I’m enjoying writing for IFSEC Global – a business publication aimed at those in the security industry, which combines both physical and cybersecurity with fire safety.
In this piece – my third article for the Informa publication – I look at the risk posed to our critical national infrastructure following the recent attack on the Oldsmar water plant in Flordia. Here a cyber attacker was able to adjust water levels remotely to dangerously high acidic levels.
Could the same happen in the UK? In a word: yes. Thanks to the rise of remote working (partly as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic) and the increasing prevalence of IoT technology within Industry 4.0, the risks are now greater than ever before.
In this article I interview several leading industry experts about the threat our critical national infrastructure faces and their comments are very concerning.
