Cybersecurity is a rapidly changing battlefield that requires awareness, continuous vigilance, and a consolidated response from everyone involved. Superior technology, the right allies and information advantages on the latest cybersecurity developments are important keys to success
Because we know how important it is to stay up to date, we are happy to provide you with the newest cybersecurity insights researched independently by Gartner.
Companies and organizations are facing increasing challenges in the struggle to keep their IT and OT secure. Particularly operators of critical infrastructure such as power generation, water supply or telecommunication must ensure continuity of their business processes and production chains as they serve the basic needs of the population.
Managing critical infrastructure is becoming more complex. Platforms, systems, and applications are increasingly interconnected – unlocking new potential but also new vulnerabilities. If one domino were to fall in this system, it could trigger a massive chain reaction. With national security on stake, traditional security tools are no longer sufficient to protect critical infrastructure in this complex and fast changing environment.
In a 170-year legacy of building and securing critical infrastructure, Siemens has been facing similar challenges. That’s why Siemens Cybersecurity has been developing OT protection technologies to secure our internal plants and OT networks for several years. Our technologies and products are well proven by hundreds of installations in numerous IT and OT environments protecting them against cyberattacks and fulfilling regulatory requirements.
It’s time to act. “Demand for OT security products and services will increase over the next three to five years as a result of improved awareness, concerns about converging OT and IT, and increasing regulatory pressure” are among the predicts for 2022 mentioned by the following complementary Gartner® Report "Predicts 2022: Cyber-Physical Systems Security - Critical Infrastructure in Focus"
