Industrial cyber security basics and asset management: IoT and ICS commonalities

Rail transport organizations should ensure they have the following in place before committing to net-new technology projects:

Cyber security in rail needs to be adequately covered by governance, process, and procedure perspectives.

Automated asset management and inventory are fundamental for assessing cyber risk, making technological decisions, performing vulnerability management, and assuring compliance.

Vulnerability and endpoint management is not limited to Windows systems.

Network security requires more than perimeter and bastion-based security.

Alerts, logs, monitoring, and SIEMs do not work out-of-the-box.

Risk management frameworks are necessary for considering and managing cyber risk not only for Informational Technology (IT) but also for OT assets.

Technology needs people and processes.
