Intelligent & Secure Industrial Control Systems with Embedded Linux

Start the Conversation

How do you bring feature-rich industrial control systems (ICS) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) products to market quickly and cost effectively with strong security?
Can you ensure Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) products meet industry security standards?
Can you mitigate cybersecurity risk and protect the integrity of products deployed in critical industrial and operational processes?
How do you find and fix vulnerabilities affecting third-party software such as open source packages in your ICS and IIoT products?

  • Enabling users to protect their systems and data, prioritize defensive investments, and better assess risk
  • Reducing risk associated with exploited vulnerabilities
  • Coordinating vulnerability disclosure across multiple vendors

NERC Critical Infrastructure Protection:

Security processes and controls to protect systems supporting the North American electricity system, including considerations such as cybersecurity management controls, security of communications systems supporting critical assets, and risk assessments of potential hacking or other security breaches involving these systems.

NIST SP 800-82, Guide to ICS Security:

  • Overview of ICS and typical system topologies
  • Typical threats and vulnerabilities to these systems
  • Recommended security countermeasures to mitigate the associated risks


Applying the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre’s guidance on security for ICS and related systems, including considerations such as vulnerability detection and timely system patching, configuration of security controls to reduce attack footprints and similar measures.
