An insider breach targeting OT and IoT systems has the potential to shut down electrical grids, contaminate water supplies and otherwise destroy a nation’s infrastructure.
Seema Haji's picture
Technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR) and machine learning (ML) once seemed stranger than fiction, but are now playing a growing role in industrial environments.
Barak Perelman's picture
Since Building Management Systems (BMS) are integrated with and interconnected to both hardwired and cloud based solutions, as well as third party applications, their attack surface is large and getting larger.

By deploying robots with cybersecurity in mind we can ensure that they don’t run the danger of introducing the same negative effects into their environment.
Seema Haji's picture
Failing to implement the right security controls could open the door for attacks and disruption that threatens system availability and performance — the very reasons for leveraging the power of IoT in the first place.
Barak Perelman's picture
Passive network security monitoring has its value for identifying certain indicators of compromise (IoC), but does not detect and mitigate all attacks or incidents on ICS networks.
Jalal Bouhdada's picture
Protecting global transport networks should be a priority for operators, governments and cybersecurity professionals.
Seema Haji's picture
The risk created by the proliferation of industrial IoT (IIoT) is rising, thanks to the continued mismanagement of third-party involvement in sensitive industrial environments.
