There’s no shortage of vulnerabilities for threat actors to exploit within the transport industry with BeyondTrust's report showing that 64 percent of employees download data onto external memory drives, with 63 percent admitting to sharing administrator passwords.
With certain state-sponsored hacking groups’ increasingly focusing on critical industries, it’s paramount that organisations in these sectors deploy solutions that help prevent these attacks. Integrating regular and up to date security training to educate employees will ensure they are aware of the most recent tactics used to target systems and what can be done to prevent them.
In addition, implementing solutions to ensure that employees only have access to areas of the network and devices that their role requires can mitigate these types of attacks. This sounds simple, but in reality, it’s an often-overlooked area.
