Modern control systems are increasingly complex, digital and connected. Where in the past these were isolated from other networks, today's operators typically require data to be transferred between industrial and external networks. This has created the potential for malware and hackers to gain access to and disrupt real time control systems and dependent infrastructure. This book analyses the different types of control systems and their associated threats, and the methods of countering cyber intrusions.

As industrial control systems (ICS), including SCADA, DCS, and other process control networks, become Internet-facing, they expose crucial services to attack. Threats like Duqu, a sophisticated worm found in the wild that appeared to share portions of its code with the Stuxnet worm, emerge with increasing frequency. Explaining how to develop and implement an effective cybersecurity program for ICS, Cybersecurity for Industrial Control Systems: SCADA, DCS, PLC, HMI, and SIS provides you with the tools to ensure network security without sacrificing the efficiency and functionality of ICS. Highlighting the key issues that need to be addressed, the book begins with a thorough introduction to ICS. It discusses business, cost, competitive, and regulatory drivers and the conflicting priorities of convergence. Next, it explains why security requirements differ from IT to ICS. It differentiates when standard IT security solutions can be used and where SCADA-specific practices are required. The book examines the plethora of potential threats to ICS, including hi-jacking malware, botnets, spam engines, and porn dialers. It outlines the range of vulnerabilities inherent in the ICS quest for efficiency and functionality that necessitates risk behavior such as remote access and control of critical equipment. Reviewing risk assessment techniques and the evolving risk assessment process, the text concludes by examining what is on the horizon for ICS security, including IPv6, ICSv6 test lab designs, and IPv6 and ICS sensors.

Many people think of the Smart Grid as a power distribution group built on advanced smart metering—but that’s just one aspect of a much larger and more complex system. The "Smart Grid" requires new technologies throughout energy generation, transmission and distribution, and even the homes and businesses being served by the grid. This also represents new information paths between these new systems and services, all of which represents risk, requiring a more thorough approach to where and how cyber security controls are implemented. This insight provides a detailed architecture of the entire Smart Grid, with recommended cyber security measures for everything from the supply chain to the consumer. Discover the potential of the Smart Grid Learn in depth about its systems See its vulnerabilities and how best to protect it

Learn the threats and vulnerabilities of critical infrastructure to cybersecurity attack. Definitions are provided for cybersecurity technical terminology and hacker jargon related to automated control systems common to buildings, utilities, and industry. Buildings today are automated because the systems are complicated and so we depend on the building controls system (BCS) to operate the equipment. We also depend on a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) to keep a record of what was repaired and to schedule required maintenance. SCADA, BCS, and CMMS all can be hacked. The Cybersecurity Lexicon puts cyber jargon related to building controls all in one place. The book is a handy desk reference for professionals interested in preventing cyber-physical attacks against their facilities in the real world. Discussion of attacks on automated control systems is clouded by a lack of standard definitions and a general misunderstanding about how bad actors can actually employ cyber technology as a weapon in the real world. This book covers: Concepts related to cyber-physical attacks and building hacks are listed alphabetically with text easily searchable by key phrase Definitions are providesd for technical terms related to equipment controls common to industry, utilities, and buildings—much of the terminology also applies to cybersecurity in general What You’ll learn Get a simple explanation of cybersecurity attack concepts Quickly assess the threat of the most common types of cybersecurity attacks to your facilities in real time Find the definition of facilities, engineering, and cybersecurity acronyms Who This Book Is For Architects, engineers, building managers, students, researchers, and consultants interested in cybersecurity attacks against facilities in the real world.
