ReCon: A New Chapter | Embrace the Value of Secure Two-way Communication
Implementing DHS Best Practices to Secure Industrial Control Systems

I recently attended the DistribuTECH and OSIsoft PI World, as an exhibitor and a speaker, and I had a number of great conversations with attendees about cybersecurity in the industrial, commercial, and critical infrastructure verticals. These conversations ranged from the theoretical down to the specific technologies, such as Owl data diode solutions, and hit upon the varied requirements and challenges these particular industries face every day.
One-Way Data Flow, Secured by Design

Modern advancements in industrial control systems (ICS) enable marked improvements in efficiency, production, reliability, and safety, all through increased use of “smart” assets and digital communications. However, this has led to a dependency on communication technology that is seemingly at odds with the ever-increasing pressure to enhance cybersecurity in ICS networks.

We thought long and hard on what to write about for our first blog post. It’s a special milestone! But it was inevitable that we address the current news headlines around cyber-attacks, the risks and the strategies to fight these threats. The New York Times recently published an article announcing the Russia hacking of utilities and critical infrastructure. Though some infiltration did occur, this was solely and specifically on the network side, operations were untouched. This is thanks to a hardware-enforced security technology called a data diode.
