Industrial and manufacturing companies are suffering most from a threat that is commonly overlooked-generic malware, which gets right inside the industrial network. This means the implementation of cybersecurity solutions, that are designed for industrial and manufacturing organizations and that are aware of specific OT assets, are imperative. To further improve cybersafety, it is recommended that these organizations invest in cybersecurity services that include regular cyber awareness training.
European industrial and manufacturing companies seem to be quite well-equipped against most known cyberthreats. However, even they suffer from incidents like ransomware outbreaks. Therefore, a specialized anti-ransomware protection for industrial computers could add an additional layer of cyber resilience to their industrial environment.
