With the release of the 3rd Generation Partnership Project’s (3GPP) Rel-16 standard, 5G networks are better positioned to address the critical communication needs of industries that operate and manage critical infrastructure. The digital revolution has enabled these private networks to develop as either physical, virtual, or hybrid systems, drawing governments and private sector companies’ interest.

How to better secure your Electric Transmission Data Networks from advanced cyberthreats
How to more efficiently and comprehensively address your NERC CIP compliance obligations
Enterprise networks are undergoing a tremendous transformation in response to the digital revolution. Global expansion, mobile workforces, work-from-home, and cloud computing are shifting the location of work-related applications, data, users, and even control system operations. These changes introduce new opportunities not just for traditional enterprise systems but for operational technologies as well; creating a set of cybersecurity risks that must be addressed by two different points of concern and reference.
The Security Reference Blueprint for Industrial Control and SCADA Systems provides an IT-OT security framework in which owners and operators can protect these critical systems from compromise, rationalize the scope of compliance and more, using the core capabilities of Palo Alto Networks® Security Operating Platform.
Network segmentation is a critical, fundamental building block in today’s modern process controls networks (PCN). Once thought to be an optional practice, the recent increase in attacks on ICS/SCADA systems shows it is vital to network design and security implementation. Case studies on both the Target® and the more recent Ukraine electrical grid attacks indicate that these attacks were containable – even preventable – had the proper network segmentation been in place.
This document provides a high-level reference architecture for OT and IoT device security in Industrial Control Systems (ICS) using Palo Alto Networks’ Next-generation firewalls, the Cortex Data Lake, and IoT Security Service.
To gain, maintain, and expand competitive advantage over adversaries in a new digital operating environment, SOCs must be capable of seamlessly employing, integrating, and automating its capabilities across all environments and in any domain.
Join this virtual security roundtable to hear from our esteemed panel of cross-sector OT security experts on the important topic of securing industrial control systems during this era of accelerating OT digital transformation.
Since the release of the Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), organizations worldwide have implemented the framework to better understand and manage cyber risk.
SCADA and Industrial Control Systems experience unprecedented levels of agility, speed, and cost savings with the adoption of information technology and increased connectivity to supporting networks.
However, with this modernization have also come undesired IT vulnerabilities and other threat vectors which are increasingly being exploited by malicious actors.
The need for improved security in ICS has never been higher and has become a board-level issue for many organizations.
In this paper Mario Chiock, Cybersecurity & Disruptive Technology Executive Adviser and Del Rodillas Senior Manager, SCADA and Industrial Controls Cybersecurity go through the nine core capabilities that define this 21st century security platform for industrial control systems.
This executive-level whitepaper from industrial automation market experts, ARC Advisory Group, covers the challenges industrial asset owner-operators will face as they embark on their OT digital transformation initiatives.
The importance of protecting SCADA systems has never been greater than is the case today. With SCADA systems scattered
across its vast irrigation infrastructure, Murrumbidgee Irrigation lives this challenge every day. When security penetration testing pinpointed potential security deficiencies, Murrumbidgee Irrigation embarked on an initiative to transform its security network architecture.
After comparing different solutions and testing many of them, Murrumbidgee Irrigation chose Palo Alto Networks® Next-Generation Security Platform. In addition to providing
the company’s small ICT team with a single point of contact for multiple areas of its security environment, the platform enabled Murrumbidgee Irrigation to move from a largely reactive security posture to one that is predictive.
