Modern Industrial Control Systems (ICS) are very important in our life as we use information and communication technology (ICT) to manage, monitor and improve ICS usage. This continually exposes it to new threats due to the vulnerabilities and architectural weaknesses introduced by the extensive use of ICT. Different types of ICSs have common attacks in which these attacks are very sophisticated and have a great impact. This paper presents the results of our research on the impact of ICT attacks. Besides, it discusses how to protect ICS from attacks and policies/standards that each nation implements to protect its critical infrastructure. © 2019 IEEE.
