Cyber-Physical Protection at Machine Speed

Cyber-attacks are designed to cause harm. Harm is not just in the form of production interruptions and equipment damage. There are also environmental impacts, health and safety issues and financial charges as well as long-term reputational damage to your brand. Regarding monetary losses, historical data shows roughly one million dollars per incident and rising quickly. Some industries, such as Pharma, now set aside ten times that amount in the event of a successful attack.


There is a better way forward. Speed of response is key. We can learn from mission-critical organizations, such as the military, where the target response time is advised as less than two seconds.


In Industry, the norm has been to allow the IT organization to assess the criticality of an event, then notify the OT organization, and then the OT organization acts. You would be lucky if this process happens in two days, much less two seconds, while the losses continue to add up.


In reality, cyber-attacks occur at machine speed so your response needs to be at machine speed. Please join us to learn how to accomplish the two-second cyber response time.


We are looking forward to welcoming you to this webinar!
