The Monaco Cyber Security Agency held a meeting this afternoon to raise awareness of industrial network security issues and risks. The French National Cyber Security Agency (ANSSI), Siemens, Schneider Electric and Stormshield all took part in the meeting.
Industrial networks operate red lights, variable message signs, car park barriers, air conditioning and ventilation management systems, and much more... These systems are highly automated and interconnected with conventional IT systems and, indeed, the Internet, meaning that they are exposed to the same threats, with potentially more serious consequences.
The meeting was attended by Government departments which use such networks, industrial network installers/integrators, public service concession holders, SMEG, SMEaux, Monaco Telecom, healthcare institutions, and other organisations.
