In any organization and in largely any industry, most network analytics are driven by IT. Healthcare providers are no exception. The insights extracted via network analytics offer serious opportunities for operational improvements and added value across departments. There are also significant ancillary benefits from a more cyber-aware and “plugged in” organizational posture — including improved information sharing, collaboration, and security.

It has been 10 years since Project Basecamp, a research project conducted by Digital Bond that investigated how critical operational technology (OT) devices and protocols were, to use the term they coined, “insecure by design.” Since then, we have seen hugely impactful real-world OT malware such as Industroyer, TRITON, Industroyer2 and INCONTROLLER abusing insecure-by-design functionality.

In our new threat briefing report, Forescout’s Vedere Labs presents the most detailed public technical analysis of Industroyer2 and INCONTROLLER (also known as PIPEDREAM), the newest examples of ICS-specific malware that were disclosed to the public almost simultaneously, on April 12 and 13. Thankfully, both Industroyer2 and INCONTROLLER were caught before causing physical disruption.

Digital transformation has ushered in interconnected networks that enable information sharing and collaboration. That’s great for efficiency and productivity, but many networks are flat, leaving organizations susceptible to cyberthreats that can move laterally, even across distributed environments, enabling hackers to exploit openings and pivot into their most valuable data.

Over the past few years, ransomware has been evolving because of two ongoing trends: Ransomware actors have been evolving quickly and have moved from purely encrypting data until circa 2019 to exfiltrating data before encryption in 2020 to large extortion campaigns with several phases in 2021. The trend continued in early 2022 with the emergence of new and very sophisticated ransomware families such as ALPHV and more attacks by ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) gangs such as Conti.
Across a health system’s digital terrain, the most vulnerable assets are connected medical devices. If those devices become compromised, the infiltration could impact a patient’s privacy, health and safety. Moreover, it could shut down care delivery for days, weeks or longer, with long-lasting financial and reputational impacts. According to Deloitte, an estimated 70% of medical devices will be connected by 2023.

That's because perimeter-focused security architectures that default to high trust levels on the internal network are ill-suited for an edgeless enterprise that increasingly supports mobile and remote workers as well as vast numbers of IoT devices. This Forescout white paper explains why visibility is essential for effective Zero Trust architecture and how continuous visibility can help you identify, segment and enforce compliance using Zero Trust principles. It also addresses foundational capabilities Forrester Research requires to designate solutions as a Zero Trust platform.

The diverse and complex nature of IIoT and OT security use cases can make the technology selection difficult, and unfortunately, copying IT security practices and technology will not result in a secure OT environment. To achieve lasting success with OT cybersecurity investments, managers must ask prescriptive questions during the technology procurement process. In this eBook, we discuss the seven questions recommended by Gartner for SRM leaders to ask during their OT security technology selection and how Forescout answers them.
