“CounterCraft helps us prioritize real vulnerabilities, obtaining TTPs and IoCs we wouldn’t be able to get any other way.”

The Industry

Critical Infrastructure

The Challenge

The use of legacy systems no longer supported by the manufacturer is the norm in OT.
There is a fear of disturbing equipment that has been operating fine for years, sometimes decades, for a security patch.
Traditional cybersecurity strategies from the IT world cannot be directly applied to OT.

The Solution

The electricity company used CounterCraft The Platform™ to detect threat actors using a vulnerable deception host to exploit the CVE-2018-13382 vulnerability and gain control of the substation. REE was able to gain visibility on exactly how the attacker carried out recon during the discovery and exploitation phase—before breach.

Gartner predicts 30% of critical infrastructure organizations will experience a security breach by 2025.

Cyber attacks on critical infrastructure and physical systems are on the rise. In 2022, 605 major ransomware OT attacks targeting industrial organizations were detected, marking an 87% increase compared to the previous year. What’s also concerning is that 83% of the total analyzed vulnerabilities reside deep within the ICS network.
