  27. 27. Cybersecurity – What are We Trying to Protect? • Endpoints • Included - Devices that are used are commonly used within plants or remote SCADA systems and have a direct impact on operations – e.g. Servers, Workstations, PLCs, DCS, RTU, embedded systems, etc.. • Included – Laptops and other equipment that may be brought into plants or remote SCADA sites for maintenance, etc.. • Excluded – Personal devices like smartphones, IIoT devices located outside the plant, etc.. • Networks • Included - Industrial networks used within plants or remote SCADA systems to interconnect control system endpoints – e.g. networks for Levels 1, 2,3, and DMZs. • Excluded - Networks used by applications outside the plant or remote SCADA system to communicate with the control system – e.g. SCADA networks, enterprise networks, etc.
  28. 28. • Premises • Network and endpoint security solutions have become commonplace in industrial control systems (anti-malware software, next-gen firewalls, etc..). • Adoption of advanced solutions like application whitelisting and deep packet inspection (DPI) firewalls is also growing. • Despite these efforts, cyber intrusions continue and remain a serious concern for industrial companies. • Questions Manufacturers Have: • Is lack of cybersecurity maintenance the major issue? • Have we reached the practical limit of what can be done with technology to keep attackers out of our systems? • Do we need some other technology solutions to address gaps in the current solution set? • Do we have to accept that attackers will get into our assets and shift our attention to rapid detection and better incident management? Cybersecurity – What’s Really Needed to Secure Industrial Systems?
  29. 29. VISION, EXPERIENCE, ANSWERS FOR INDUSTRY © ARC Advisory Group • 30 • Cyber Security Is Not Just a Feature, It’s a Mindset. • Cyber Security Is Not Just a Destination, It’s a Journey. Discussion
  30. 30. VISION, EXPERIENCE, ANSWERS FOR INDUSTRY © ARC Advisory Group • 31 • Concept of Enterprise Architecture, linking Plant Floor Operations with Business Operations across Enterprise has existed in many sectors • Making concept a reality is challenging for companies without huge IT staffs or budgets • Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) promise of accessing, aggregating, and analyzing data from standard assets and systems • Improved decision support and business performance represents further distribution Creating Modern, Open Enterprise Architectures in the IIoT Age
  31. 31. VISION, EXPERIENCE, ANSWERS FOR INDUSTRY © ARC Advisory Group • 32 • Before ”Industrie 4.0” or “IIoT”, different data, hardware, and software at each plant • No easy way to get plant data to corporate level • With IIoT, high demand to acquire, view, and analyze more data from plant, turn into actionable information • Save millions, improve decision-making, centralized management, machine learning and predictive analytics • Transition to Enterprise System Architecture is a challenge • To meet demands, needs automated process to deliver plant information to corporate level that is accurate, standardized, efficient, and secure Creating Modern, Open Enterprise Architectures in the IIoT Age
  32. 32. VISION, EXPERIENCE, ANSWERS FOR INDUSTRY © ARC Advisory Group • 33 • 1st Step: Shift away from spate OT & IT, align OT & IT so operational data shared with business applications • Avoid top-down, centralized enterprise architecture demand comes from top, but should be built bottom up, starting at sensor level, eye toward business objectives • Don’t think of plant as an island, but part of larger corporate system, common standards and data transport mechanism • Ask what is Needed To Do at plant level to support enterprise, answer always requires secure connectivity Creating Modern, Open Enterprise Architectures in the IIoT Age
  33. 33. VISION, EXPERIENCE, ANSWERS FOR INDUSTRY © ARC Advisory Group • 34 • Balancing need for security with need for data • Existing technologies get data to central system in open format w/o compromise • “Air Gapping” was security measure, but isolates OT from IT • Separating IT & OT won’t help enterprise’s data needs • To ensure proper security, data should be encrypted when shared across sites • Place edge gateway next to PLC, get data into open format while keeping secure Creating Modern, Open Enterprise Architectures in the IIoT Age
  34. 34. VISION, EXPERIENCE, ANSWERS FOR INDUSTRY © ARC Advisory Group • 35 • Build systems with central visualization & administration, essential to develop standards across entire enterprise • Plants with different PLCs, tags, addressing schemes, into standardized system, employ open-source protocol • Open standards: OPC UA, MQTT, get data from devices SQL: working with SQL databases: APIs (OPC UA, SOAP, REST) integrate with other systems • Once organization chooses open standard, standardize data models so all plant data looks same when sent to corporate • Protocol should have built-in encryption & “Stateful Awareness,” tells if connected to specific devices • Encryption & stateful awareness provides approach for getting operational data to business in standardized way without compromising operational security Creating Modern, Open Enterprise Architectures in the IIoT Age OPC UA & MQTT Protocols Both Offer Built-in Security & Stateful Awareness
  35. 35. Creating Modern, Open Enterprise Architectures in the IIoT Age • Open architectures that decouple applications from devices enables enterprise to get needed data without interrupting operations at plants • Example: Coupled architecture using a poll-response protocol on left; decoupled architecture using publish-subscribe protocol on right • Conventional System Architecture: Intelligent devices such as PLCs, coupled to applications through proprietary protocols, any application can interact with any connected device • SCADA software communicates with PLCs software often used as middleware because it has protocols needed to do so
  36. 36. Creating Modern, Open Enterprise Architectures in the IIoT Age • Decoupled Architecture: Applications not connected to devices, devices connected to infrastructure so applications can subscribe to required data • Rather than using SCADA as middleware, decoupled architectures often use message- oriented middleware, i.e.: MQTT • Devices publish data by exception up to central MQTT broker (on-premise or cloud), SCADA can subscribe to data, same data as ERP, MES, BI, etc. • Programs have direct access to data, plug & play device interoperability • Decoupled architecture provides single source of truth for tag info, better & simplified connectivity between sensors & applications across enterprise
  37. 37. Creating Modern, Open Enterprise Architectures in the IIoT Age • MQTT differentiated by lightweight overhead of two- byte header, publish/subscribe model, & bi-directional capabilities, need minimal network bandwidth • MQTT collects data from many devices, transports data to IT infrastructure, real-time, mission-critical SCADA systems, payload is data-agnostic • Used in applications: Facebook Messenger, Amazon’s AWS IoT service, IBM’s messaging middleware systems • Ignition’s OPC UA server provides connectivity to multiple protocols • Ignition’s open API facilities interaction & data-sharing between applications driver development for protocols, i.e.: MQTT
  38. 38. Creating Modern, Open Enterprise Architectures in the IIoT Age • Companies with multiple, disparate brownfield plants must standardize data & data models • Need tools to convert data to interoperable format • Edge gateways next to PLCs poll PLC data into decoupled, message-oriented middleware structure • Develop while existing SCADA directly communicates with PLCs then transition to new architecture • Vital to have solution that integrates tools for business intelligence, machine learning, open-source software, IoT, Edge computing, and business management Going forward, invest in solutions that integrate with other solutions to avoid data islands
