for Your Industry
Agriculture today employs a variety of embedded and connected technologies to generate data used to enhance agricultural and livestock management. As adoption of precision agriculture technology has increased, vulnerabilities and cyber threat issues have emerged. An attacker could exploit precision agriculture vulnerabilities to access sensitive data, steal resources, and destroy equipment.
Banking & Financial Services
Financial institutions are leading targets of cyber attacks. Banks are where the money is, and for cybercriminals, attacking banks offers multiple avenues for profit through extortion, theft, and fraud, while nation-states and hacktivists also target the financial sector for political and ideological leverage. Regulators are taking notice, and implementing new controls for cyber risk to address the growing threat to the banks they supervise.
Energy & Utilities
Addressing cyber risks in the energy sector is critical not only to energy security, but is also vital for a resilient state and economy. Energy companies have seen a massive increase in the number of successful cyber-attacks over the past years. The critical role that the energy sector plays in the functioning of a modern economy, with its increasing interconnection and digitisation, with the emergence of smart grids and smart devices, make the energy sector a highly attractive target for cyber-attacks aimed at disrupting operations. In a worst case scenario these attacks can result in infrastructure shut down, triggering economic and financial disruptions or even loss of life and massive environmental damage.
As a target for security threats, the public sector is unique, experiencing more cyber incidents than any other industry. US federal, state and local government agencies need to improve key aspects of their digital defenses against this threat landscape.
Healthcare cybersecurity is a growing concern. The last few years have seen hacking and IT security incidents steadily rise and many healthcare organizations have struggled to defend their network perimeter and keep cybercriminals at bay. Healthcare providers now have to secure more connected medical devices than ever before and there has been a proliferation of IoT devices in the healthcare industry. The attack surface is growing and cybercriminals are developing more sophisticated tools and techniques to attack healthcare organizations, gain access to data and hold data and networks to ransom.
Venture Capital Firms and Investments
Venture capital firms have an investment they need to protect and their investment needs to showcased their security posture to their customers. Too often the financing isn't focused towards the underlying platform's risks. Addressing these risks upfront reduce the costs later on for both the VC and the business.
