GAMBICA forms industrial network security group
07 May 2013
GAMBICA has formed an industrial network security group to identify standards and best practice for members and their customers to help counter the threats of viruses, industrial sabotage and terrorism.
According to Steve Brambley, deputy director of GAMBICA, industrial network security measures must take into account the needs of the system – and the automation industry has a part to play as the experts in integrating their own systems into a wider security policy. They need a voice and a presence to tackle these issues and GAMBICA’s new group aims to provide this.
Brambley says: "Defence-in-depth is what is needed; because there is no single solution to industrial network security – it is systematic. Industrial network system security is just part of the wider topic of security and needs to be integrated, not treated separately.”
