Industrial Cybersecurity – managing risks of ransomware by Carlos Russell

During the last few years international threat actors have been consistently successful in attacking global and regional industrial companies’ technology infrastructure to get unauthorized access into their networks, compromising their valuable data assets and, therefore, resulting in reputational damage, personal data protection fines, data theft and/or paying ransom for recovering their data. This session provides an overview of the risk landscape, the challenges faced by organizations and proposes insights and recommendations as to where to focus investment and resources into managing these risks in an industrial context.
