Recent developments in ICS focused malware and documented attacked against ICS such as the Ukranian Power Grid incident show that successful attacks against ICS are growing in sophistication, and are often using complex multi-faceted techniques to manipulate physical processes. The traditional IT safeguards are shown to be insufficient in many cases. In most cases, the least cost and most effective solutions are to use engineered safeguards that are fundamentally resistant to cyber attack. This presentation focuses on the concept of cyber-physical integrity, as an extension to mechanical integrity, and how to understand how to model and prevent cyber failure of an ICS through blending engineered layers of protection with IT security solutions.
