Building an industrial cybersecurity community

DNWP has during the recent years observed a clear call for discussion over cybersecurity especially from an industrial viewpoint. Members of the private network community are present in various industries such as power plants, oil & gas pipes, transportation such as railways, highways and airports as well as public security and safety field.

What is common in between all these service providers is that they are considered to serve the basic human needs. This caters the universal demand across the critical communications community to stay alert over cybersecurity topics and advance cybersecurity practices.

Technology drives the underlying cybersecurity themes in critical communications

An influencing theme for the industrial cybersecurity discussion in critical communications is the currently ongoing network technology upgrade from SDH (classic) towards the MPLS-TP (next generation) platforms that enable IP based services. This transformation marks a culmination point for the network security as the network design complexity multiplies. There are important decisions to be made when considering the shift e.g., related to connectivity and access to protect the communications stream from hazardous external factors.
