David Greenfield, editor of Automation World,in his recent article Industrial Cybersecurity Explosion, emphasizes that manufacturers must stop ignoring or downplaying the cyber risk. He references attacks like Wannacry, Notpetya, and zeros in on “Brutal Kangaroo” – an attack specifically designed for air gapped systems. Industrial automation reliability and safety safeguarded though better monitoring and early detection of cyber risks unfortunately can create a false sense of security. While we agree that improved vigilance is essential, Bedrock Automation was founded on the premise that the best cyber defense is built in versus bolted on. Bedrock Cybershield is the most effective ICS technology available to provide layered and embedded defenses against cyberattacks. This approach uses a suite of technologies in the product design and supply chain to enable authentication of hardware,software, applications and users, from the IIoT to secure OPC-UA SCADA systems.
