New Data Finds Industrial Control Systems Soft Targets for Adversaries


CyberX, the IIoT and industrial control system (ICS) security company, today announced the availability of its 2019 “Global ICS & IIoT Risk Report.”

The data shows major security gaps remain in key areas such as plain-text passwords, direct connections to the internet, and weak anti-virus protections. Although the prevalence of Windows XP and other legacy Windows systems has decreased year-over-year — driven top-down by management in the aftermath of NotPetya’s financial damage — CyberX is still finding unpatchable Windows systems in slightly more than half of all industrial sites.

Unlike questionnaire-based surveys, the CyberX report is based on analyzing real-world traffic from production ICS networks, making it a more accurate representation of the current state of ICS security.
