ARC Advisory Group’s New Studies Explore Industrial Cybersecurity

Date posted: January 7, 2016

Since it is well known that cybersecurity is a major concern of industrial organizations today, it’s little surprise that ARC Advisory Group would want to canvass B2B market participants on this topic.  ARC Advisory Group has launched two industrial cybersecurity research initiatives to help companies understand and address these hurdles. One focuses on the protection of plant systems. The other explores cybersecurity issues constraining broader adoption of IIoT.

According to ARC, “A successful cyber attack on a plant could result in significant damage to a company’s financial, safety, and compliance performance.  Lack of clear cybersecurity strategies for new technology like the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are hampering efforts to improve key metrics like asset reliability and operational effectiveness.”

Who should participate in the survey and why?

These are important issues for every industrial organization.  If you are involved in industrial cybersecurity we [ARC] hope that you will participate. By completing one or both of these surveys you will be helping to ensure that your industry is secure and remains a difficult target for would be attackers. As an additional incentive, ARC will provide everyone who completes a survey with a free summary report that they can use to evaluate their own cybersecurity concerns.

Here are links to the studies:
