Want to extract more value from your security posture? Let’s dig in

The services you provide in the mining and metals industry are critical – and you need to keep them secure against evolving cyber-physical threats-without locking everyone out.

Don’t let your organization become a gold mine for attackers.

You’re up against some tough challenges. Consider the following:

  • Gartner named the push for closing security siloes as one of the top 9 security trends last year due to an uptick in incidents, threats and vulnerability disclosures outside of traditional enterprise IT systems.

 

  • The rise of intelligent mining, or the integration of robotics, automation, and the Internet of Things (IoT) into mine sites and processing plants, has created more complex cyber-physical systems with a higher number of threat vectors and potential gaps.

 

  • Mining organizations like yours must constantly defend against the theft of high-value, precious minerals, sabotage attempts by political activists, insider threats from blocklisted contractors, intrusions by armed militia and more.
  • New regulations and company policies require stricter governance and event logging for all digital and physical workplace access- as well as the ability to conduct contact tracing and safely store sensitive information like vaccination records.

 

  • Compliance can cramp your style. According to theEY Global Information Security Survey 2020, only 7% of organizations would describe cybersecurity as enabling innovation; most chose terms such as “compliance-driven”and “risk averse.
  • M&A transactions can create a complex web of disparate access control systems that heighten both security risks and cultural barriers to adopting new technologies.
 
  • There’s still enormous uncovered value in these systems – but how do you connect them to capture it?

What if strengthening your security posture also meant unlocking doors for your company’s productivity and financial results?
