CATCH A CYBERCRIMINAL IN THE ACT!
Hackers are focusing more and more on industrial facilities. Using a network switch as a honeypot is an excellent way to spot a cyberattack at an early enough stage to avoid damage. When a change management system is specially designed to work with automation devices, then its monitoring functions can be used to automatically detect changes to the configuration of a switch and raise the alert.
The more we connect automated systems to the Internet, the more the door is opened to cyberattacks. There are many sources of risk, from external devices to a company's own employees. Intelligent application of change management can be used to provide not only backups, but also the ability to detect unauthorized changes. Don't miss out on this valuable contribution to your cybersecurity strategy.
See the article "How to use cyberattacks to increase security" (recently published in the German-language specialist magazine "atp") for details of how to fully exploit backups as a cybersecurity instrument and how to make disaster recovery quick and easy.
Immediately detecting and checking changes to industrial control systems is an important tool in helping to provide early warning of cyberattacks. A network switch makes an excellent honeypot. Besides being attractive to hackers and useful in the early detection of cyberattacks, it can also help with spotting the preparations for an attack. versiondog monitors the switch for unauthorized changes and automatically raises the alarm if it finds any.
