Cybersecurity is one of the most crucial workplace safety considerations today. As businesses implement more digital technologies, cyberattacks become more likely and potentially damaging. This trend is particularly concerning for critical infrastructure.
The recent Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack revealed how vulnerable critical infrastructure is to cyberthreats. While this incident cost nearly $5 million in ransom payments to mitigate, it was still relatively tame compared to what a similar attack could do. As cybercrime continues to grow, businesses and government agencies alike must secure this infrastructure.
