Industrial control systems (ICS) have become increasingly network connected over the years, driven by the need for rapid information on production and shipping. This cuts costs for equipment and manpower, but there are risks attached to these business advantages. Additionally, some ICS systems are connected to enterprise IT systems, making it possible for malware to jump from the IT network to the ICS.
In this episode of the InSecurity Podcast, host Shaun Walsh is joined by special guest Chris Blask (@chrisblask) as they discuss industrial control systems and how securing them is different from securing traditional IT systems.
