Trend Micro -
In this two-part series, we look into various cybersecurity threats that affected industrial control systems endpoints. We also discuss several insights and recommendations to mitigate such threats.
The ever-changing technological landscape has made it possible for the business process on the IT side of an enterprise to be interconnected with the physical process on the OT side. While this advancement has improved visibility, speed, and efficiency, it has exposed industrial control systems (ICSs) to threats affecting IT networks for years.
Our expert team extensively looked into reported specific malware families in ICS endpoints to validate ICS security and establish a global baseline for examining threats that put these systems at risk. By doing so, this can help identify the choice of malware and unveil the attackers’ motivation, skill levels as well as gather insights about the affected network’s ecosystem and cybersecurity hygiene.
An overview of the IT/OT network and ICS endpoints
IT/OT network pertains to the convergence of the IT and
