In July 2020, the National Security Agency (NSA) and Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) issued a joint cybersecurity advisory recommending “Immediate Actions to Reduce Exposure Across all Operational Technologies and Control Systems.” The advisory emphasized “cyber actors have demonstrated their continued willingness to conduct malicious cyber activity against Critical Infrastructure (CI) by exploiting Internet-accessible […]
Cynalytica’s newsletter for January 2021 is now available. This edition focuses on the insufficiency of best practices in OT cybersecurity and the risks Serial-to-Ethernet Converters pose to critical infrastructure.
I am not sure how many more wake up calls it will take before we all start to acknowledge that we are considerably behind in our protection of Industrial Control System environments for our Nations Critical Infrastructure. The recent compromise of Solarwinds and the Sunburst Hack should shake this fact into the heart and soul […]
In industrial automation, Serial to Ethernet Converters/Gateways and Serial Device Servers are a long-established and widely used method for enabling remote communications and monitoring of devices that only support serial interfaces such as RS-232, RS-485, and RS-422 to name a few. The devices are typically used to convert serial to ethernet protocols (and vice versa) […]
Cyber attacks on critical infrastructure’s Industrial Control Systems (ICS) are still on the rise due, for the most part, to the increase in cybercrime and geopolitical tensions – tensions that ironically were fueled by a barrage of cyber campaigns focused on compromising essential services over the past decade. Exacerbating the problem is the rate at […]
Our latest Use Case demonstrates how the SerialGuard AnalytICS Platform can be used to validate serial data as well as identify and pinpoint issues that may impact operational efficiency.
Through an Industrial Control System test environment, we demonstrated how the SerialGuard AnalytICS Platform enables operators to quickly detect and investigate configuration changes and prevent eventual operational or cyber-physical consequences.
Cynalytica will present on November 5th, at the MOSAICS* JCTD** Industry Day, its discovery and analysis of a new and sophisticated malicious cyber campaign targeted against the US Oil & Natural Gas Sector.
Cynalytica is excited to present at More Situational Awareness for Industrial Control Systems (MOSAICS) Joint Capability Technology Demonstration (JCTD) Virtual Industry Days on the 4th and 5th of November 2020.
Cynalytica is excited to participate in The Northern Virginia Technology Council’s (NVTC) fifth annual Capital Cybersecurity Summit. Our Executive Vice President of Data Science, Jessica Ohnona, will join a panel of industry speakers on Thursday, October 22nd at 2:00pm-3:00pm EST
