An integrated approach to combat cyber risk

Securing industrial operations in mining

Despite cyber-threats rapidly growing across industries, the mining industry remained unaffected and believed it could operate under the radar of cyber criminals. The rationale behind this thinking was “Why would hackers target a mining company when they could attack a consumer organization that moves financial data?”

Now, with the industry moving to the next stage of evolution - rapidly integrating new technologies into the operational environment - also referred as “intelligent mining”, it interests cyber criminals as much as a retail industry. How can miners make their operational processes secure, vigilant, and resilient?

This report shares the key lessons that would enable mining companies to upgrade the security of their industrial control systems (ICS). It provides a good understanding of the cyber threats disrupting the mining value chain and explores the approach companies can take to sustainably address cyber.
