Presentation: ABC of cyber security

The ABC of cyber security:

  • A = assessment of the risk
  • B = best practices to address the risk
  • C = conformity assessment for monitoring and maintenance.

The aim of any cyber security strategy is to protect as many assets as possible and especially the most important – the “crown jewels”. Since it is not feasible, sensible or even efficient to try to protect everything in equal measure, it is important to identify what is valuable and needs greatest protection, identify vulnerabilities, then to prioritize and to erect defence-in-depth architecture that ensures business continuity.

Presentation: IEC and cyber security

Among the most critical challenges is the security of connected cyber physical systems. Very often little or no attention is paid at the design stage to ensure that connected objects are secure against malicious attacks.

The exploitation of cyber vulnerabilities of infrastructure systems is becoming an increasing threat to business and society’s overall security. Let me explain the unique way in which the IEC helps improve cyber security with the example of energy.

 


Brochure (e-tech articles): Protecting critical infrastructure – en

The range and cost of global malicious cyber activities (cyber attacks) are growing.
The cost is forecast to reach USD 2 000 billion by 2019, a threefold increase from the 2015 estimate of USD 500 billion. In addition to financial losses, concern is growing regarding attacks on critical infrastructure sectors. Safeguarding various parts of critical infrastructure from cyber attacks is becoming a priority for most countries. Energy installations are central to the entire critical infrastructure: without electricity there’s no transport system, no fresh water supply or waste water treatment, healthcare facilities, factories can no longer function.

Automation of manufacturing is increasing around the world. According to the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), it is estimated that more than 1,7 million new industrial robots will be installed globally in factories between 2017 and 2020.

Smart manufacturing is the term used to describe the trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies.

News release: New IEC White Paper – Smart and secure IoT platform

Geneva, Switzerland, 16 February 2017 – The Internet of Things (IoT) significantly impacts the global economy and is expected to grow exponentially over the coming years, transforming society as a whole. In order to develop a smart and secure IoT platform, certain critical issues must be addressed in detail to ensure security, interoperability and scalability of the platform. The topic attracts a lot of interest among a very large and diverse community of stakeholders, and the refined solutions will be key to the success of this technology now and for generations to come.

Anyone of any age or gender can benefit from Active Assisted Living (AAL). The proportion of people aged over 60 will almost double from 12 to 20% between 2015 and 2050, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). In line with this, the WHO states that currently more than one billion people live with some form of disability worldwide. The figure is expected to rise in the coming years as populations age.


News release: Security toolbox protects organizations from cyber-attacks

Geneva, Switzerland, 2015-12-17 – Cyber-attacks are among the greatest risks an organization can face. Having standards and systems in place to keep information safe has therefore never been more important than in today’s digital world. This is why the ISO/IEC 27000 series on security techniques for information technology has been updated to provide organizations with that added value and confidence.
