27 Strategies to better protect the Oil & Gas industry Upgrade defenses with next-generation toolsLayer protection base on need (example segment ICS from corporate network)Protect your data at rest ( HD Encryption / Digital Rights Management )Use Multi Factor authentication - Passwords alone no longer secureInvest on PreparednessJoin the ONG-ISACManage Privilege access
28 Quick low cost solutions & Countermeasures Remove Privilege access from usersDNS sinkhole (http://handlers.sans.edu/gbruneau/sinkhole.htm )Enable UAC ( User Account Control ) to maxEnable / use AppLockerBlock execution of tools like PsExec, PsLoggedOn, PsService & PsInfoBrowser Check (https://browsercheck.qualys.com )SNORT (http://www.snort.org )Implement SPF (Sender Policy Framework - )
