Industrial Control Systems (ICS) are designed to provide high availability to support 24/7 production systems but often have very little or no security protection mechanisms to deter potential cyber threats. In many cases, the implementation of multiple project upgrades, expansions, and inter-changing multiple system engineers has left numerous vulnerabilities open for assailants.
The ability to proactively protect a production system from potential threats requires a thorough understanding of the system vulnerabilities to clearly define the level of associated risk to develop an effective security plan.
The ICS security management plan encompasses multiple layers of protection to ensure production systems remain safe and available. This comprehensive assessment solution includes both internal and external vulnerabilities and provides a roadmap to meet the overall system lifecycle objectives.
