Security and safety incidents and standards
Safety and security incidents continue to take place within the critical infrastructure industry. Often the organisations involved in the incidents are following safety and security standards but yet the incidents still take place. This paper analyses safety and security incidents for critical infrastructure and non-critical infrastructure organisations and examines why the standards fail to prevent the incident taking place and whether cyber security safety standards should be merged. It also investigates what standards were being followed and what requirements of the standards would have helped with the incident in question.
