Details of Year in Review

  • Industrial
    Controls System Vulnerabilities Report
    : The Dragos
    Intelligence team provides analysis of the ICS-specific
    vulnerabilities from 2018 and provides impacts, risks, and mitigation
    options. In 2018, Dragos tracked 204 public vulnerability advisories
    with an impact on ICS. 68% of advisories covered network-exploitable
    vulnerabilities, yet only 28% of these network-exploitable advisories
    provided mitigation advice sufficient to take effective action.
  • ICS
    Activity Groups and the Threat Landscape Report
    : The
    Dragos Intelligence team provides insights into threat activity groups
    actively targeting industrial organizations and provides details of
    their activity, methodology, victimology, and future concerns. The
    Dragos Intelligence team has tracked three new ICS activity groups
    since 2017 and identified a growing trend of adversaries using open
    source or commercially-available penetration testing tools to pivot
    from IT networks to ICS networks.
  • Lessons
    Learned from Hunting and Responding to Industrial Intrusions Report
    :
    The Dragos Threat Operations Center (TOC) provides a synopsis of
    lessons learned while proactively hunting for adversaries in
    industrial environments and responding to intrusions. In 2018, 37% of
    Dragos’ incident response engagements involved an initial vector
    dating over 365 days, while all other engagements were either
    inconclusive or detected and contained by facility teams and Dragos as
    they occurred.
