We’re excited to tell you that Nozomi Networks and IBM Security have teamed up to address the exploding demand for effective, integrated IT/OT cyber security services and solutions. Read on to see how industrial organizations around the world now get easy access to deep OT network visibility and continuous threat detection.
Today’s business leaders are expected to manage risk for their entire organization – from enterprise IT systems to OT environments. With IT and OT systems becoming more connected, and cyberattacks on industry rising, managing risk means shifting focus to industrial cyber security.
Two of the most important measures to take are bringing together IT and OT teams and investing in new technology that improves the visibility and cyber resiliency of industrial networks.
In the last decade market and cost pressures have driven significant technological advances in automation and industrial connectivity across all aspects of petroleum extraction, pipeline transport and refining. While technological advances are delivering business benefits, systems are now exposed to more cyber risks than ever before.
Yet, according to a 2017 survey by the Ponemon Institute, the deployment of cyber security measures in the oil and gas industry isn’t keeping pace with the growth of digitalization in operations.
One way to overcome the ICS cyber security gap is to utilize next generation technology that leverages machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) to deal with system complexity and deliver immediate benefits. Let’s take a look at two examples of how a passive ICS anomaly detection and monitoring solution secures pipeline networks.
