ZIUR publishes a new cyber intelligence report
The traditional approach to cybersecurity is no longer effective in industrial settings
The Gipuzkoa Industrial Cybersecurity Center, ZIUR, has published a new report called 'Industrial Sector October 2022 - Cyber Intelligence Report', which aims to analyze whether the traditional approach to cybersecurity to secure the industrial environment (OT/ICS ) is still valid against new threats. With this document, ZIUR intends to give a current vision of cybersecurity in an industrial environment, as well as provide a series of conclusions and recommendations to industrial companies.
The report explains that companies in the industrial sector need to grow, expand and benefit from the digital transformation in what we know as industry 4.0, the industrial internet or Connected Industry 4.0. However, this transformation process "has increased the exposure area of companies to cyberattacks," the document warns.
For this reason, this analysis aims to make the industry aware that cybersecurity, as we have understood it up to now, is not enough to deal with new threats, especially in industrial environments, which are more complex.
In this sense, ZIUR recommends taking industrial cybersecurity to the next level, through the adoption of the Zero trust security philosophy, security by design (Sbd) and defense in depth, including the implementation of a dynamic network environment, performing periodic safety audits every year and training employees.
