SafeBreach's RSA Roundtable on Securing the Nation's Critical Infrastructure: Three Key Takeaways

If you’ve met me, you know I’m pretty direct, so I’m going to preface this whole post by saying: yup, this is being written by a marketer. As SafeBreach’s CMO, I know that going to RSA means being crushed by the immense force of vendors trying to stand out and in some cases using gimmicks. We’re certainly a part of that: did anyone get their tarot read at our booth this year?

Cyber Warfare and Government Attitudes To Cybersecurity

The cybersecurity landscape has changed almost beyond recognition. Cyber attacks, have grown into an inescapable facet of our daily lives. Everyone, from the world's most powerful people to general consumers, live under the spectre of cyberattacks. Cyberattacks also creep into the military sphere, with the threat of all-out cyber warfare looming large over conflicts across the globe.

Industrial control systems security with Elastic Security and Zeek

Industrial control systems (ICS) have historically been isolated and less interconnected. Isolation was one of the things that kept these systems more secure behind air gaps, at the cost of lost coordination and collaboration. This is rapidly changing with the rise of Industry 4.0 with increased interconnectivity and integration of smart technologies like Industrial IoT (IIoT) and cloud computing in modern industrial processes.


Electrical Grid Security: NERC CIP, Cyber Threats and Key Challenges

Electrical grid security has been getting a lot of attention recently. It started fairly quietly, and then when it was a featured story on a news program, it rose to the top of the collective consciousness. However, the news stories that followed were focused entirely on the physical vulnerabilities of the US power grids. Few, if any stories covered the cybersecurity angle of securing the grids.


Cybersecurity in the Energy Sector: Risks and Mitigation Strategies

The demand for cybersecurity in the energy sector is often understated. There is a misconception that very little IT is involved, and much of it does not impact operations. But 97% of surveyed ICS security professionals in the energy, oil, and gas sector believe cybersecurity is a growing concern. No industry has been untouched by digital transformation.

Protecting Your OT Network: The Power of Protocol Isolation

The demand for technology that can support secure user access, both remote and onsite, has expanded beyond IT environments to include the operational technology (OT) and industrial control systems (ICS) that enable organizations in a variety of critical infrastructure (CI) sectors to function. However, the priorities of IT environments (i.e., the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data).


FBI: 870 Critical Infrastructure Organizations Were the Victim of Ransomware in 2022

The FBI’s newly-released report shows just how ransomware continues to plague critical infrastructure sectors, despite the U.S. government’s recent efforts to stop these attacks. You’ll probably recall the news about ransomware attacking the Colonial Pipeline and other U.S. critical infrastructure (CI) to the point that the government was stepping up their efforts to stop these attacks and even conducting congressional hearings on what to do about the problem.
