This book offers easy-to-understand definitions of cybersecurity technical terminology and hacker jargon related to automated control systems common to buildings, utilities, and industry, and explains the threats and vulnerabilities of critical infrastructure. Although written primarily for building designers and maintenance personnel, much of the terminology applies to cyber-physical attacks in general. Buildings today are automated because the systems are complicated so we depend on the building controls system (BCS) to operate the equipment. We also depend on a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) to keep a record of what was repaired and to schedule required maintenance. SCADA, BCS, and CMMS can all be hacked. The Cybersecurity Lexicon puts cyber jargon related to building controls all in one place. The book is a handy desk reference for professionals interested in preventing cyber-physical attacks against their facilities in the real world. Discussion of cybers-physical attacks on automated control systems is clouded by a lack of standard definitions and a general misunderstanding about how bad actors can actually employ cyber technology as a weapon in the real world. The book provides: Concepts related to cyber-physical attacks and building hacks are listed alphabetically with text easily searchable by key phrase. Definitions of technical terms related to equipment controls common to industry, utilities, and buildings—much of the terminology also applies to cybersecurity in general. What you’ll learn Readers will be able to quickly find cybersecurity-physical attack concepts and get a simple explanation of the meaning. Many of the most common types of cybersecurity-attacks are explained so readers can quickly assess the threat to their facilities in real time. The definition of as facilities, engineering, and cybersecurity acronyms. Who This Book Is For Architects, Engineers, Building Managers, Students, Researchers and Consultants interested in cybersecurity-attacks against facilities in the real world. Also for IT professionals getting involved in cybersecurity responsibilities.

Network Science and Cybersecurity introduces new research and development efforts for cybersecurity solutions and applications taking place within various U.S. Government Departments of Defense, industry and academic laboratories. This book examines new algorithms and tools, technology platforms and reconfigurable technologies for cybersecurity systems. Anomaly-based intrusion detection systems (IDS) are explored as a key component of any general network intrusion detection service, complementing signature-based IDS components by attempting to identify novel attacks. These attacks may not yet be known or have well-developed signatures. Methods are also suggested to simplify the construction of metrics in such a manner that they retain their ability to effectively cluster data, while simultaneously easing human interpretation of outliers. This is a professional book for practitioners or government employees working in cybersecurity, and can also be used as a reference. Advanced-level students in computer science or electrical engineering studying security will also find this book useful .

This book is a wake-up call explaining how to detect and prevent the hacking of medical equipment at hospitals and healthcare facilities. The vulnerability of the medical equipment inside the hospital to cyber-attacks far eclipses the actual building equipment. A cyber-physical attack on building equipment pales in comparison to the damage a determined hacker can do if he/she gains access to a medical grade network. A medical grade network controls the diagnostic, treatment and life support equipment on which lives depend. Recent news reports how hackers struck hospitals with ransomware that prevented staff from accessing patient records or scheduling appointments. Unfortunately, medical equipment can also be hacked and shut down remotely as a form of extortion. Criminal hackers will not ask for a $500 payment to unlock an MRI, PET, CT Scan, or X-Ray machine—they will ask for much more. Litigation is bound to follow and the resulting punitive awards will drive up hospital insurance costs and healthcare costs in general. This will undoubtedly result in increased regulations for hospitals and higher costs for compliance. Unless hospitals and other healthcare facilities take the steps necessary now to secure their medical grade networks, they will be targeted for cyber-physical attack, possibly with life-threatening consequences. Cybersecurity for Hospitals and Healthcare Facilities shows what hackers can do, why hackers would target a hospital, the way they research a target, ways they can gain access to a medical grade network (cyber-attack vectors), and ways they hope to monetize their cyber-attack. By understanding and detecting the threats, hospital administrators can take action now – before their hospital becomes the next victim. What you’ll learn How to determine how vulnerable hospital and healthcare building equipment is to cyber-physical attack. How to identify possible ways hackers can hack hospital and healthcare facility equipment. How to recognize the cyber-attack vectors—or paths by which a hacker or cracker can gain access to a computer, a medical grade network server or expensive medical equipment in order to deliver a payload or malicious outcome. How to detect and prevent man-in-the-middle or denial of service cyber-attacks. How to detect and prevent hacking of the hospital database and hospital web application. Who This Book Is For Hospital Administrators, Healthcare professionals, Hospital & Healthcare Facility Engineers and Building Managers, Hospital & Healthcare Facility IT professionals, and HIPAA professionals.

This book provides a template with step-by-step instructions on how to respond and recover when hackers get into your SCADA system and cause building equipment to act erratically or fail completely. When hackers shut off the water, turn off the building power, disable the sewage effluent pumps and activate the fire alarm, you have to do something quick. It is even more alarming that hackers can do all those things at the same time—even from the other side of the planet. Not every equipment failure or power outage is a cyber-physical attack. When your building is attacked, you probably won’t suspect it was a hacker—until you see a pattern. The building control system (BCS) will act "squirrelly" and you will know—it really is a cyber-physical attack. Once a cyber-physical attack occurs, it can mean years of court cases, job losses, higher insurance rates, and maybe even criminal litigation. It also takes years to overcome the loss of safety credibility to your employees and the local community. Cyber-Physical Attack Recovery Procedures provides a detailed guide to taking the right steps ahead of time, and equipping your facility and employees with the training, knowledge, and tools they need and may save lives. The book contains: A one-of-a-kind action plan describing how hackers attack building equipment, the extent of damage possible, and how to respond when a cyber-physical attack occurs. Detailed descriptions of cyber-physical attacks directed against SCADA systems or building controls, as well as cyber booby traps Invaluable appendices, including: Emergency Procedures, Team Staffing and Tasking, Alternate Site Procedures, a Documentation List, Software and Hardware Inventories, Vendor Contact Lists, External Support Agreements, and much more. What you’ll learn Possible ways hackers can cause building equipment to fail. How to quickly assess the threat to his facilities in real time, how to stop a cyber-physical attack. How to restore equipment operation without doing any more damage. Who This Book Is For Architects, Engineers, Building Managers, Students, Researchers and Consultants interested in cybersecurity-attacks against facilities in the real world.
