What is ICS?
Industrial control system (ICS) is a general term that encompasses several types of control systems and associated instrumentation used for industrial process control. Such systems can range from a few modular panel-mounted controllers to large interconnected and interactive distributed control systems with many thousands of field connections. All systems receive data received from remote sensors measuring process variables (PVs), compare these with desired set points (SPs) and derive command functions which are used to control a process though the final control elements (FCEs), such as control valves.
The larger systems are usually implemented by Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, or distributed control systems (DCS), and programmable logic controllers (PLCs), though SCADA and PLC systems are scalable down to small systems with few control loops. Such systems are extensively used in industries such as chemical processing, pulp and paper manufacture, power generation, oil and gas processing and telecommunications.
How Krash Consulting conducts ICS Security Assessment?
Krash Consulting follows a sequential procedure to conduct security assessment of critical SCADA systems to find out how exploitable they are against external attacks done by malicious users and how much they are compliant against the security standards. We use industry standard tools such as Nmap, Nessus for our assessments.
As part of our assessment, we adhere to risk based assessment which includes automated and manual assessment of ICS components and review existing policies and procedures besides understanding the implementation of ICS. Our assessment objective is to keep your SCADA system isolated and keep you determined on the importance of system hardening critical SCADA systems.
