As an industrial company, you want greater insight into your operational data. You also need to share this useful information across your various production lines and with decision makers who previously couldn’t access it. Data sharing and volume is becoming increasingly important, cloud computing use is on the rise and connectivity across systems is intensifying.
These new practices are now standard in your organization; they’re designed to ensure better cohesion among your teams and to benefit from data analysis so you can remain competitive and innovative. But with these new capabilities comes new risks. This transformation means that your industrial control systems and supply chain management software are facing increased cybersecurity challenges and are making your processes more complex. So, adaptability becomes the watchword.
The importance of people in your cybersecurity strategy
Too often overlooked, people are a key factor when integrating cybersecurity into new or existing technologies and practices. Implementing a new system to mitigate all risks in one fell swoop is not a viable long-term solution. All members of your team must commit to following approved work methods and sharing the responsibility.
That’s why you need to work on your teams’ methods, which have generally been ingrained for years, so they develop new protection reflexes, thereby leaving no potential cybersecurity gaps.
