Cyberattacks in the mining industry draw little attention from news sources, yet industry reports show that cyberattack frequency is increasing. Like other industries, mining companies have embraced digital transformation and the need for data. As a result, formerly isolated or air-gapped systems are now integrated into data-rich, cyber-physical infrastructures. As these data-rich control system environments become more connected, they are also exposed to greater cyber risk. The Security Reference Blueprint for Mining Industrial Control Systems describes an IT-OT security framework that enables owners and operators to protect system-critical systems from compromise, rationalize the scope of compliance, and more.
