Industrial cyber threats are real – a special theme in 2021
Dedicated Network Partners and Cyberwatch Finland have joint forces to raise awareness over industrial cybersecurity in 2021. The cooperation intents to share timely and unbiased information over cyber threats and protection methods especially for critical communications decision makers and professionals working for utilities.
Building an industrial cybersecurity community
DNWP has during the recent years observed a clear call for discussion over cybersecurity especially from an industrial viewpoint. Members of the private network community are present in various industries such as power plants, oil & gas pipes, transportation such as railways, highways and airports as well as public security and safety field.
What is common in between all these service providers is that they are considered to serve the basic human needs. This caters the universal demand across the critical communications community to stay alert over cybersecurity topics and advance cybersecurity practices.
Technology drives the underlying cybersecurity themes in critical communications
An influencing theme for the industrial cybersecurity discussion in critical communications is the currently ongoing network technology upgrade from SDH (classic) towards the MPLS-TP (next generation) platforms that enable IP based services. This transformation marks a culmination point for the network security as the network design complexity multiplies. There are important decisions to be made when considering the shift e.g., related to connectivity and access to protect the communications stream from hazardous external factors.
DNWP – together with Cyberwatch Finland – will be sharing cybersecurity related special publications delivered to our customers and partners as well as in our public social media outlets at www.dnwpartners.com throughout 2021. The publications are true case studies, concrete reporting and discussions over industrial cybersecurity.
