Nearly 2/3 of Industrial Companies Lack Security MonitoringNew Honeywell survey shows more than half of industrial sector organizations have suffered cyberattacks.A new survey by LNS Research on behalf of Honeywell shows that industrial sector networks are still playing catch-up in cybersecurity.
While more than half of the 130 decision-makers from industrial organizations in the survey say they work in a facility that has suffered a breach, just 37% of the respondents say their organizations monitor networks for suspicious activity and traffic.
Nearly half, 45%, say they don’t have an enterprise leader for cybersecurity, and one-fifth are not employing risk assessments on a regular basis.
“Decision-makers are more aware of threats and some progress has been made to address them, but this report reinforces that cybersecurity fundamentals haven’t been adopted by a significant portion of the industrial community,” Jeff Zindel, vice president and general manager of Honeywell Industrial Cyber Security said in a statement.
