ICS Malware Prevention

ICS Malware Prevention

Studies have shown that malware related incidents are the number one cause of cyber-related production losses and upsets in Industrial control systems. As such, malware prevention (e.g. anti-virus, whitelisting) is an important component of an overall ICS security program. However, deployment of malware prevention in an ICS can be challenging. ICS malware prevention policies and procedures need to balance the need for system reliability with the need for system security.

aeSolutions can assist in the development and implementation of an ICS malware prevention program and the deployment of anti-virus and/or whitelisting software to assist organizations in meeting the requirements set forth in ICS cybersecurity standards such as ISA/IEC 62443 and NERC CIP. aeSolutions has developed tools, techniques and templates to assist our customers to develop their Asset Management and Vulnerability Management practices, create and validate their Incident Response Plans, and assist with evaluating options to establish and staff a Security Operations Center (internal/MSSP/hybrid). Customers are encouraged to visit our Houston offices where we have established an ICS equipment/product testing lab. In addition to the ability to evaluate and test ICS IT and OT equipment, we have strategic relationships with several vendors of ICS Anomaly Detection products, and we can assist customers with hands-on product-comparison evaluations.
