Best Practices
Can you outline some specific security safeguards and best practices to be taken for these types of malware? (IE: Duqu 2.0, etc)

Getting back to Dragonfly, it seemed harmless enough: it only scanned the control system, collecting data about the process including assets and parameters.

"... specific security safeguards and best practices..."

I think it starts with a deep monitoring of your environment and doing analytics on the logs. I doubt that there would be a specific safeguard that can help, it should be levels of countermeasures.

Re: Best Practices
I agree with deep monitoring and defense in depth but new malware has evolved to the point where there are layers and layers of obfuscation. Making malware very transparent in most cases. IE: GlassRAT

Re: Best Practices
Like IoT device, cannot ICS and SCADA systems be red-teamed to death in order to discover critical vulnerabilities that might exist? Before someone takes advantage of them.  ICS devices are here to stay.  Its what we do with them and how we monitor and assess their cybersecurity and vulnerability that matters.

Source and motive
It really depends upon who is behind the attacks.  If Dragonfly, for instance, had a government source/backer, then the information wouldn't surface on the black market because it's not being used for immediate monetary gain -- and one can speculate as to whether or not that makes one feel better or worse about the breach of their information.

I hear you. You never know, the governments may expose it into black market if it targets specific countries. :--)))

Pharmaceuticals?
It makes sense that being the target. Any piece of information could be used in many different ways as long as it relates to pharmaceuticals. Clinical trials and other things have high rate of ROI.

Ransomware
One thing is the actual incidents, another thing is the unknown extortion demands that don't reach the media. Even if an attacker "just" show that they can enter and read data doesn't mean that the financial harm can't be substantial. Today, everyone is (or should be) aware of the damage leaked emails can do, for instance highlighted by the Sony Entertainment hack. How much will anyone willingly pay to avoid that? And how much would someone pay to avoid a factory break down like the German incident?

How Machine Learning, AI & Deep Learning Improve Cybersecurity
Machine intelligence is influencing all aspects of cybersecurity. Organizations are implementing AI-based security to analyze event data using ML models that identify attack patterns and increase automation. Before security teams can take advantage of AI and ML tools, they need to know what is possible. This report covers: -How to assess the vendor's AI/ML claims -Defining success criteria for AI/ML implementations -Challenges when implementing AI
