To increase efficiencies in places like manufacturing floors, energy production and delivery, or interconnected transportation systems, operational technology (OT) environments are being connected to the outside world. Find out how this presents new threats to OT organizations.
Agile software and application development add a layer of abstraction and complexity that cybercriminals have demonstrated to be more than willing and able to exploit.
For anyone tasked with securing critical infrastructure the arrival and power of quantum computing might be keeping them up at night.
In a study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Fortinet this past January 2018, 429 global decision-makers across a wide variety of industries, responsible for the security of their organization’s critical infrastructure, IP level protection, IoT, and/or SCADA, were asked about this convergence process and the security challenges they are facing.
The convergence that is enabling new agile business models is also introducing significant new risks, many of which are catching organizations entirely unprepared. For example, nearly 90% of organizations have now experienced a security breach within their Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition and Industrial Control Systems (SCADA/ICS) architectures, with more than half of those breaches occurring in just the last 12 months.
Fortinet’s booth presence and education efforts at Mobile World Congress reinforce that commitment by exploring three themes: Agile Security for Mobile Cloud Services Delivery, Advanced Security for Industrial Operation Technology (OT) and the Internet of Things (IoT), and Mobile Security/Managed Security Services.
