The security of industrial control systems (ICS) like SCADA servers, engineering workstations, Programmable Logic Controller (PLCs) or Human-Machine Interfaces (HMIs), and industry IoT solutions have been hitting the headlines lately. High-profile attacks against critical infrastructure have caused loss of critical services (electricity, water supply, air traffic control…) and environmental damage, and could potentially even lead to loss of life.
Cyber-attacks on industrial systems
ICS systems have traditionally relied on isolation and obscurity to mitigate the risk of digital attacks. With increasing connectivity between classic IT and operational technology (OT) worlds, such isolation gradually weakened considerably, and due to standardization and vulnerability research, obscurity and isolation are no longer a viable defense.
This leaves OT/ICS systems increasingly open to risk and exposes critical services to internal and external actors. With complexity and dynamics rising, things seem to be only getting worse for the defenders.
NIL provides a set of security solutions and services that smartly focuses on industrial defense. Our threat detection and response mechanisms minimize the risks in case of a cyber-attack and enable quick mitigation without disruption to critical industrial operations and processes.
