VISION, EXPERIENCE, ANSWERS FOR INDUSTRY ARC VIEW JANUARY 11, 2018 A recent ARC briefing with PAS executives showed that they clearly understand the challenges of vulnerability management in industrial facilities. This understanding is reflected in the design of their industrial cybersecurity management solution, Cyber Integrity. Enabling Continuous Vulnerability Management for Industrial Control Systems By Sid Snitkin Keywords Industrial Cybersecurity, Maturity Model, PAS Cyber Integrity, ICS Vul- nerability, Vulnerability Management, Operational Technology (OT) Summary Industrial companies have made significant investments in cybersecurity technologies to protect their plants and industrial control systems (ICS). But many companies are unable to keep up with the never-ending stream of new vulnerability alerts from suppliers and groups like ICS-CERT. This leaves many plants at risk of serious cyber incidents, jeopardizing safety and operational reliability. Industrial companies need to recognize and ad- dress this serious risk. Managers need to make sure that plants have programs in place to help ensure that vulnerabilities are continuously managed. Operations and compliance managers also need continuous visibility into vulnerability management efforts across all facilities to help ensure timely and appropri- ate cyber risk mitigation. ARC Advisory Group recently discussed continuous ICS vulnerability management with PAS executives. Vulnerability management of the ICS in complex, multi-vendor industrial facilities is a key focus of the company's Cyber Integrity solution 1 . 1 For more capabilities, see PAS Solution Designed to Provide a Foundation for Ef- fective Cybersecurity Management, June 9, 2016.
