Cybersecurity for Industrial Control Systems – Tyson Macaulay

Cybersecurity for Industrial Control Systems: SCADA, DCS, PLC, HMI, and SIS.

This book is either ambitious, brave, or reckless approaching a topic as rapidly evolving as industrial control system (ICS) security. From the advent of ICS-targeted malicious software such as Stuxnet to the advanced persistent threats posed by organized crime and state-sponsored entities, ICS is in the crosshairs and practices and controls considered safe today may be obsolete tomorrow. Possibly more so than in more traditional IT security, because of the differences inherent in ICS.

We are taking a chance by addressing highly technical topic—the security of industrial automation and process control, also known as ICS security—from both technical and management perspectives, and at times from a more philosophical perspective. The reason for this approach is that a substantial amount of ad hoc and anecdotal technical material and analysis already exist, and this material would benefit from a broader treatment that includes business-level topics such as business case development and compliance and, ultimately, more effective enterprise risk management.

On the face of it, securing communications and operations in industrial automation and process control offers unique challenges in that not only do we deal with the traditional data and communications security requirements found on any given IT network, but we also must deal with the reality of the physics of a process in which motion is controlled and manipulated through data-dependent systems and computers—physical changes that can impact a system in myriad ways. These include costly production stoppages, maintenance failures and repairs, and even hazardous releases and dangerous failures.

In some cases, the published standards and recognized and generally accepted approaches for ICS security and traditional IT security can appear so similar as to be superfluous; however, they are developed to serve substantially different objectives. It is these few substantially different objectives that inspire this book.
