Industrial systems have transitioned from proprietary architecture to industry standards based architecture. While this transition has brought many benefits with it, it has also increased the potential security risks from various threats. What this means is that one must take proper steps to protect the industrial systems. A lot of the security concepts from office systems can be adapted to industrial systems; one of these concepts includes the identification of threats to security. It is generally best to start first with the concept of identifying common threats to industrial systems.
