Malicious attacks on industrial systems – including industrial control systems (ICS) and supervisory control and data acquisition systems (SCADA) – have increased significantly in recent years.
As the Stuxnet and BlackEnergy attacks have shown, one infected USB drive or single spear-phishing email is all it takes for attackers to bridge the air gap and penetrate an isolated network. Traditional security is no longer enough to protect industrial environments from cyber threats. As threats targeting critical infrastructure increase, choosing the right advisor and technology partner to secure your systems has never been more important. Kaspersky Industrial Cyber Security (KICS) is a portfolio of technologies and services designed to secure truly industrial layers and elements of organization – including SCADA servers, HMI panels, engineering workstations, PLCs, network connections and even engineers – without impacting on operational continuity and consistency of the technological process.
Industrial Cyber Security
Many IT security strategies are focused on data protection and rely on the concept of the ‘C-I- A’ model: ‘data’: Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability. Most OT systems prioritize continuity above all else; protection is not about ‘data’ but about ‘process’: Availability, Integrity and Confidentiality, in that order. This is what distinguishes industrial cybersecurity needs — the highest quality security solution is effectively useless if it puts the availability (and in some cases the integrity) of processes at risk.

Kaspersky Industrial Cyber Security is a portfolio of technologies and services designed to secure every industrial layer, including SCADA servers, HMI panels, engineering workstations, PLCs, network connections and people – without impacting on operational continuity and consistency of the technological process.
KICS – A Centralized Security System for both Nodes & Networks
To ensure the highest levels of protection from all attack vectors, security on the industrial floor should operate at both node and network levels. To ensure optimal control, ease of management and visibility. KICS is controlled via a single management console, Kaspersky Security Centre. This centralized management capability ensures ease of control and visibility not only of the industrial layers at multiple sites, but across the surrounding business floors too.
