters into their own hands to address potential cybersecurity risks on their networks. Indeed, industrial cybersecurity has become everyone’s responsibility and demands a new way of thinking.
With cyberattacks targeting more and more industrial networks, it is crucial to identify and mitigate system vulnerabilities before these weaknesses are exploited by those who intend to do harm. There are two directions you can take to enhance network security. One is to ensure that your industrial networks have a secure foundation–secure network infrastructure, which allows authorized traffic to flow to the correct places. Alternatively, you can identify critical assets and give them layered protection such as an industrial IPS or whitelisting control.
