Industrial attacks are on the rise as threat actors are no longer merely interested in raiding your bank account, while some have set their sights far higher. Cyberattackers targeting industrial control systems (ICS) have demonstrated their potential to disrupt core systems in recent years. From the takedown of the power grid in Ukraine which left residents of Kiev without electricity for an hour to the successful compromise of a dam in New York three years ago, the targeting of country services can have serious, detrimental effects. Attacks against industrial systems, including power grids, utilities, and emergency response platforms may lead to energy and fuel shortages, the collapse of basic facilities including water supplies and more.
