In recent years, we have seen a rise in the sophistication and quantity of cyber attacks on OT infrastructure. OT is particularly vulnerable as threats from that past that required a physical presence through a USB file transfer (or the like) are now using the power of the combine cyber/physical environments to attack OT equipment. Cybercrime such as Ransomware is becoming more like APT attacks. Advanced, persistent, and targeted in nature. Attackers are spending more time on the weaponization phase of the ATT&CK framework pre-ATT&CK. Many attacks go undetected until ransomware encrypts their systems or the threat actors sell the data on underground markets.
In this brief, we will discuss about the most prevalent cyber attacks targeting OT systems in 2022 and show you how to protect your critical infrastructure - securing both modern and legacy equipment – without impacting the safety and uptime goals of the business.
