"The Security of Industrial Control Systems and its Impact on the Wider Organisation"

Discover how to detect and prevent privileged user threats to manufacturing systems.

As with much else in modern business, industrial control systems and operational technology are being impacted by digital change and the transformation of the organisation.

With the onset of digital transformation, those ICS systems are coming in from the cold as organisations seek to connect those parts of the organisation formerly semi-detached from the main IT architecture.

The motives for this make sense: maximise efficiencies, reduce wastage, analyse data flows and operations. It is also hoped to increase productivity in factories, offices, retail units or any environment that relies on ICS.

But as ICS become connected it opens up new risks that had previously not been a consideration including the malware that targets IT infrastructure, criminal hackers, or nation-state actors looking to disable industrial control systems to damage critical infrastructure.

This whitepaper discusses these issues and how they will impact on businesses and organisations in the digital future.
