Securing Operational Technology from Cyber Extortion

The Impact of Cyber-Extortion on OT

Whilst commonly referred to as Ransomware, we define “Cyber Extortion” (Cy-X) as a form of computer crime in which the security of a digital asset (Confidentiality, Integrity, or Availability) is compromised and exploited in a threat of some form to extort payment.

In today’s digital society protection against cyber extortion, ransomware, and other malware is an absolute necessity.

This document will walk you through the key findings concerning ransomware attacks on OT environments, and provide actionable recommendations on how to protect against these threats.
