In an increasingly interconnected world, the security of critical infrastructure, particularly utilities, is of paramount importance. As technology advances, so do the threats that target these vital systems.

The growing threat of cyber attacks

Highly sophisticated adversaries are consistently seeking to leverage any vulnerabilities in critical infrastructure. Power stations and other utilities remain a prime target for physical incursions but the threat runs deeper. It’s clear that action must be taken to defend utilities against both physical and cyber attacks.

One critical issue is vulnerability posed by outdated security systems. It’s alarming to note that 7 out of 10 security cameras have outdated firmware, leaving organizations susceptible to potential security breaches. This emphasizes the importance of monitoring security systems for cyber vulnerabilities and ensuring compliance.
