Industrial Cyber Security for Dummies discusses the basic concepts of cyber security in ICS environments and will help both information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) teams determine the foundational security controls appropriate to each unique industrial environment.

It demonstrates how real-world industrial breach scenarios put network availability, safety, and resiliency at risk.


Introducing the book, co-authors Jeff Lund and David Meltzer say: “The concern around cyber security in the industrial space continues to grow. Each day it becomes more crucial that industrial organisations understand the cyber landscape and know how to defend themselves against attacks. This book discusses the basics of industrial cyber-physical security and helps both IT and OT audiences understand what security controls are needed for industrial environments.”
