The advent of Industry 4.0 will require secure ICS, IoT and cloud architectures to embrace an agile methodology to meet industrial and business demands. These architectures will need to take into consideration the security of embedded components and SCADA systems, sending traffic to the cloud as well as the security of cloud environments. Data privacy can impact architecture if personal identifiable information is collected to aid in analysis in these cloud environments.
Furthermore, we will look at the ISA/IEC 62443 standard and its impact on and applicability to these architectures. Concepts on network architecture design, defense-in-depth network, component selection and hardening, as well as the security development lifecycle’s importance on IoT, the edge and cloud architecture, will be presented and solutions discussed.
Describe the particulars of embedded ICS components and the challenges they present when architecting security solutions and how these devices interact within an edge computing environment.
Understand the ISA/IEC 62443 standard's relevance in helping design and define secure architectures for the IoT and the cloud.
Conduct proper network segmentation, utilizing security architecture safeguarding critical functionality to ICS processes during cloud communications.
