Nozomi Networks-Sponsored SANS Survey Finds Security Defenses are Getting Stronger as Cyber Threats to OT Environments Remain High
Nozomi Networks Inc., the leader in OT and IoT security, announced the SANS 2022 OT/ICS Cybersecurity Report finds ICS cybersecurity threats remain high as adversaries set their sights on control system components. In response, organizations have significantly matured their security postures since last year. In spite of the progress, more than a third (35%) don’t know whether their organizations had been compromised and attacks on engineering workstations doubled in the last 12 months.
The 2022 SANS ICS/OT survey received 332 responses representing a wide range of industry verticals from energy, chemical, critical manufacturing, and nuclear, to water management and several others. Of the 63 subcategories across these verticals, many respondents are sub-classified in electricity, oil and gas, equipment manufacturing, speciality chemicals, transportation equipment manufacturing, drinking water, and engineering services.
