Industrial Automation Security

IAS was established for companies that are involved in industrial- based process automation and control. Due to the constant evolution of control processes and automation systems, as well as their underlying platforms on which they operate, each day new possibilities are discovered that could pose serious security risks to those systems. IAS aims to inform them about the necessity to secure their systems, and to provide them with best practices and practical and actionable guidelines. The possibilities offered to manage the systems easier and better, by evolving into modern capabilities ,by equipping them with new functionalities or by having multiple systems interconnect and work together, poses new challenges in terms of security. Legacy systems , or underlying IT systems already no longer be maintained for a long period of time can be a major threat . Only fully insulated systems can probably continue to exist , but they also will be subjected to external administration or changes eventually. The further automation within the sector (smart factories, internet of things, industrial internet) has lead to an increase of targeted attacks on industrial systems. For the proper functioning of business it is important to evaluate the potential risks, assess them, and take proper counter measures.
