Off-highway vehicles are now loaded with an ever-growing array of software-driven, interconnected, semi-autonomous devices, such as smart sensors, variable speed fan drives and monitors. Telematic is more prevalent and supply chains are becoming increasingly complex.

Here’s a nightmare scenario: hackers gain access to a healthcare service network, affecting 40 hospitals and health facilities, locking staff out of their computers, denying access to patient medical records, appointment schedules, and email.
Like all sectors of critical infrastructure, the oil and gas industry has emerged as a top target for cyberattack, yet most companies are not doing nearly enough to mitigate the risks. Demand for business insight and device monitoring has led many oil and gas companies to merge OT (Operational Technology), such as their control systems, with enterprise IT systems.
Cloud computing is now a primary driver of the world’s digital economy. Governments, large corporations and small businesses are increasingly implementing cloud-based infrastructures and solutions to store their sensitive data and manage their operations.
An average hospital room can house as many as 20 medical devices, and almost all of them will be networked – either wired or wirelessly.
With the many reported attacks on utilities, SCADA systems, and operational technology, I’d have to say that the level of cybersecurity awareness – especially within IIoT and ICS – is increasing.
Have you heard the one about the fish tank in the casino? A smart device in the lobby aquarium of a North American casino had been remotely monitoring temperature, salinity, and automatic feedings.
RunSafe’s Alkemist prevents scaling attacks, fileless attacks, and compromised supply chain attacks. Since it cuts down whole attack surfaces, it is well positioned to stop zero-days that depend on them.
The problem with traditional cybersecurity solutions is that they focus more on detecting symptoms rather than on addressing the underlying causes.
