Cynic Modelling for Legacy Energy Infrastructure

A brief synopsis of my findings in “Legacy Energy Infrastructure Attack Surface Assessment, Threat Count, & Risk Profile” using my “cynic modeller”:

  1. Adversaries who are attracted to the contained assets: Everyone (hobbyists, criminals, state actors, your gran)
  2. Attack surface: As far as the eye can see
  3. Attackers who are capable of acquiring the assets starting from the attack surface: Lots
  4. Therefore the attacker population size is: Computer literate population of earth
  5. Threat count: Np-Complete;
  6. Emerging threats: IIoT and non-cybersec savvy devops rushing intodigital transformation projects
  7. Risk level: Orbital
  8. Impact of realized threat: Expansive (yes, expansive not expensive, but that too)

Assessment: Buy gas lamps, work on your natural night vision, learn to skin rabbits, move far far away from nuclear reactors, buy shares in candle companies.
