Cyberattacks aren't just an annoyance but have real-world effects. Case in point: ransomware attacks on Colonial Pipeline and on food processor JBS. IBM Security's Chris McCurdy discusses these developments and security scenarios emerging from the cyber-physical fusion.
Are You Prepared To Deal With Rising OT Cybersecurity Threats?
Critical Infrastructure organizations increasingly realize that downtime from cyberattack can be catastrophic. The Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack, for example, resulted in 5 days of downtime, millions of dollars in ransoms, recovery and federal...
Compare your scores to industry peers for key industrial security protections.
Attacks on Critical Infrastructure are on the rise. Organizations need to leverage modern industrial security practices to avoid preventable breaches and the costly downtime, damage and public safety risks they cause. This quick...
Many of the principles for defending your IT environment apply to industrial control systems (ICS), supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems and other OT. But securing OT has additional complexities and considerations.
We’ve created this resource guide with more than 80 useful reference links,...
OT security has been at the center of the security conversation ever since the Colonial Pipeline attacks. Scott Flower, the founder of Pareto Cyber and a former global intelligence officer at FS-ISAC, discusses the challenges in OT security and where the industry needs to go.
