TARGETED RANSOMWARE IN MANUFACTURING
In many manufacturing organizations, the distinction between business-critical and manufacturing critical systems has blurred. This is a cybersecurity problem – efficient plants need connectivity between business and manufacturing systems, and all connections that let data move let attacks move as well. Dr. Jesus Molina takes us back to basics: classify systems, identify data flows and control those data flows thoroughly enough to provide essential assurances of cybersecurity.
