Cyber Security for Automated Industrial Control Systems

CURRENT MARKET TRENDS IN RUSSIA

In previous years, financial and economic activity of the enterprises has been the main focus of automation in the energy and other sectors. In most of the major energy companies, these projects are completed or are nearing completion. Companies are gradually turning to other vital areas such as modernization of infrastructure and data centers, billing implementing, automated systems for commercial accounting of power consumption, testing cloud technologies and analytics.

IT-expenditures in the energy sector are mainly associated with the modernization of existing infrastructure through the implementation of business intelligence solutions aimed to create dynamic payment systems, redistribute loads and create so-called "smart grids".

The market is moving towards the development of software solutions to analyze the controller-s firmware as a black box. However many vendors are not yet ready to reveal the open source firmware of their controllers.

Another common trend - conjugation of critical facilities subsystems with automation systems. Cyber security subsystem will soon be tightly integrated with access control, fire safety systems, video surveillance, and others. Comprehensive analysis security systems and conjugation with components of information security, deeply integrated into the hardware and software automation system platforms, such as authorization, authentication, access control and the development of appropriate integrated policy of cybersecurity are also quite promising.

To protect the corporate network perimeter against cyberthreats Rosenergoatom also continued to work on the firewall system modernization. In the central office of the group and operating nuclear power plants the system of cryptographic protection of video and conference channels was also modernized. Rosenergoatom notes that they monitor, review and analyze all information security incidents on a regular (weekly) basis.
