This entry was posted by on .

Attacks and Disasters Happen Across all Verticals, and They Often Cross IT, OT, and Physical Infrastructure. So How Does it Make Sense to Have a Security Strategy that Only Protects IT?

Below are a few examples of attacks and disasters that happened across IT, Operational Technology (OT), and Physical Assets across many different verticals. Most of these are recent, but one of them was 30-years ago and most people still remember it.

Electrical Substation

The attack began just before 1 am on April 16 last year, when someone slipped into an underground vault not far from a busy freeway and cut telephone cables not far from San Jose, CA. Within 1/2 hour, snipers opened fire on an outlying electrical substation. Shooting for 19 minutes, they surgically knocked out 17 giant transformers that funnel power to a nearby metropolis. A minute before police arrived, the shooters disappeared into the night. Power disruption was avoided by rerouting power from other stations, but the station remained closed for 27 days for repairs. Other Utilities Substations that have experienced trouble are: Melbourne, Australia, Scarborough, Ontario and Warren, Minnesota to name a few. read more

One of the most common mistakes in the view of integrating physical and IT security is not recognizing how a company’s charter impacts security in the company.

For example, take the charter of a software company.

What is the charter of a Software Development Company?

In a software development company programmers develop software that the company sells. This is the core function of the organization, and aligns with the company charter. The software development group will have a variety of tools used in software development, such as development interfaces, test and development servers, and other tools to help build products for the company. read more
