SAN FRANCISCO, October 28, 2022 — Nozomi Networks Inc., the leader in OT and IoT security, today announced the SANS 2022 OT/ICS Cybersecurity Report finds ICS cybersecurity threats remain high as adversaries set their sights on control system components. In response, organizations have significantly matured their security postures since last year. In spite of the progress, more than a third (35%) don’t know whether their organizations had been compromised and attacks on engineering workstations doubled in the last 12 months.
“In the last year, Nozomi Networks researchers and the ICS cybersecurity community have witnessed attacks like Incontroller move beyond traditional targets on enterprise networks, to directly targeting OT,” said Nozomi Networks Co-founder and CPO Andrea Carcano. “While threat actors are honing their ICS skills, the specialized technologies and frameworks for a solid defense are available. The survey found that more organizations are proactively using them. Still, there’s work to be done. We encourage others to take steps now to minimize risk and maximize resilience.”
