Differences in opinion and perspectives on control system cyber security

Wed, 29 Nov 2017 00:03:00 -0500

James (Jim) Lewis is the Senior VP and Program Director for the Center for Strategic and International Studies - CSIS. I testified with Jim March 19, 2009 before the Senate Committee on Commerce Science and Transportation. Jim’s focus then, and continues to be, an IT focus on confidentiality of information. His view of a cyber incident is the traditional view of your connected to the Internet, using Windows, and somebody is trying to steal or compromise data. My focus then, and continues to be, reliability and safety of physical processes. With physical processes, you can’t hide impacts such as pipes breaking, trains crashing, or lights going out. The difficulty is trying to identify if the incident is cyber-related and then if it malicious.
