SAN ANTONIO, Nov. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The rapid application of the Internet of Things (IoT) has increased connectivity across cyber and physical systems to enable smart cities, smart manufacturing, and Industry 4.0.
However, industrial companies globally face increased cybersecurity risks and threats due to a lack of prioritization and insufficient investments into necessary ICT infrastructure and cybersecurity protection. Threats include cyberattacks on critical infrastructure and manufacturing sites, which are becoming increasingly attractive targets for hackers due to inadequate security protocols. For example, the cyberattack on an oil pipeline company, Colonial Pipeline, remains the largest cyberattack on an oil infrastructure target in the history of the United States.
The widespread digitization of industrial operations and rising incidences of cyberattacks on operational environments are driving the increased adoption of information technology (IT)/operational technology (OT) security services. As a result, organizations and senior management in industrial companies must rethink and realign their cybersecurity strategies to survive and thrive in a digitally connected world.
