Security incidents have doubled in the past 12 months.

Industrial Products findings

What is the state of information security in the industrial products sector?

Here’s what we learned from our 671 respondents:

  • Industrial products companies detect more security incidents. Industrial products respondents detected 101% more security incidents in the past 12 months, perhaps an indication of today’s elevated threat environment. It is troubling that the number of respondents who do not know the number of incidents continues to rise.

  • Many companies have not implemented technologies and processes that could provide insight into today’s risks. Security safeguards that monitor data and assets are less likely to be in place than traditional safeguards, according to industrial products respondents. Yet these tools can provide on-going intelligence into ecosystem vulnerabilities and dynamic threats.
