Progress, 13 years later
As someone that started working to secure ICS/OT for a national lab back in 2006, there has been tremendous progress in the space, albeit, at a slow pace. Up until recently, companies that developed products to secure ICS/OT didn't have a market. There were no buyers; no one responsible for ICS/OT security; hence the reason that the government and national labs weighed in to the fray. We've now become self aware, the market has matierialized and we're finally holding conversations that I only dreamed of 13 years ago. The attack surface for ICS/OT has expanded rapidly during that timeframe and our technologies just aren't quite there to protect them, yet. What to do in light of that? One, know what you have - identify your key ICS/OT cyber terrain. Two, operate as if you're ICS/OT is compromised already. Three, prioritze your risk and be sure to include safety/all hazards into your analysis, not just cyber. As Amit correctly noted, "It'll be about the real-world consequences".
