Canada Introduces Bill C-26: Setting Cybersecurity Standards to Safeguard Critical Infrastructure
Adjusting to a New Environment
As designated operators adjust to the new regulatory environment, they need an experienced partner by their side. SWOT24TM, Operational Technology (OT) Cybersecurity by ABS Group, has a comprehensive portfolio of services to assess, design, and help implement OT cybersecurity programs to assist companies in complying with CCSPA. Furthermore, as new reporting mandates reveal the true extent of the threat against Canada’s OT systems, SWOT24 has the capacity to go beyond basic compliance, offering cybersecurity strategies designed to help guide organizations through attack monitoring, detection, response and recovery.
Basic cyber hygiene can go a long way toward reducing industrial cyber risk. To mitigate risk and shrink attack surfaces, companies should:
- Take industrial cyber seriously. Industrial cybersecurity should be a business imperative. It can be as important to your growth as any other strategic investment. Make sure to have the program, investment, and capabilities in place to minimize your OT cyber risk.
- Learn what to protect. Make sure to have a robust and automated asset inventory and management system. This will let companies know what they need to protect and which components are connected.
- Manage vulnerabilities. Once a business knows what to protect, it can begin to assess the holes in its defenses, prioritize those holes, and close them.
- Consider cyber from the beginning. Cybersecurity should begin in the concept phase. Companies should make sure security-by-design and supply chain risk management are a core part of their new construction and expansion.
- Maintain visibility and control. Companies should invest in robust monitoring and response programs. Without these programs, cybersecurity teams might as well be flying blind.
- Find the right partner. Industrial cyber is a challenge. It takes domain expertise and a solution built specifically for OT environments. Our team of OT cybersecurity experts can help you design the program that better fits your needs.
Good cybersecurity hygiene leads to preventative actions.
