    Port of Beirut Incident: Can It Take A Century to Learn from Mistakes?

    Monday, 7th September 2020

    On August 4, a major fire broke out in a Port of Beirut warehouse and spread to 2,750 tonnes of stored ammonium nitrate. In the past, many incidents have occurred with ammonium nitrate: quite a few of them with disastrous consequences, often developing in a similar pattern to what we saw in Beirut.

    Integrated Protection and Detection A Holistic Approach for Critical Infrastructure Protection by Frank Beyer, ILF Consulting Engineers

    Friday, 1st November 2019

    The physical, electronic and operational security of critical infrastructure is subject to a wide range of threats. A significant increase in attempts to manipulate the related operation technology (OT) systems can be observed. The attacks against a Ukrainian power grid can be taken as an example of what such attempts look like. They are usually a combination of several coordinated activities, with the aim not only to provoke maximum damage to a system and to destroy the security of supply, but also to hinder response and recovery/restoration works as long as possible. Another example is the attack against a safety integrated system of a process plant using a tailor-made malware. This shows that not only the basic process control systems, but also the emergency shutdown systems are the subject of dedicated attacks.
