Emerging Best Practice for ICS Perimeter Cyber Security

  • Michael Piccalo, Director of Industrial Security
  • Monday, February 23rd, 12:30pm - 1:45pm

Malware continues to evolve becoming more powerful and more elusive, putting the safety and reliability of our critical infrastructure increasingly more at risk. Cyber security experts increasingly assert that IT firewall / perimeter defenses are porous, and that other measures must be deployed to protect IT networks.

This advice is a poor fit for control system networks. The nature of control system networks is that they will always be softer targets than IT networks. Firewalls and other software-based security solutions, even when deployed in layers, have been compromised time and again.

In this session, we will explore some of the reasons why firewalls and other IT technologies are no longer effective against modern threats and we explore how unidirectional security gateway technology, a global emerging best practice that utilizes hardware to enforce security, can help mitigate modern threats while keeping the real-time data feed available to the business users that rely on this information.
