Industrial Cybersecurity Controls As per IEC62443

Types of Authorization and Authentication for industrial control system based on 62443 guidelines.

Safeguarding critical infrastructures like Power plants, Oil & Gas industry, Wind power, Manufacturing, Food processing etc., all are now integrated with It technologies and some of them are connected to the internet as well. This convergence of IT and OT is increasing changes of being exposed or increased attack surface. Hence cybersecurity requirement for OT/ICS industry is prime concern now. Most of the industries are now implementing these measures and mitigating risks.

Requirements

Safeguarding critical infrastructures like Power plants, Oil & Gas industry, Wind power, Manufacturing, Food processing etc., all are now integrated with It technologies and some of them are connected to the internet as well. This convergence of IT and OT is increasing changes of being exposed or increased attack surface. Hence cybersecurity requirement for OT/ICS industry is prime concern now. Most of the industries are now implementing these measures and mitigating risks.

ICS systems comprises of SCADA, DCS, PLC and many more proprietary systems and protocols, designing a cybersecurity solution for these system needs understanding of both OT related applications and IT related controls which can fit into these environments.

In this course we will learn about authorization and authentication controls which can be implemented in the ICS environment. What are the controls and how that can be implemented, what could be probable weakness and what does industry assessment says about those prescribed cybersecurity controls.

At the end of course learner will have understanding of the type of cybersecurity controls for authentication and authorization in the Industrial environment, like dual factor authentications, smart cards etc. These are based on guidelines hence in the upcoming courses learner will understand the required cybersecurity controls for the critical infrastructure.
