Secure Industrial Control Systems With Configuration Control
Industrial control systems (ICS), sometimes referred to as operational technology (OT), are the workhorses for manufacturing and critical infrastructure. They control processes for continuous production (for example: electricity) and unit production (for example: automobiles). Industrial control systems have been around for more than 50 years, but within that period of time, the operating paradigm has changed, which highlights the need for OT-based cybersecurity.
In this whitepaper, we'll examine:
- The evolving OT environment
- Types of security threats
- Configuration control and how it secures ICS
