The chapter is devoted to the attacks modeling for Cyber-Physical systems of industrial enterprises with regard to risk assessment. In this chapter the analysis of corporate systems of industrial is held; systems’ attacks and risk assessment techniques were studied; software for attacks modeling are compared. Information models of corporate networks and attacks are developed; describes the design and basic functions of the module for assessing the risks of attacks in the corporate system. Corporate networks of more than 70% of industrial enterprises are potentially vulnerable to hacker attacks. Today, according to research by Positive Technologies analysts, hackers can cross the perimeter and get into the corporate network of 73% of the companies in the industrial segment. In 82% of companies, penetration from the corporate network to the technological one is possible. One of the main opportunities for obtaining unauthorized access to the enterprise network turned out to be administrative control channels. Solving the problem of ensuring the information security of Cyber-Physical systems is an urgent task today.
