Cyber attacks on facilities and building infrastructures can have serious physical consequences to public safety, property and the business. Facilities such as airports, casinos, hotels, shopping centres, and transport stations rely on SCADA and industrial control systems for operations and BMS which are essential to a safe public environment. Waterfall Unidirectional Security Gateway products provide the strongest possible protections for OT systems, enabling safe IT/OT integration while physically preventing online and remote attacks on facilities’ operations networks.
The energy industry has become the second most prone to cyber attacks with nearly three-quarters of U.S. oil & gas companies experiencing at least one cyber incident annually. Remote cyber attacks on offshore oil and gas platforms can result in severe consequences to human and environmental safety in the form of ruptures, explosions, fires, releases, and spills.
