No surprise here that operations/uptime trumps shoring up cyber security for ICS/SCADA folks, but Frymier's point that an attack could cause an outage is the bottom line here. And the data indicating that patching is still not common practice is interesting, especially now that more (but not enough) ICS/SCADA vendors are actually issuing security updates.
