Trend Micro has released its semi-annual threat report (roundup) highlighting the increase in the number of reported data acquisition and supervisory control systems (SCADA) vulnerabilities, which has increased since the second half of 2017.

Many of these vulnerabilities have been found in human machine interface (HMI) software. SCADA HMI is the premier digital hub that manages critical infrastructure, and the data it presents has some recognition value for attackers.

The data also indicates that more vendors were able to create patches or mitigation methods in time for the corresponding vulnerability announcements.

While this is a welcome improvement, the sheer number of vulnerabilities discovered highlights why companies in critical infrastructure industries must stay on top of SCADA software systems and invest in multi-tier security solutions.

The European Union (EU), through the Network and Information Security (NIS) Directive, has already mandated that its member states enact laws that ensure a high level of security for critical industries and essential digital services.

The NIS Directive affects organizations that operate critical infrastructures. With the directive and corresponding national laws in place, operators in key sectors must take appropriate, proportionate and state-of-the-art measures to protect network and information systems, among other risk mitigation policies.
