Industrial Control Systems Security is the prevention of intentional or unintentional interference with the proper operation of industrial automation and control systems. These control systems manage essential services including electricity, petroleum production, water, transportation, manufacturing, and communications. They rely on computers, networks, operating systems, applications, and programmable logic controllers, each of which could contain security vulnerabilities. The 2010 discovery of the Stuxnet worm demonstrated the vulnerability of these systems to cyber incidents. Many government authorities have now passed cyber-security regulations requiring enhanced protection for control systems operating critical infrastructure.
Security within an Industrial Control environment is quite different to IT Security and needs to be addressed within it’s own context. DTS specialize in Industrial Control Systems Security and are partnering with market leaders in their field to provide the most comprehensive ICS security solution offering based on the ISA99 / IEC-62443 standard. Working very closely with the vendors, DTS is able to translate the most complex of ICS security solutions into something that is practical, intuitive and complete.
