Edgard Capdevielle, CEO at Nozomi Networks:
“No-one wants to believe that an employee would act maliciously but trust isn’t a strong enough security defense. Mistakes can happen too and when it comes to ICS and critical infrastructure, security measures must not be built on blind faith.Technological advances now enable real-time monitoring and early detection of potential attacks to industrial operations, offering new weapons to combat escalating cyberthreats – regardless of who is behind them, or whether they’re motivated by malice or mistake.”
