Cyber security for the industrial enterprise is quite different from cyber security for other areas. In enterprise security, whether for an office or even for a bank or credit card processor, the acronym, CIA, for confidentiality, integrity, and availability is paramount and protecting the data in the servers is the first priority. In operations security, or industrial control security, the acronym is AIC. The first priority in a manufacturing situation is to keep the plant running (availability) with integrity and confidentiality if possible. AICRA is the place you will find out how to use this difference to secure your plant.
