Kaspersky Lab Announces New Industrial Control Systems Emergency Response Team

Woburn, MA – October 18, 2016 – Fulfilling its mission to share cybersecurity knowledge, Kaspersky Lab launched today the Industrial Control Systems Computer Emergency Response Team (also known as Kaspersky Lab ICS-CERT) – a global CERT entity that welcomes collaboration with critical infrastructure operators, vendors and government institutions.

Modern cybersecurity requires not only the best technology, but also the best and the latest intelligence about threats, especially when cybercriminals are targeting critical infrastructure facilities. Through the Kaspersky Lab ICS-CERT, the company will share its years of knowledge and experience in securing industrial systems, as well as coordinate the exchange of expertise on cyber threats and protection methods between all interested parties.

The Industrial Control Systems Emergency Response Team is a special Kaspersky Lab project that will offer a wide range of information services – from intelligence on the latest threats, security incidents and mitigation strategies, to incident response, investigation consultancy and services. In addition to the latest intelligence about threats and vulnerabilities, the Kaspersky Lab ICS-CERT will also share expertise on compliance. As a non-commercial project, the Kaspersky Lab ICS-CERT will share information and expertise to its members free of charge.

“Today’s approach to cybersecurity highlights the importance of accumulating intelligence on the latest threats, in order to develop protection technologies,” said Andrey Doukhvalov, head of future technologies and chief security architect, Kaspersky Lab. “This is especially true for industrial infrastructure, which has specific threats, highly customized hardware and software, and strict requirements for reliability. As a security vendor, we have years of experience analyzing threats and helping industrial operators with threat prevention and detection, incident response, staff training, and the prediction of future attack vectors. We are confident that sharing intelligence, or, in a broader way, exchanging knowledge between vendors and operators, is an important step towards more secure critical infrastructure. By establishing ICS-CERT we are expanding the availability of the industry’s expertise in a way that no other private security vendor has done before.”

“As a provider of specialized security solutions for industrial control systems, the way we work with our customers is similar to the operation of a typical CERT entity,” said Andrey Suvorov, head of critical infrastructure protection business development, Kaspersky Lab. “True security comes with sharing information on the latest threats and security vulnerabilities, offering services like incident response, penetration testing and staff training. For several years we have also been involved in the strategic development of new cybersecurity methods, working with private and government institutions to optimize protection levels. Establishing ICS-CERT is a logical move for us to expand the availability of our intelligence, sharing our knowledge and expertise with the wider industry, as well as learning from the industry as the threat landscape continues to evolve.”

Kaspersky Lab’s ICS-CERT welcomes new members and all interested parties from around the world to collaborate and work together toward a more secure ICS environment. Information about membership, terms and conditions and our approach to intelligence sharing is available at the official website of the Kaspersky Lab ICS-CERT.
