A lot of people, including many politicians, have been advocating for a combination of a digital security measure and an electronic stability system.
But a number of experts are concerned about the safety of either one, according to a recent report from the Institute for Critical Infrastructure Technology.
The report found that the best electronic stability systems, or ESSM’s, could potentially have vulnerabilities that could allow an attacker to take control of the network, and the best digital security system could also be vulnerable to a hack, according the report.
The best ESSMs could allow for the attack to be made, and also the system could allow a malicious hacker to take over the network.
The security issues are significant enough that the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, in a statement on Tuesday, warned that “the U. S. government and other stakeholders should seriously consider whether to prohibit the sale of any digital security systems to any entity, including manufacturers, that is in the business of selling these products.”
“We strongly encourage the U .
S. government to take a hard look at the ESS and ESM technologies and evaluate whether they are reliable and robust enough to protect critical infrastructure,” the statement said.
The institute’s report also concluded that “more research is needed on these and other emerging technologies, and we should be mindful of the potential risks to critical infrastructure, including the risk of a catastrophic cyberattack on the grid.”
According to the report, there are several ESS systems that could be vulnerable.
For instance, a digital system might be able to take on the role of a network management system.
In the event that this happened, the system might allow attackers to take complete control of an entire grid system.
Or, it could allow someone to steal sensitive information.
Another problem with an ESS is that, “it is not clear that there is a way to ensure that the ESM has been built to be secure,” according to the institute.
It noted that “there are many security vulnerabilities in ESSs that could make them vulnerable to compromise, especially in the case of the digital system.
A cyberattack could also allow malicious parties to compromise the system or take over control of it, with the malicious actor controlling the entire network and possibly the entire power grid.
These are all issues that need to be addressed.”
The report did not address the security risks posed by the different types of systems, but it noted that there are “multiple technologies in use today” that could provide an ESM, including those that are “commercial, government, or academic.”
