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 physical loss of devices and media, along with the electronic leakage of data from internal systems is a big issue for North American industrial and manufacturing companies. This demands special attention during cybersecurity training. Such training should occur regularly and involve renown cybersecurity professionals.
