Cyber-attacks and cybersecurity used to be the issues for those who use Internet and computers. The issues, however, are expanding to anyone who does not even use them directly. The society is gradually and heavily depending on networks and computers. They are not closed within a cyberspace anymore and having interaction with our real world with sensors and actuators. Such systems are known as CPS (Cyber Physical Systems), IoT/E (Internet of Things/Everything), Industry 4.0, Industrial Internet, M2M, etc. No matter what they are called, exploitation of any of these systems may cause a serious influence to our real life and appropriate countermeasures must be taken to mitigate the risks. In this paper, cybersecurity in ICS (Industrial Control Systems) is reviewed as a leading example of cyber physical security for critical infrastructures. Then as a future aspect of it, IoT security for consumers is explained.
