The SANS Institute recently surveyed hundreds of ICS practitioners and cybersecurity stakeholders on the topic of industrial cybersecurity. The results provide a valuable source of information for organizations seeking to understand the state of ICS security or to benchmark their organization against others.
Amongst the findings are a ranking of top threat vectors. Read on to learn what global leaders in critical infrastructure are most concerned about, and how Nozomi Networks’ SCADAguardian defends and mitigates against the top threats.

Industroyer / CrashOverride have been at the top of the industrial security news lately. And rightly so. Not since Stuxnet has the world seen an advanced malware that was designed and deployed to disrupt physical infrastructure, notably power grids. Industroyer is believed to have been used in attacks on Ukraine that took place in on December 17, 2016 that shut down electrical power to a large area of its capital city, Kiev.
Industroyer is an advanced threat of high concern. Nozomi Network’s experts and researchers have dissected how it works to formulate specific steps to protect, detect, and defend against it. and one that uses normal protocol commands to build its attack. Fortunately, advanced ICS intrusion detection is available that would both identify the malware’s presence and help protect against its impacts.
