As cybersecurity concerns rise across all industries, as media and service companies, Telecommunications and Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) face particular challenges. With massive amounts of client data and critical infrastructure, they are tempting targets for hackers. Telecom and CSPs need security solutions that can adapt and evolve with them, and respond to challenges unique to their industries.
IT security has never been so important, as hacks and data breaches are at an all-time high (and climbing). When it comes to the security of your data and infrastructure, visibility and control are paramount. You can put in place all manner of corporate policies and password rules, but oversight of administrator actions and the ability to review past activity are paramount for both peace of mind and compliance with stringent cybersecurity regulations.
Industrial plants and power utilities commonly employ the well-established Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) framework to manage their Operational Technology (OT) systems. In recent years, SCADA’s cyber risk exposure has increased with the advent of the Internet and the IP-enabling of traditionally isolated SCADA system elements.
Despite the globally-increasing threat of cyber attack, and what feels like near-daily major news reports of data breaches in our most sensitive industries, many companies still under-value cybersecurity. While the data breach fatigue is real, organizations from every sector need to ramp up their IT security practices.
