The difference between IT security and ICS security

ICS securityIn this podcast recorded at IoT Solutions World Congress Barcelona 2016, Andrew Ginter, VP of Industrial Security at Waterfall Security, talks about the difference between IT security and ICS security.

On IT networks, the focus of a security program is generally preventing the theft of information. The primary focus on control system networks is safety and reliability, and preventing sabotage of those elements.

Listen to the podcast to learn more about the threats to ICS security and what you can do to prevent them.

Waterfall Security solutions protect communications from flowing into the industrial control network in power plants, manufacturing platforms, transportation signaling and navigation systems, water and waste management plants, chemical and pharmaceutical platforms, and in other IT/OT connections where damage to the business, operations or human lives cannot be restored by backup.
