In a world of rising cybersecurity threats, Dragos protects the most critical infrastructure, those that provide us with the tenets of modern civilization from increasingly capable adversaries who wish to do it harm. Devoted to codifying and sharing our in-depth industry knowledge of ICS / OT systems, Dragos arms industrial defenders around the world with the knowledge and tools to protect their systems as effectively and efficiently as possible.
The industrial cyber threat landscape is constantly changing with new adversaries, vulnerabilities, and attacks that put operations and safety at risk.
Ransomware became the number one attack vector in the industrial sector. Two groups, Conti and Lockbit 2.0, caused 51% of total industrial ransomware attacks, with 70% of their activity targeting manufacturing.
Overall, manufacturing was the primary target of ransomware across the board and accounted for 65% of all attacks, nearly twice as much as every other industrial group combined.
ICS/OT Vulnerabilities in 2021 doubled compared with 2020, reaching 1,665. Analysis of these vulnerabilities and related advisories found that 35% could cause both a loss of view and loss of control in an OT system, which are among the worst operation scenarios in an ICS/OT environment. Almost 90% of the vulnerabilities had no mitigations or alternative mitigations in place at the time of the advisory issued about them.
To learn more about ICS/OT-focused global threat activities, vulnerabilities, industry insights and trends download the Dragos YIR report 2021, which is an annual overview and analysis of ICS/OT-focused global threat activities.
Acting on ICS/OT Vulnerabilities
Dragos works with the community to help vendors provide more accurate, actionable, and easier-to-track advisories. In 2021, we significantly enhanced the vulnerability management features offered to customers through the Dragos Platform.
We assess vulnerabilities in our WorldView Intelligence reports in the Dragos Platform and categorise them by threat levels:
Immediate Action, Limited Threat, Possible Threat, No Action, and Hype.
Dragos also recommends four different responses to those threats:
Remediate, Mitigate, Monitor, or Ignore.
