Security for connected and autonomous vehicles gets a lot of attention, but companies need to focus on fundamentals – the industrial systems used for manufacturing automobiles and their increasingly high-tech components. Bringing “intelligent industrial things” online without effective cybersecurity puts an entire company at risk. The IBM Institute for Business Value Benchmarking Program worked with Oxford Economics to understand how organizations:
- Identify and protect themselves against the cybersecurity risks posed by deploying the Internet of Things (IoT) in their operations/ factories;
- Detect, respond to, and recover from IoT-related cyber-security incidents;
- Measure the effectiveness of their risk and incident management capabilities.
We surveyed 700 executives in 20 countries across 18 industries in the industrial and energy and utilities sectors, who:
- Have deployed or are in the process of deploying the IoT in their factories/ operations;
- Have a point of view on security;
- Are using an Industrial Control System (ICS) and/or Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system in their operations.
