Making Cybersecurity Training a Priority

By Taeil Goh, OPSWAT |

All critical infrastructure segments are at risk for cyberattacks, but the unique integration of the chemical manufacturing sector into the global supply chain makes it an especially ripe target Defined by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), critical infrastructure (CI) sectors are industries that are deemed so vital that their “incapacitation or destruction” would have debilitating effects on the country. We understand that critical infrastructure powers our homes, cleans the water we drink and provides the systems to communicate with family and friends, but, in reality, all critical infrastructure sectors are so interwoven that crippling just one sector could have debilitating effects that ripple across all sectors (Figure 1). FIGURE 1. Critical infrastructure sectors are intrinsically linked through a global supply chain that depends on the raw materials manufactured by the CPI. This interconnectivity increases the reach of potential cyberattacks[/caption] For example, the chemical process industries (CPI) provide core raw materials to the energy, manufacturing and healthcare sectors; the energy sector fuels the government, defense and manufacturing sectors; while the information technology (IT) and communications…
