The nature of IIoT devices and infrastructure makes them high-value cyber targets. This is because they are relatively easy to compromise and are often connected to internal networks with high-value content with links to other networks. Moreover, IIoT devices rarely have direct user interaction, and this unattended nature means that many types of device compromise are likely to go unnoticed and undetected – particularly when the malware does not disrupt the device’s primary functionality. Here are a dozen reasons why intelligent IIoT devices are attractive targets for hackers.
The path to securing the remote workforce should be seamless and experienced as a hassle-free balance between safety and a quality user-experience. It is pivotal to implement appropriate security practices, as inadequate measures can lead to unmanaged risks and the endangerment of corporate systems, data and employees.
Traditional network management approaches of multiple point products, manual change processes, monolithic policies and data silos no longer work. Business, risk, service and security assurance programs all need to be agile, efficient and anticipate future threats and remedies.
The spread of COVID-19 and the economic and trade disruption the pandemic has caused is prompting port managers to examine new ways to improve risk management and digital processes, according to the latest global ports survey conducted by Remy InfoSource.
The question is this. Is this skepticism based on fact or as a result of that well-established human trait – resistance to change? In other words, does the convenience offered by a cloud app outweigh potential security threats such as hacking, and how susceptible are SaaS (Software as a Service) cloud apps to attack in the first place? To answer this question, let’s consider Microsoft Office 365, which is one of the most widely used software packages on the planet with more than 27 million consumer users and over 100 million enterprise users.
From a security perspective, we also tend to look at IoT in the wrong way. With every new device, we assume the technology will be vulnerable with a very high risk of compromise. The reality is that most IoT devices have a very low risk individually, but their functionality is what leaves them susceptible.
With security resources and budgets stretched thin to accommodate remote workforces, cybercriminals were quick to capitalize on the increased attack surface and general uncertainty, striking with a 667 percent increase in coronavirus-related cyberattacks.
Organizations need to enhance current technical security controls to mitigate against the threat of deepfakes to the business. Training and awareness will also need revamping with special attention paid to this highly believable threat.
Expect the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic to bring lasting changes to our lives, from the way we authenticate identity to how we open doors – and even use public restrooms. If there’s a theme among these changes, it’s that they will favor contactless solutions. The use of biometrics to authenticate employees and customers has snowballed over the last decade. Expect demand from public and private organizations to grow even faster as they require accurate identification of workers, students, patients and many more people in response to new challenges resulting from the virus.
ON DEMAND: The physical security industry adopts datacenter information technology in bits and pieces, but not to the extent possible. This prevents organizations from making strides in reducing costs and complexity, rapidly responding to change, and delivering on the prime security directives of keeping people and property safe.
ON DEMAND: Chad Schermerhorn, Security Expert at Brivo, will discuss how your physical security stack should be an operational asset. It should be based on the strongest, and most-up-to-date smart security that can protect you today and adapt for unexpected threats that may come.
ON DEMAND: DevSecOps creates an environment of shared responsibility for security, where AppSec and development teams become more collaborative. With the right training and tools, developers can become more hands-on with security and, with that upskilling, stand out among their peers... however, they need the security specialists on-side, factoring them into securing code from the start and championing this mindset across the company.
The security ecosystem protects digital assets, physical assets, and people - the newly distributed workforce creates new and increased physical and cybersecurity risks. Situational and security awareness is a role every employee must play, and you’ll help get them there with awareness, cybersecurity hygiene and security practices that help keep company, employee and customer information safe.
