Understanding Your Systems Is Key To ICS Security

  • Security professionals must first acquire a clear understanding of what they have and what it does before designing security controls to match.
  • It’s important for plants to preserve institutional knowledge of the OT environment proactively before experienced professionals retire.

“I want to know what I have and I want to know what it’s doing.”

Having served as cyber security consultant at Exelon for the past three years, Scott Saunders is dedicated to improving security-event monitoring in the OT world across the six Exelon utilities by creating a brand-new, centralized, industrial control system security operations center.
