Industrial control system (ICS) security is defined as the process of providing cyber security to all industrial control system (ICS) assets governing any enterprise that operates with operational technology (OT) & information technology (IT). The assets are protected through a suite of software that identifies, detects, responds to, and mitigates threats in the industrial environment.
Typical Industrial Control Systems (ICS), including Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, Distributed Control Systems (DCS), and other control system configurations such as Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), come with unique performance, reliability, and safety requirements. As OT systems integrate with IT to increase operational efficiency and reduce the total cost of ownership, they are also providing new attack vectors, as they are now more integrated into the internet-connected components of the enterprise IT environment.
