Video Interviews with Executives from Utility, Power, Water Treatment and Manufacturing Sectors Shine Light on Challenges and Importance of Industrial Security
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ICS—Indegy, a leader in industrial cyber security, today announced that beginning tomorrow it will release a series of videos in October to support National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM), an initiative launched in 2004 by the National Cyber Security Alliance & the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. This year, Indegy will dovetail with NCSAM’s theme “Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT.”, by releasing a series of videos featuring industrial cyber security executives who are pioneering new approaches to “Own OT. Secure OT. Protect OT.”
“Once operational technology (OT) networks were connected to IT networks, the traditional air gap, or safety by obscurity model was irrevocably broken,” said Barak Perelman, CEO of Indegy. “We need to recognize that the same controllers found in power plants and electric grids are also used in virtually every industrial sector — automotive, pharmaceutical, transportation, food and beverage, building management systems, and many others. Therefore a malware campaign that targets these devices could have devastating impacts for every industrial sector and ultimately society.”
Each week during the month of October, Indegy will release a new video with a security executive who will speak from the front lines of OT cyber security. They will share their insights on the new threats to critical infrastructure and the steps they are taking to own, secure and protect against them.
