What do you do to keep your network secure?

Nowadays one only needs to read the newspaper headlines to appreciate the importance of Industrial Network Security. Almost daily an article comes out describing the threat to our critical infrastructure, from spies in our electrical grid to the looming threat of cyberwar.

Whether we talk about process control systems that run chemical plants and refineries, supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems for utilities, or factory automation systems for discrete manufacturing, the backbone of our nation’s critical infrastructure consists of these industrial networks and is dependent on their continued operation.

The second edition ofDavid J Teumim's easy-to-read book, Industrial Network Security,  introduces managers, engineers, technicians, and operators on how to keep our industrial networks secure amid rising threats from hackers, disgruntled employees, and even cyberterrorists.
