There is a safer and potentially more profitable way to
conduct business along the manufacturing enterprise –
and the funny thing is it has been here all the time.
By applying API RP 754 and extending it with edge
analytics, it is possible for manufacturers to create a process safety
Digital transformation is well established in the business IT space, but it’s a different story for industrial process
control. Because reliability and safety are so critical to industries like oil and gas, these industries are more
cautious about adopting the newest technologies.
But what are the best ways to...
Securing operational technology (OT) systems for critical
infrastructure requires identifying and tracking a complete inventory
of all OT and IT endpoints. Only with a comprehensive inventory
that includes configuration data can companies protect against
unauthorized change, achieve compliance, mitigate risk...
While doing digital transformation, CISOs tend to look more at technology and try to adapt it without making the distinction between technologies that are must-have and good to have. Krishnamurthy Rajesh of ICRA says CISOs must analyze risks, update security, and change the mindset of employees.
Findings from CyberTheory's 2021 Third Quarter Review indicate that criminals are exploiting the open-source supply chain, and those exploits are proving much more difficult to identify, defend and stop in terms of complexity and depth than we've seen before, says CyberTheory's director, Steve King.
U.S. federal agencies issued a joint advisory around potential cyber threats to the nation's water facilities. They cite "ongoing malicious cyber activity - by both known and unknown actors - targeting the IT and OT technology networks, systems and devices" of U.S. water and wastewater systems.
Recent years have seen
firms in electricity generation and distribution, oil, and gas facing increasingly sophisticated
cybersecurity attacks. And the stakes in the energy sector are significantly high.
In May 2021, a cyber attack hit Colonial Pipeline1, and though the attack targeted the company’s
The world is experiencing a cybercrime pandemic, which is a direct consequence of COVID-19, according to Amit Basu, CISO and CIO at International Seaways. He offers proactive prevention measures, based on his own experience, for how organizations can stay safe and secure.
Like his peer CISOs, Amit Basu of International Seaways is concerned about complexity and the shifting landscape. But not just the threat landscape – he also is challenged by the shifting dynamics of business priorities and processes, as well as what "protection" in this new environment now entails.

What are the latest cybersecurity issues? Join four Information Security Media Group editors as they describe the top issues of the week, including the risk of cyberattacks provoking a kinetic response, as well as top healthcare CISOs' tips for handling supply chain security, resiliency and ransomware.
OT, IoT, IIoT - each has critical distinctions, and each is increasingly vital to protecting the world's critical infrastructure from crippling cyberattacks. In a panel discussion, cybersecurity leaders discuss what it takes to get the C-suite's attention to prioritize this new generation of risk.
The widely used NicheStack TCP/IP stack has 14 vulnerabilities that, if exploited, could allow for remote code execution, denial of service, information leaks, TCP spoofing or DNS cache poisoning, according to researchers at Forescout and JFrog. But patches are now available.
