Recommendations

Long gone are the times when an air gap would have been considered efficient. Today, industrial and manufacturing companies are just as vulnerable to malware as any other connected enterprise. However, with operational continuity vital, it is worth considering a cybersecurity solution specifically optimized for industrial operations. Another big problem for this sector is the inappropriate use of IT resources by staff, which cannot be solved without regular cyber awareness training.

The wider adoption of virtualized IT infrastructure in Europe has resulted in the growing number of incidents with these systems. To mitigate this threat, a virtualization-optimized security solution is recommended. The physical loss of devices and media is another big issue for your region, demanding special attention during cybersecurity training.
