Organisations will now be able to bring their industrial control systems technology into the modern era and realise the benefits of increased connectivity while also reducing the risk of cyber attack
BAE Systems Detica launched IndustrialProtect, a military-grade solution designed to protect the industrial control systems of organisations such as power plants, oil refineries or automated manufacturing plants from cyber attack, allowing them to both modernise their legacy systems as well as improve their security.
The major applications for the IndustrialProtect solution will be organisations within the Defence, Energy, Utilities and Natural Resources sectors, where industrial control systems are integral to their efficiency, growth and productivity.
The security risks to these organisations can also have “real-world” impacts – affecting not only the safety and ability of the organisation to operate, but also the potential to cause significant economic, human and environmental harm should a security breach incident occur.

Realpolitik is liberating Syria from the Assad autocracy, while the institution-based international system – most notably the United Nations – has largely failed, because it depends on agreement among the permanent members of the Security Council.
Moscow seems implacably committed to supporting the Damascus regime. Such is the Russians’ commitment to their traditional activist role that they are underwriting their Syrian ally at great cost to their own reputation as a constructive institution-based player, rendering impotent the mechanisms so ably used in Libya.
Even if the Russians were acting otherwise, it remains dubious how effective UN and North Atlantic Treaty Organization intervention could be. A no-fly zone would have limited impact, since Syria possesses an impressive array of military hardware. A severe sanctions regime, even banks running out of money, might have less impact than thought. Sanctions would be ignored by Russia, China, Iran and others. NATO boots on the ground would be a disaster, embedding outside players in a complex world where denominational identity trumps international standards of right and wrong. Indeed, the regime continues to draw on significant public support, despite falling morale over the setbacks of recent days.
