SANS Survey Finds Cyber Threats to OT Environments Continue to Rise, Severity Reaches All-Time High
- Aug 27, 2021 4:52 pm GMT
The recently published SANS 2021 OT/ICS Cybersecurity Report, sponsored by Nozomi Networks Inc., finds ICS cybersecurity threats remain high and are growing in severity. In response, a growing majority of organizations have significantly matured their security postures since the last SANS OT/ICS survey in 2019. In spite of the progress, almost half (48%) don't know whether their organizations had been compromised.
"It's concerning to see that nearly half of this year's survey respondents don't know if they've been attacked when visibility and detection solutions are readily available to provide that awareness," said Nozomi Networks Co-founder and CPO Andrea Carcano. "Threats may be increasing in severity, but new technologies and frameworks for defeating them are available and the survey found that more organizations are proactively using them. Still, there's work to be done. We encourage others to adopt a post-breach mindset pre-breach and strengthen their security and operational resiliency before an attack."
