This white paper shows how you can connect IT and OT made by different manufacturers into secure, transparent overall system and keep tabs on everything, despite the increasing complexity of system landscapes.
No business today is immune from cyberattack. More and more ransomware is aimed at industrial plant OT. It no longer matters how big or small the target is or what industry it’s in. The consequences can be serious, from days of plant downtime, to contractual penalties due to failing to comply with production schedules, to a damaged image among customers and production partners. And when it comes to ransomware, blackmail is often added to the list.
According to a study by security firm Sophos, the average damage caused by each cyberattack on manufacturing businesses is $1.52 million. Sophos also says that more than a third of manufacturing companies complained of a ransomware attack in the past twelve months. Insurance can cover some or all of the damage caused, but only if the claimant has actively taken precautions beforehand.
The white paper also includes a complete graphical overview of all the relevant topics and a guide containing recommendations around security aspects in production.
