How to #Build a #Cybersecurity Risk #Management #Framework

Source: National Cyber Security News

When our country’s businesses are safe, our nation is safe. That’s the message that former President Obama gave when he talked about his executive order on “Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity” in his 2013 State of the Union address. Just a year later, the Obama administration launched the “Cybersecurity Framework,” which is a guide on enhancing cybersecurity developed by the private sector.

The cybersecurity infrastructures of our country’s businesses support national efforts toward economic security, public safety and health safety. The infrastructures of cybersecurity also affect our businesses’ bottom lines, profitability margins and reputations.

Regardless of their risk profiles or size, all companies should build a foundation of cybersecurity risk management based on good business principles and best practices.

Getting Started on a Risk Management Framework

There are many aspects to running a business. The issue of cybersecurity doesn’t usually make the top 10 list of priorities unless a problem rises to the surface that companies can’t ignore. At best, cybersecurity is often a knee-jerk reaction to a problem or new regulation. At worst, it’s an afterthought.

In today’s corporate world, companies need a well-thought-out, strategic plan for cybersecurity to protect themselves and everyone else from potential sources of harm.

CYBERSECURITY VERY #WEAK AT #CRITICAL #DUTCH WATER #MANAGEMENT #SITES

Water locks and pumping stations in the Netherlands are in danger of being hacked due to inadequate computer hardware and software, according to an investigation published by the Telegraaf. Security software is updated just about every five years, a sign of poor maintenance, and the computer systems that control the water operations date back as far as the mid-1980s, the newspaper said.

“Locks and pumping stations can always be operated manually. You can never be totally safe, you never know what might happen,” a spokesperson for the association of local water boards told the paper. Security is a top priority, but manual operation is always available in case the automated systems are hacked, the spokesperson added.

Business association Evofenedex called noted the urgency of maintaining critical infrastructure for the transportation of goods. “The hacking of a sea container terminal earlier this year at the Port of Rotterdam shows that importance. That hack cost Dutch businesses tens of millions of euros from delays and product damages,” an Evofenedex spokesman said.

Software and hardware updates are a key method of thwarting hackers searching for known vulnerabilities. By hacking a water lock or a pump, a hacker could control the gates that determine if water is blocked or released.

The newspaper also raised issue with the poor choice of passwords used to access remote operations of sewage pumps and locks.
