Secure Contact – Project Scope

Why is it critical to Pen-Test Industrial Control Systems?

ICS networks are mission critical, requiring immediate availability.

Industrial control systems (ICS), including supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA)

ICS are found in many industries such as electric, water and wastewater, transportation, oil and natural gas, chemical, pharmaceutical,  and manufacturing (e.g., automotive, aerospace, etc). Because there are many different types of ICS with varying levels of potential risk and impact, there are many different methods and techniques for securing ICS, one of the most important method is Penetration Testing.

Consequences of an ICS incident/breach:

*  Impact on national security—facilitate an act of terrorism.
*  Reduction or loss of production at one site or multiple sites simultaneously.
*  Injury or death of employees.
*  Injury or death of persons in the community.
*  Damage to equipment.
*  Release, diversion, or theft of hazardous materials.
*  Environmental damage.
*  Violation of regulatory requirements.
*  Product contamination.
*  Criminal or civil legal liabilities.
*  Loss of proprietary or confidential information.
*  Loss of brand image or customer confidence.

Did you know?

according to the 2019 CyberX Global ICS IIoT Risk Report

84% of industrial sites have at least one remotely accessible device
69% of industrial sites have plain-text passwords traversing their ICS networks
53% of industrial sites have obsolete Windows systems such as Windows XP
40% of industrial sites have at least one direct connection to the internet

The security controls that fall within the NIST SP 800-53 Risk Assessment (RA) family provide policy and procedures to develop, distribute, and maintain a documented risk assessment policy that describes purpose, scope, roles, responsibilities, and compliance as well as policy implementation procedures. An information system and associated data is categorized based on the security objectives and a range of risk levels. A risk assessment is performed to identify risks and the magnitude of harm that could result from the unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, or destruction of an information system and data. Also included in these controls are mechanisms for keeping risk assessments up-to-date and performing periodic testing and vulnerability assessments.

 The operational and risk differences between ICS and IT systems create the need for
increased sophistication in applying cyber security and operational strategies.

Testing is useless unless it achieves actionable results. With Redbot you get reports written by experts that highlight key data and exactly how targets were compromised as well as recommendations on best practices along with complete review of remediation recommendations

  • ICS/SCADA Risk & Vulnerability Assessments
  • Penetration Testing (black-box, gray-box, white-box)
  • Real-World Attacker Tactics and Techniques- Controlled Manual Penetration Testing without Interruption
  • Actionable and easy-to-follow results – Risk Rating, Exploit Storyboard and Remediation Recommendations
  • Security Program Development and Deployment
  • ICS/SCADA Network Architecture
  • ICS Security Controls

Scoping Process:


Scoping Questionnaires, Demos | Recommendation and alignment


Budget Limitations, Client Expectations| Statement of Work Delivery


Scheduling Calls, Rules of Engagement, Meet the Team| Discuss final details


Daily/Weekend Updates | Notification of high risk findings

Next Step Exploit

Discuss Exploits and next steps | Key findings Report Creation


Executive Summary |  Detailed Engineering Report


Validate & Confirm Findings | Provide Recommendations


Retest vulnerabilities after remediation.

Threats to control systems can come from numerous sources, including adversarial sources such as hostile governments, terrorist groups, industrial spies, disgruntled employees, malicious intruders, and natural sources such as from system complexities, human errors and accidents, equipment failures and natural disasters. To protect against adversarial threats (as well as known natural threats), it is necessary to create a defense-in-depth strategy for the ICS.

Threat Agent


Attackers Attackers break into networks for the thrill of the challenge or for bragging rights in the attacker community. While remote cracking once required a fair amount of skill or computer knowledge, attackers can now download attack scripts and protocols from the Internet and launch them against victim sites. Thus, while attack tools have become more sophisticated, they have also become easier to use.
Bot-network operators Bot-network operators are attackers; however, instead of breaking into systems for the challenge or bragging rights, they take over multiple systems to coordinate attacks and to distribute phishing schemes, spam, and malware attacks.
Criminal groups Criminal groups seek to attack systems for monetary gain. Specifically, organized crime groups are using spam, phishing, and spyware/malware to commit identity theft and online fraud. International corporate spies and organized crime organizations also pose a threat to the U.S. through their ability to conduct industrial espionage and large-scale monetary theft and to hire or develop attacker talent.
Foreign intelligence services Foreign intelligence services use cyber tools as part of their information gathering and espionage activities. In addition, several nations are aggressively working to develop information warfare doctrines, programs, and capabilities. Such capabilities enable a single entity to have a significant and serious impact by disrupting the supply, communications, and economic infrastructures that support military power – impacts that could affect the daily lives of U.S. citizens.
Insiders The disgruntled insider is a principal source of computer crime. Insiders may not need a great deal of knowledge about computer intrusions because their knowledge of a target system often allows them to gain unrestricted access to cause damage to the system or to steal system data. The insider threat also includes outsourcing vendors as well as employees who accidentally introduce malware into systems. Insiders may be employees, contractors, or business partners.
Phishers Phishers are individuals or small groups that execute phishing schemes in an attempt to steal identities or information for monetary gain. Phishers may also use spam and spyware/malware to accomplish their objectives.
Spammers Spammers are individuals or organizations that distribute unsolicited e-mail with hidden or false information to sell products, conduct phishing schemes, distribute spyware/malware, or attack organizations (e.g., DoS).
Spyware/malware authors Individuals or organizations with malicious intent carry out attacks against users by producing and distributing spyware and malware.
Terrorists Terrorists seek to destroy, incapacitate, or exploit critical infrastructures to threaten national security, cause mass casualties, weaken the U.S. economy, and damage public morale and confidence. Terrorists may use phishing schemes or spyware/malware to generate funds or gather sensitive information.  Terrorists may attack one target to divert attention or resources from other targets.
Industrial spies Industrial espionage seeks to acquire intellectual property and know-how by clandestine methods
