Do employees appreciate the value of assets?
Employees often understand the value of equipment, but can be less knowledgeable about the value of information and intellectual property.
Training your employees is essential to ensure they understand the value of assets to competitors, criminals, and others. They need to know how to protect the physical and digital aspects of your operations, from controlling access to secure areas, to recognizing and reporting phishing emails.
Does every component have appropriate protection?
The interconnected nature of processes means that a single compromised component can bring multiple aspects of your operations to a standstill.
As your digitalization journey integrates operations and technology, assign them appropriate levels of protection. Critical components will require greater security, with procedures and education to help employees maintain their integrity.
Is technology exposing your assets to risk?
Technology must be as secure as possible against cyberattacks, but also robust in its ability to protect operational data and other information as it travels around your organization.
Technology health checks can identify vulnerabilities, such as the need for updates and patches, and situations where employee behavior is undermining resilience. We can recommend security solutions that protect your assets, such as firewalls, and data diodes for one-way flow of information.
