More signal. Less noise.

2017 cyberattacks proved more numerous, sophisticated, and ruthless than in years past.

WannaCry, NotPetya, ransomware-as-a-service, and fileless attacks abounded. And, that’s not everything. The victims of cybercrime ranged from private businesses to the fundamental practices of democracy. Read The Cylance Threat Report: 2017 Year in Review Report and learn about the threat trends and malware families their customers faced in 2017.

Daily briefing.

SecurityWeek's ICS Cyber Security Conference

There's growing awareness among corporate board members of the cyber risks to industrial control systems. That's one of the relatively positive outcomes of the pain inflicted by last year's NotPetya infestations. Symposiasts at SecurityWeek's ICS Security Conference in Atlanta expressed some gratification at the extent to which traditional Risk Management Framework practices are increasingly being adopted. Unsurprisingly, they think there's more work to be done.

In particular they see asset management as a widespread deficiency. Organizations continue to scramble, improvising asset management even in the course of incident response. Sound configuration management can't be taken for granted, especially when industrial plants use equipment they acquired years ago, and for which documentation may be sadly lacking. And knowing your attack surface, Rockwell Automation's Umair Masud said, was likely to be at least as important as, and arguably more important than, detailed intelligence of particular threats.

While there may be an approaching convergence of IT and OT, the two worlds remain farther apart, culturally and technically, than one might wish. Indegy's Barak Perelman emphasized the informal modes of information transmission still found in OT (that system was inherited, there were lots of changes made along the way, it's been around for years, and there's no documentation) and a lack of IT appreciation for the realities of industrial systems ("No, I can't just restart the turbine").

Dragos, in a presentation on Xenotime, the threat actor behind the Trisis malware that hit safety systems in an unnamed Saudi energy production facility, emphasized the disturbing news that cyberattacks were now designed to kill. Trisis was intended to be lethal, and other such attacks can be expected. Dragos CEO Robert M. Lee did offer some encouragement when he cautioned people against forming a picture of the attacker as hyper-competent and effectively invincible. Instead, he argued, remember that they make mistakes. They certainly did with Trisis—their attack on safety systems shut the facility down, twice, which wasn't their intention. Lee suggested an alternative picture of the ICS hacker: they're 18 to 30 years old, in their first government job, and dealing with management and PowerPoint "just like you."

FireEye yesterday attributed "with high" confidence the Triton/Trisis attack against safety systems in a Saudi petrochemical facility to Russia. The attribution might more strictly be one of association or involvement: FireEye concluded that some of the code was written by the Central Scientific Research Institute of Chemistry and Mechanics (CNIIHM) in Moscow, an organization of course operated by the Russian government. Who else may have been involved in the attacks, and how they came to be given the code, remain complicated questions. The evidence FireEye cites is of the convincing circumstantial variety—code written using Cyrillic characters, its preparation coinciding with Moscow office hours, an apparent handle linked to a known Russian individual, IP addresses etc. That CNIIHM has the capability to prepare code like Triton/Trisis seems clear.

The US has begun to reach out directly to individuals involved in Russian influence operations. US Cyber Command is reported to be direct-messaging trolls engaged in attempts to disrupt elections and otherwise make mischief. The message is simple and direct: we know who you are and what you're doing, and you'd be well-advised to knock it off. Observers differ as to how effective this will be as a deterrent, but recent US indictments of individual Russian nationals for their role in influence operations give the warnings some point. And it's unknown what other retaliatory operations Cyber Command may have under preparation or under way.

A Cylance study concludes that threat intelligence, while a good thing, also drives the bad actors to improve.

Notes.

Today's issue includes events affecting China, Iran, Russia, Saudi Arabia, United Kingdom, United States.

A year in, companies unsure of risk under China's Cyber Security Law, says Control Risks.

Over a year into China’s Cyber Security Law, Control Risks experts say its vague definition and application leaves multinational companies struggling to understand their risk. Further, how strictly the government will crack down and the extent of penalties for non-compliance remain open questions. Nonetheless, companies operating in China must understand their unique exposure and specific cyber, physical and procedural requirements. Let Control Risks help you make the critical decisions to seize your opportunities in China.
