Industrial Cyber Security

Key FeaturesLearn about endpoint protection such as anti-malware implementation, updating, monitoring, and sanitizing user workloads and mobile devicesFilled with practical examples to help you secure critical infrastructure systems efficientlyA step-by-step guide that will teach you the techniques and methodologies of building robust infrastructure systemsBook DescriptionWith industries expanding, cyber attacks have increased significantly. Understanding your control system’s vulnerabilities and learning techniques to defend critical infrastructure systems from cyber threats is increasingly important. With the help of real-world use cases, this book will teach you the methodologies and security measures necessary to protect critical infrastructure systems and will get you up to speed with identifying unique challenges.Industrial cybersecurity begins by introducing Industrial Control System (ICS) technology, including ICS architectures, communication media, and protocols. This is followed by a presentation on ICS (in) security. After presenting an ICS-related attack scenario, securing of the ICS is discussed, including topics such as network segmentation, defense-in-depth strategies, and protective solutions. Along with practical examples for protecting industrial control systems, this book details security assessments, risk management, and security program development. It also covers essential cybersecurity aspects, such as threat detection and access management. Topics related to endpoint hardening such as monitoring, updating, and anti-malware implementations are also discussed.What you will learnUnderstand industrial cybersecurity, its control systems and operationsDesign security-oriented architectures, network segmentation, and security support servicesConfigure event monitoring systems, anti-malware applications, and endpoint securityGain knowledge of ICS risks, threat detection, and access managementLearn about patch management and life cycle managementSecure your industrial control systems from design through retirementAbout the AuthorPascal Ackerman is a seasoned industrial security professional with a degree in electrical engineering and over 15 years of experience in designing, troubleshooting, and securing large-scale industrial control systems and the various types of network technologies they utilize. After more than a decade of hands-on, in-the-field experience, he joined Rockwell Automation in 2015 and is currently employed as Senior Consultant of Industrial Cybersecurity with the Network and Security Services Group.
