Manufacturing Cyber Security: Protecting Manufacturing against Cyber Security Threats
Manufacturing organizations know they must keep production lines running. Any impact to business continuity with production downtime impacts the ability to deliver a product or service.
Manufacturers are heavily targeted by ransomware
Manufacturers are seen as more likely to pay ransoms to prevent production downtime. This perception, combined with their overall cyber security posture relative to other sectors, continues to make them prime targets.
How Mandiant helps address this challenge:
With Mandiant, manufacturing organizations can better prepare for the convergence of IT and OT systems with improved threat awareness and expanded knowledge of attackers. Help maintain business continuity by hunting for threats and boost the ability to monitor, detect and respond threats to enable strong recovery strategies.
Keep production running
To maintain business continuity and secure your network infrastructure and supply chain from disruption or degradation, you can engage a Cyber Defense Assessment, Red Team or Penetration Test to evaluate your team and cyber security process. You can work with designated Mandiant threat intelligence experts to build a full cyber security program and pair that expertise with Mandiant Advantage Security Validation to give you confidence in your readiness to withstand adversaries.
Protect intellectual property
You can understand the threat actors that target your intellectual property with Mandiant Advantage Threat Intelligence.
