    HAYDEN RECOGNIZED BY INDEGY AS ONE OF 10 ICS SECURITY INFLUENCERS FOR 2018

    https://blog.indegy.com/industrial-cyber-security-influencers-2018

    In February 2018 Indegy Industrial Cyber Security published a blog article entitled, "10 Industrial Cyber Security Influencers Offer Expert Insights for 2018."  In this blog, Ernie offered the following advice:

    For 2018 my first recommendation to any and all organizations relying on industrial control systems (ICS) is to hire a qualified, experienced company or individuals to conduct a thorough ICS security assessment of the organization and facilities.

    The security assessment should include both cyber and physical security inspections of systems, buildings, and property looking for vulnerabilities as well as strengths/good practices. The vulnerabilities need to be identified and a recommended corrective action should be documented. 

    The vulnerabilities should then be assessed relative to their resulting risk to the plant/enterprise and classified as Critical, High, Medium, Low or Informational. Hence, the management can take this list of issues and focus their resources -- i.e., manpower and money -- on the higher risk issues first. Such an assessment is a great way to start the year and can help with budgeting, resource assignment and identification of key concerns.

    Of course, anything potentially affecting safety or production should be attended to first.
