Employee Error Behind Half of Industrial Network Incidents
A new report by Kaspersky shows that employee mistakes are the leading cause of industrial cybersecurity incidents. Last year, 52% of such incidents were the result of human error. Despite growing cyber threats, only 57% of industrial firms have a dedicated cybersecurity budget for operational technology (OT) / industrial control systems (ICS).
When it comes to the impact of industrial cybersecurity incidents, firms are most concerned about reputational damage (87%), injury or death (84%) and environmental damage (63%).
