Protect industrial facilities against cyber attacks

Protect production facilities and industrial control systems (ICS)


Merging of IT and OT (operational technology) makes you vulnerable

Production IT is no longer isolated from internal IT. Production systems are increasingly controlled and monitored from outside: for example, when technicians access production systems via remote maintenance access or the company management wants daily reports from production. The "smart factory" is networked, produces and processes data and is controlled via various end devices.

This is made possible by the merger of IT and OT with the risk that these networks can now also be attacked from "outside". Another challenge: traditional production systems have lifetimes of 7 to 10 years and sometimes use outdated operating systems for which security updates are no longer provided or the installation of security updates impairs the production process.


Sector-specific safety standards

In addition to other measures, the BSI recommends the following precautions for ICS systems to protect against cyberattacks:

Rules should be established for the use of removable storage media and mobile devices. The use of removable storage media in ICS environments should be restricted. Mobile data carriers should be fully encrypted.

Operating personnel should be regularly informed and sensitised to relevant security threats in the OT area. Operational and security-relevant events must be identified promptly.
