If you aren’t using firewalls right now,
get up and go get some!”
Last month at the Schneider Electric TEC user conference, our Industrial Control System (ICS) expert, Mike Dugent, presented a session entitled: ICS Cybersecurity, Lessons from the Field. In it, he told a crowd of ICS engineers and executives, what they already knew; that they must move up the cybersecurity maturity curve to defeat the advanced persistent threats (APT) targeting their organizations’ critical infrastructure assets. The audience was a who’s-who of leading oil and gas companies, power producers, pipeline operators and others, and they nodded as Mike recognized the challenge these companies face to “catch up” with other industries to mature their cybersecurity posture.
