Unternehmen in Sektoren wie Energie- und Wasserversorgung, Ernährung oder Transport haben eine besondere Bedeutung für das Gemeinwesen und müssen daher in besondere Weise geschützt werden. Das gilt verstärkt für die IT dieser Kritischen Infrastrukturen (KRITIS). Dieses Buch bietet eine Einführung in neue, hybride Testumgebungen für IT-Sicherheitsanalysen mit einer detaillierten Beschreibung der Vorgehensweisen. Anders als virtuelle Testumgebungen, die Industrieanlagen simulieren, oder Echtsysteme ist eine hybride Testumgebung eine Kombination aus günstigen computerbasierten Anlagenkomponenten und realen Komponenten. Das erlaubt einerseits eine hohe Flexibilität und andererseits große Realitätsnähe – und das bei niedrigen Kosten. Daher sind hybride Testumgebungen insbesondere für kleine und mittelgroße Unternehmen geeignet.Das Buch führt zunächst in die besonderen Sicherheitsanforderungen für Kritische Infrastrukturen und in typische IT-Architekturen von Industrieanlagen ein. Darauf aufbauend werden die unterschiedlichen Arten von Testumgebungen für Sicherheitsanalysen vorgestellt und eingeordnet. Der Autor erörtert Methoden und Vorgehensweisen für die Modellierung und Implementierung hybrider Testumgebungen am Beispiel der Wasserversorgung. Diese erleichtern effiziente Sicherheitsanalysen per Penetrationstest in Form von Communication-Channel-Attacken über das Internet beziehungsweise über das Netzwerk. Mit den beschriebenen Vorgehensweisen knüpft der Autor an die vom Bundesamtes für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik (BSI) entwickelte IT-Grundschutz-Methodik an. Das Buch richtet sich an IT-Sicherheitsexperten, Sicherheitsbeauftragte sowie Berater und Wissenschaftler, die auf den Gebieten Industrie 4.0, Sicherheit von Industrieanlagen, Sicherheit für KMU und Kritische Infrastrukturen arbeiten.

As industrial control systems (ICS), including SCADA, DCS, and other process control networks, become Internet-facing, they expose crucial services to attack. Threats like Duqu, a sophisticated worm found in the wild that appeared to share portions of its code with the Stuxnet worm, emerge with increasing frequency. Explaining how to develop and implement an effective cybersecurity program for ICS, Cybersecurity for Industrial Control Systems: SCADA, DCS, PLC, HMI, and SIS provides you with the tools to ensure network security without sacrificing the efficiency and functionality of ICS. Highlighting the key issues that need to be addressed, the book begins with a thorough introduction to ICS. It discusses business, cost, competitive, and regulatory drivers and the conflicting priorities of convergence. Next, it explains why security requirements differ from IT to ICS. It differentiates when standard IT security solutions can be used and where SCADA-specific practices are required. The book examines the plethora of potential threats to ICS, including hi-jacking malware, botnets, spam engines, and porn dialers. It outlines the range of vulnerabilities inherent in the ICS quest for efficiency and functionality that necessitates risk behavior such as remote access and control of critical equipment. Reviewing risk assessment techniques and the evolving risk assessment process, the text concludes by examining what is on the horizon for ICS security, including IPv6, ICSv6 test lab designs, and IPv6 and ICS sensors.

"...excellent for use as a text in information assurance orcyber-security courses...I strongly advocate thatprofessors...examine this book with the intention of using it intheir programs." (Computing Reviews.com, March 22, 2007) "The book is written as a student textbook, but it should beequally valuable for current practitioners...this book is a veryworthwhile investment." (Homeland Security Watch, August 17,2006) While the emphasis is on the development of policies that lead tosuccessful prevention of terrorist attacks on the nation’sinfrastructure, this book is the first scientific study of criticalinfrastructures and their protection. The book models thenation’s most valuable physical assets and infrastructuresectors as networks of nodes and links. It then analyzes thenetwork to identify vulnerabilities and risks in the sectorcombining network science, complexity theory, modeling andsimulation, and risk analysis. The most critical components become the focus of deeper analysisand protection. This approach reduces the complex problem ofprotecting water supplies, energy pipelines, telecommunicationstations, Internet and Web networks, and power grids to a muchsimpler problem of protecting a few critical nodes. The new editionincorporates a broader selection of ideas and sectors and moves themathematical topics into several appendices.

In jungster Zeit hat sich die Unternehmensfuhrung verstarkt den so genannten "weichen Faktoren" zugewandt. Hierzu zahlt neben den Human-Ressourcen vor allem die Organisationsstruktur. Fur viele Unternehmen ist dieser "weiche Faktor" aber langst zu einer harten Wahrheit geworden. Ob Fusion, Akquisition, Privatisierung, Nachfolge, Sanierung oder Corporate Governance ? stets stehen organisatorische Probleme im Zentrum des Geschehens. Und es ist schon lange kein Geheimnis mehr, dass strategische Neuausrichtungen, Marktorientierung, Flexibilitat, Innovationsvermogen oder Schlagkraft des Unternehmens z. T. vollig neue Organisationslosungen verlangen. Die Anforderungen an eine moderne Organisationsstruktur sind mittlerweile derart vielfaltig und z. T. widerspruchlich geworden, dass man ihnen nur noch mit einem hoch entwickelten "organisatorischen Navigationssystem" zu entsprechen vermag. Einen Einblick in dieses Navigationssystem und die neue Managementrolle der Organisation soll der vorliegende Band bieten. Er will das stark gewachsene Problemlosungspotential des Instrumentes Organisation sowohl ausbreiten als auch zugleich durch strenge Systematik beherrschbar machen.

A generation ago, "cyberspace" was just a term from science fiction, used to describe the nascent network of computers linking a few university labs. Today, our entire modern way of life, from communication to commerce to conflict, fundamentally depends on the Internet. And the cybersecurity issues that result challenge literally everyone: politicians wrestling with everything from cybercrime to online freedom; generals protecting the nation from new forms of attack, while planning new cyberwars; business executives defending firms from once unimaginable threats, and looking to make money off of them; lawyers and ethicists building new frameworks for right and wrong. Most of all, cybersecurity issues affect us as individuals. We face new questions in everything from our rights and responsibilities as citizens of both the online and real world to simply how to protect ourselves and our families from a new type of danger. And yet, there is perhaps no issue that has grown so important, so quickly, and that touches so many, that remains so poorly understood. In Cybersecurity and CyberWar: What Everyone Needs to Know®, New York Times best-selling author P. W. Singer and noted cyber expert Allan Friedman team up to provide the kind of easy-to-read, yet deeply informative resource book that has been missing on this crucial issue of 21st century life. Written in a lively, accessible style, filled with engaging stories and illustrative anecdotes, the book is structured around the key question areas of cyberspace and its security: how it all works, why it all matters, and what can we do? Along the way, they take readers on a tour of the important (and entertaining) issues and characters of cybersecurity, from the "Anonymous" hacker group and the Stuxnet computer virus to the new cyber units of the Chinese and U.S. militaries. Cybersecurity and CyberWar: What Everyone Needs to Know® is the definitive account on the subject for us all, which comes not a moment too soon.
