Read the Rockwell Automation and ISMG research report: Cybersecurity Preparedness in Critical Infrastructure.
Critical Infrastructure organizations increasingly realize that downtime from cyberattack can be catastrophic. The Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack, for example, resulted in 5 days of downtime, millions of dollars in ransoms, recovery and federal fines, and caused widespread gas outages across Southern US states. What do we know about the state of cybersecurity preparedness in Critical Infrastructure today?
In this research report you'll learn where organizations are succeeding or failing to deploy key cybersecurity measures, including:
- How to avoid ‘The Big Shutdown.’ According to our 2022 survey, fewer than 1 in 5 organizations perform asset inventory audits frequently enough – allowing cybercriminals to stand up and take down a virtual machine before being detected.
- Which vulnerabilities to shore up first. Common vulnerabilities cited across five NIST Cybersecurity Framework categories can often lead to preventable breaches. For example, only 33% employ effective OT patch management today.
- Recommended steps to improve cybersecurity posture. Survey respondents and Rockwell Automation experts share insights to better prepare for the future and continuously improve resiliency.
