VISION OF INDUSTRIAL SECURITY
For more than two decades, industrial systems have incorporated information technologies, initiating a process of convergence between corporate and production networks. This has been happening since the appearance of Windows 3.11, Windows NT and the incorporation of Ethernet TCP / IP in industrial communications, the creation of OPC (OLE for Process Control), which are clear examples of a reality that changed the paradigm of the islands of information forever.
Since the emergence of Stuxnet, the interest and number of threats with the capacity to compromise industrial systems have grown exponentially. During the last decade, companies dedicated to Information Security (IT) have turned to Operational Security (OT) in the search to expand their businesses by offering a wide variety of services and providing a wide variety of products and different tools that would even be difficult to list them all.
However, the information security approach for industrial plants is insufficient and misguided creating a false expectation of security. While information security has as a priority the protection of cyber components from the growing threats originated by all different actors (Entities, Hackers, Terrorist Organizations, Criminals, etc.) industrial cybersecurity has as a priority to protect the recipients of risks (people, environment, machines, community, etc.) from vulnerable components. Additionally, the tolerance to cyber risks in the field of production (OT) is much lower than that accepted in information technology (IT).
After many years of experience collaborating in the development and implementation of the ISA/IEC-62443 series of standards in industrial environments, and observing that the tools produced by information security (IT) experts are far from solving the problem of cybersecurity in the field of operations and production (OT), we decided to create a unique system – from a blank sheet of paper – that meets all the requirements of the ISA/IEC-62443 series of standards and other popular regulations. We created Zones & Conduits Manager System (ZCM).
