The availability and security of many services we rely upon—including water treatment, electricity, healthcare, transportation, and financial transactions—are routinely put at risk by cyber threats. The Handbook of SCADA/Control Systems Security is a fundamental outline of security concepts, methodologies, and relevant information pertaining to the supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems and technology that quietly operate in the background of critical utility and industrial facilities worldwide. Divided into five sections, the book examines topics comprising functions within and throughout industrial control systems (ICS) environments. Topics include: Emerging trends and threat factors that plague the ICS security community Risk methodologies and principles that can be applied to safeguard and secure an automated operation Methods for determining events leading to a cyber incident, and methods for restoring and mitigating issues—including the importance of critical communications The necessity and reasoning behind implementing a governance or compliance program A strategic roadmap for the development of a secured SCADA/control systems environment, with examples Relevant issues concerning the maintenance, patching, and physical localities of ICS equipment How to conduct training exercises for SCADA/control systems The final chapters outline the data relied upon for accurate processing, discusses emerging issues with data overload, and provides insight into the possible future direction of ISC security. The book supplies crucial information for securing industrial automation/process control systems as part of a critical infrastructure protection program. The content has global applications for securing essential governmental and economic systems that have evolved into present-day security nightmares. The authors present a "best practices" approach to securing business management environments at the strategic, tactical, and operational levels.

Since the initial inception of this book, there have been significant strides to safeguard the operations of our world’s infrastructures. In recent years, there has also been a shift to more fluid postures associated with resilience and the establishment of redundant infrastructure. In keeping with the fast-changing nature of this field, Critical Infrastructure: Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, Third Edition has been revised and updated to reflect this shift in focus and to incorporate the latest developments. The book begins with the historical background of critical infrastructure and why it is important to society. It then explores the current trend in understanding the infrastructure’s sensitivity to impacts that flow through its networked environment. Embracing an "all-hazards approach" to homeland security, critical infrastructure protection and assurance, and emergency management, the authors examine: The National Response Framework (NRF) and how it can be applied globally The relationships between the public and private sectors, and the growing concept of public-private partnerships The shift from the need-to-know paradigm to one based on information sharing, and the nature of necessary controls as this shift continues The need for organizations to adopt resilient planning, implementation, and decision-making processes in order to respond to changes within the threat environment What, where, why, and how risk assessments are to be performed, and why they are needed The impact of new regulation, individually applied self-regulation, industry and government regulation, and law enforcement In the final chapters, the book discusses current information sharing and analysis centers (ISACs), distributed control systems, and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems and their challenges. It concludes by exploring current challenges associated with establishing a trusted network across various sectors—demonstrating how models of information can be categorized and communicated within trusted communities to better assure the public-private relationship.

Sie können noch so viel in Hardware, Software und Abwehrmechanismen investieren, absolute Sicherheit für Ihre IT-Infrastruktur wird es nicht geben. Wenn Hacker sich wirklich anstrengen, werden sie auch in Ihr System gelangen. Sollte das geschehen, müssen Sie sowohl technisch als auch organisatorisch so aufgestellt sein, dass Sie die Gegenwart eines Hackers erkennen und darauf reagieren können. Sie müssen in der Lage sein, einen Zwischenfall zu deklarieren und die Angreifer aus Ihrem Netzwerk zu vertreiben, bevor sie erheblichen Schaden anrichten. Das ist Network Security Monitoring (NSM). Lernen Sie von dem leitenden Sicherheitsanalytiker Sanders die Feinheiten des Network Security Monitoring kennen. Konzepte verstehen und Network Security Monitoring mit Open-Source-Tools durchführen: Lernen Sie die drei NSM-Phasen kennen, um diese in der Praxis anzuwenden. Die praktische Umsetzung der NSM erfolgt mit vielen Open-Source-Werkzeugen wie z. B. Bro, Daemonlogger, Dumpcap, Justniffer, Honeyd, Httpry, Netsniff-NG, Sguil, SiLK, Snorby Snort, Squert, Suricata, TShark und Wireshark. Anhand von ausführlichen Beispielen lernen Sie, die Tools effizient in Ihrem Netzwerk einzusetzen.

If there exists a single term that summarizes the key to success in modern industrial automation, the obvious choice would be integration. Integration is critical to aligning all levels of an industrial enterprise and to optimizing each stratum in the hierarchy. While many books focus on the technological components of enterprise information systems, Integration Technologies for Industrial Automated Systems is the first book to present a comprehensive picture of the technologies, methodologies, and knowledge used to integrate seamlessly the various technologies underlying modern industrial automation and information systems. In chapters drawn from two of Zurawski's popular works, The Industrial Communication Technology Handbook and The Industrial Information Technology Handbook, this practical guide offers tutorials, surveys, and technology overviews contributed by experts from leading industrial and research institutions from around the world. The book is organized into sections for cohesive and comprehensive treatment. It examines e-technologies, software and IT technologies, communication network-based technologies, agent-based technologies, and security in detail as well as their role in the integration of industrial automated systems. For each of these areas, the contributors discuss emerging trends, novel solutions, and relevant standards. Charting the course toward more responsive and agile enterprise, Integration Technologies for Industrial Automated Systems gives you the tools to make better decisions and develop more integrated systems.
