The Truth About Cybersecurity - 5

CYBERSECURITY

AN INDUSTRY-WIDE CALL TO ACTION

Cybersecurity is everyone's business. A cyberattack can have far-reaching implications
for a specific company and its customers, but it can also impact the environment, the
economy, society and even the world. That's why, no matter the organization or the
industry, cybersecurity must be a priority for everyone. Every industrial manufacturer,
ICS vendor, third-party provider, regulatory agency and standards body shares responsibility to address cybersecurity. We must put aside competition and work together to
combat our mutual enemy: cybersecurity threats.
Control- and safety-systems vendors have the responsibility to ensure their technologies
are developed, designed and delivered in compliance with the industry's most stringent
standards. Safety and security certifications are essential to meet rigorous requirements
for safety, cybersecurity, risk reduction and continuous operation. Product security starts
with understanding the design of a product and then follows a secure development lifecycle
methodology. Vendors need to factor in security in their development facilities and throughout the supply chain for the development of their products, which extends to the implementation of systems at customer sites.
End users and vendors need to collaborate to ensure the technology provided to the
operation is as cybersecure as possible and that the cybersecurity features embedded
into those OT solutions are activated and monitored. End users and providers need to work
together to ensure technology is implemented correctly and that cybersecurity is part of an
ongoing lifecycle.
Researchers have found that organizational leaders are often insufficiently aware of
cybersecurity threats and needs. This is surprising, given the continued proliferation of
cyberthreats and their far-reaching effects. While organizations have increasingly elevated
cybersecurity to the executive level by adding the role of Chief Information Security Officer,
many organizations remain unprepared to counter cyber threats and respond to cyberattacks. To thrive in today's digital economy and mitigate the internal risks of cyberattack:
ƒƒGet everyone in your company involved.
ƒƒBe proactive, be prepared.
ƒƒBe vigilant.
ƒƒEngage in a cybersecurity community.
ƒƒContribute, share knowledge and best practices.
ƒƒWork closely with your vendors to ensure best practices are followed.
ƒƒEducate yourself and others.

Adoption of safety and riskmanagement best practices
lead to better operational
performance across safety,
reliability, and efficiency
dimensions:
7% higher overall equipment
effectiveness (OEE) with a
lifecycle approach to risk
management.
50% lower incident rates when
safety systems designed to
both mitigate risk and improve
performance.
25% lower incident rates
when IIoT technology used to
holistically manage safety and
operational performance.
