Industrial Control System ISAO (ICS-ISAO) Announces NetFoundry Strategic Partnership & Zero Trust Webinar 7/1/2020

ICS Zero Trust Model Best Practice Implementation – Zero Trust Technology Innovation

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FL, US, June 29, 2020 / — The Industrial Control System Information Sharing & Analysis Organization (ICS-ISAO), a division of the International Association of Certified ISAOs (IACI) announced today a strategic global partnership with NetFoundry™, Inc. to support enabling adoption of Zero Trust security protection best practice including a Webinar, Wednesday, July 1, 2:00PM – 3:00PM EST. ICS manufacturers, critical infrastructure facility operators, vendors, integrators and the organizations they support can operationalize a Zero Trust Model to improve network security protections for the growing number of connected devices.

Cyber and physical systems and technologies are essential to the operation and efficient functioning of critical infrastructure. Industrial Control Systems (ICS) represent the different types of control systems and associated instrumentation (devices, systems, networks and controls) to operate and automate industrial processes. Successful attacks against ICS networks could result in catastrophic, even national disaster impacts and massive outages impacting hundreds of thousands of users.

Automation, artificial intelligence and machine learning continue to provide critical infrastructure owners and operators with speed, agility, and cost savings. But with rapid innovation, cyber threats and vulnerabilities are ever-expanding to disrupt infrastructure, processes and steal proprietary and confidential information. To secure critical operations infrastructures, a Zero Trust network segmentation strategy is a crucial step in network security.

The ICS-ISAO and NetFoundry™ are committed to enabling proven security protections for ICS connections to enterprise networks and applications by providing access to proven, agile, and secure Zero Trust technology innovation.

Galeal Zino, Founder & CEO of NetFoundry™ states, “Organizations such as the Industrial Control System ISAO insist on the strongest security. We are proud that the ICS-ISAO chose NetFoundry™ Zero Trust technology to secure ICS-ISAO applications".

“Network architectures continue to become increasingly complex where the traditional methods of perimeter-based network security can no longer be relied upon.” said Deborah Kobza, IACI President. “Achieving stronger security protections requires a Zero Trust (never trust, always verify) approach. The level of protection and efficiency the ICS industry and their customers gain from working with NetFoundry™ to implement Zero Trust enables trusted security protection resilience."
