Reduce Exposure to Identity-Based Cyber-Attacks
While media coverage of cyber-attacks primarily focuses on data breaches at major brands such as Target, Sony, and Equifax, the nation's critical infrastructure is equally if not more at risk from advanced persistent threats (APTs). An increasing number of nation-state actors are targeting electric grids, gas pipelines, and nuclear power plants. This can have wide-reaching impacts on the economy and civic stability. Trusted by top energy firms and utilities, Centrify Privileged Access Management solutions helps by addressing the #1 cause of such breaches — privileged access abuse.
Protecting the Nation’s Critical Infrastructure While Staying Compliant
According to a SANS Institute research study, 69 percent of energy providers and utilities consider the threat to industrial control systems (ICS) to be high or severe. Energy and utility firms face tremendous pressure when it comes to securing privileged access to their IT infrastructure.
Cyber-attacks are not just costly, but more importantly, they can impact the nation’s economy and cost lives. Energy and utility firms must abide by stringent regulatory mandates, complicating their day-to-day operations even further and putting an additional burden on an already overwhelmed IT staff.
To add to these challenges, the global shortage of trained security professionals hits energy and utility firms especially hard, as they often can’t compete with the salaries paid in other industries.
