What Makes ICS/OT Infrastructure Vulnerable?
Ethical Hacking
by Ehacking Staff
6M ago
Infrastructure security for operational technologies (OT) and industrial control systems (ICS) varies from IT security in several ways, with the inverse confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA) tradeoff being one of the leading causes. Adopting cybersecurity solutions to protect OT infrastructure is a vital obligation since availability is critical in OT infrastructure. It necessitates a thorough knowledge of ICS operations, security standards/frameworks, and recommended security solutions. OT security in the past was restricted to guarding the infrastructure using well-known techniq ..read more

What is an Operational Technology (OT)? Operational technology (OT) is a technology that primarily monitors and controls physical operations. It can automate and control machines, equipment, sensors, and other assets. OT systems use in manufacturing, health care, and transportation industries. Operational technology is a broad term encompassing many disciplines, such as engineering, IT, and operations management. OT systems include: Intelligent Process Automation (IPA)– This OT system can control processes such as chemical reactions on a factory floor through computerized algorithms that moni ..read more

What is Deepfake, and how does it Affect Cybersecurity?
Ethical Hacking
by Irfan Shakeel
7M ago
Producing deepfake is easy. It is hard to detect. They operate with a description of reality rather than reality itself (e.g., a video). Any artifact a system can identify to support a Deepfake can also be removed in a subsequent Deepfake creation. This article discusses the art of Deepfake. What Is Deepfake? Deepfakes are a condition of artificial intelligence that allows you to create realistic-looking videos. They’re used in movies, YouTube videos, and more. The goal of using this type of AI is to trick people into thinking that what they see is real—even though it’s not. Experts at academi ..read more

How Is Hospital Critical Infrastructure Protected?
Ethical Hacking
by Ehacking Staff
8M ago
Hospitals hold a lot of sensitive data. When they are hacked, patient information is exposed, putting patients at risk because the hackers can use stolen personal information in several identity theft schemes. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has been working hard to protect hospitals from cyberattacks, but the fact is that while they do the best they can, there will always be breaches and more work to be done. The government is trying everything to ensure that hospitals are protected and that patients are aware of any breaches as quickly as possible when they do occur. Hospit ..read more

8M ago
Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are engineered systems that integrate computation, networking, and physical process. CPS classifies in many ways, including their scale, embeddedness, and the nature of their physical processes. In this article, we consider CPS from a software engineering perspective, examining how software engineers conceptualize CPS and which established software engineering concepts may be relevant to the study of CPS. We introduce a definition of CPS based on existing definitions but informed by our understanding of software development processes. While many people use this ter ..read more

How Frameworks & Policies are Protecting the Critical Infrastructure
Ethical Hacking

8M ago
NIST is a leader in the critical infrastructure protection field. NIST has been at the forefront of critical infrastructure protection since the 1990s and has been working on it since before that—in response to an executive order issued by President Reagan in 1986, directing federal agencies to assess their own security needs and capabilities. The result was FEMP (Federal Emergency Management Agency) and other organizations such as NIST. Since then, they’ve made huge strides: from helping establish standards for protecting information systems from cyber-attacks to providing technical assi ..read more

Gone are the days when phones were only used to make phone calls and send text messages; nowadays, smartphones are more akin to a pocket-sized version of a high-functioning microcomputer that can perform a wide range of functions aside from communications. Android phones are essentially a sub-category of smartphones with installed Android operating systems, allowing their features to function effectively. Today, virtually everybody owns a smartphone, especially the prevalent android versions. More advanced versions of these phones are released yearly with newer innovations and improved operati ..read more
