Electric charging stations are increasingly used in urban furniture in cities. Electric cars and their need to be charged are a reality. Because of this, there is an increase in supply points that depend on specific protocols and communications for these stations.
Perhaps, given the many important cybersecurity leaks and intrusions in recent years involving everything from social media accounts to critical infrastructure and classified military secrets, the attention paid to the Aurora vulnerability has not been proportional to its seriousness and systems affected. This is because it affects almost every electrical system in the world, and potentially any rotating equipment, whether it generates energy or is essential for an industrial or commercial installation. If the threat is so widespread, why isn’t the industry more worried and actively looking for solutions? From this article various possible reasons for this are given.
Trips across the ocean have changed over the years with the arrival of the industrial revolution and information technology, among other things, making technology its best ally, both to automate their navigation and to control their location from land-based stations. However, this total dependence on technology brings with it important security issues that need to be addressed with the importance they deserve.
After having analysed the "why" behind the cybersecurity capacities evaluation model in the first entry dedicated to the C4V model and after having explained how to carry out an appropriate management of risks in the value chain in the second edition, this third edition is dedicated to explaining how to carry out an evaluation of ourselves.
Industry 4.0 integrates a large amount of devices used to provide the industrial processes with more intelligence. Among said devices we can find many different types of equipment such as drones or robots that perform specific tasks or tasks requiring precision. The use of these devices –quite well known nowadays– has certain implications for the security of control systems.
Remote accesses to control devices from networks outside the company are a major problem but, what about direct accesses made thanks to the accessibility of the device? This article explains the concept of hardware hacking and the hazards for the industry.
Alarm bells ringing again –a new malware threats industrial networks. After the attack suffered in Ukraine with BlackEnergy and the failures occurred at the beginning of the year, other new malware is added to the list of attackers of industrial control systems started by Stuxnet
