Millions of people have been working from home for the past year to support social distancing guidelines during the pandemic. In industrial control system environments (ICS), companies restricted physical access to only those employees that were essential in running operations, and their safety was of paramount concern. Many of us experienced shortages at grocery stores when COVID outbreaks impacted factory employees, resulting in plant shutdowns. As a result, not only did third-party vendors find themselves needing to connect remotely to plant floors, but so did employees needing to work on those industrial control systems. While many countries have now loosened their restrictions, there are indications that working remotely could be long-term or even permanent for some. Secure remote access to ICS environments has yielded improved productivity and quicker response times. That raises some important questions. Is your Industrial Control System network adequately protected against security threats related to remote access? How can you best enable field employees and third-party vendors to connect remotely to your plant floor? Access management was identified as one of the top threats to manufacturer safety in 2020. This threat remains serious as more breaches are happening via remote access than ever before. Ease of accessibility to your network for your employees and vendors is necessary, but it also opens you up to more risk. Join our conversation to learn about the permanent secure remote access options CISOs and technology leaders have deployed over the past year to ensure access to their network is protected and safe—not only for today, but for the long-term.
