The Cybersecurity Challenges in Critical Infrastructure

Almost 40% of industrial control systems (ICS) and critical infrastructure systems faced a cyber attack at some point in the second half of the last year.

Some of the reasons critical infrastructure systems are particularly vulnerable to attacks are:

  • The replacement of traditional controllers of control systems with operating systems and micro processing devices
  • Adoption of inter-networking technologies
  • Use of commercial OS (COTS), which have open designs and standards
