Ensuring the security of industrial control systems (ICS) can be a daunting and complex task, requiring expertise and experience in several areas from a variety of contributors. The rapid pace of improvements to both technology and practice adds to the challenge. Finally, the amount and complexity of information, guidance and advice that is available can easily become overwhelming. Rather than focusing on...

Big-time security threats and breaches, like the recent Target data breach involving confidential consumer information, remind us of how vulnerable our interconnectivity makes us. And yet, the advantages of the technological advances that we enjoy are so many that there is no turning back. In his keynote presentation at the recent ARC Industry Forum (February 2014; Orlando, Fla.; www.arc.com), ARC Advisory...

Security of SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) and other industrial control systems (ICSs) is a complex subject, and one that has received much attention in recent years. While modern industrial control systems use many of the same computers, operating systems and networking components as conventional business networks, the two kinds of networks are managed very differently. As a result, what...

Control and automation in the chemical process industries (CPI) have evolved by leaps and bounds over the past century, bringing along a host of benefits. As a result, today’s state-of-the-art facilities are more in line with business objectives, less prone to unplanned shutdowns and better able to manage process safety. However, these improvements come hand-in-hand with a relatively new challenge...

June 1, 2011
There was a time, not long ago, when most groups responsible for industrial control systems (ICS) in the chemical process industries (CPI) were not much worried about security. They had their firewalls in place and their remote access servers, and overall that worked for them. Rarely, a virus would sneak in and usually do little damage. The affected computers would need to be shut down and cleaned out, but...

May 19, 2011
Question:  What standard, guideline or regulation should I use to create a cybersecurity program, or should I wait until a standard is finalized? Answer:  Waiting until a cybersecurity standard is explicitly selected, accepted and enforced is a mistake for two very good reasons.  First, a security program is much more social and cultural than technical. One thing we’ve learned from the...

As potential threats continue to make headline news around the world, it is clear that the need for security measures is an ongoing process, and that this process requires vigilance. The chemical process industries (CPI) are considered part of the critical infrastructure in the U.S., and as such are regulated by the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS; Washington, D.C.; www.dhs.gov) under the Chemical...

Security at many U.S. chemical facilities is currently regulated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS; Washington, D.C.; www.dhs.gov) under the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standard (CFATS). This rule, however, is about to expire this month, October 2009. All expectations are that CFATS will be extended for a year, while proposed modifications to the standard continue to be debated in the...
