As connectivity to the outside world grows, security is becoming one of the most important topics in industrial IT and Operational Technology (OT), i.e. the hardware and software used in the production area. Industrial cybersecurity developed into a board-level topic during 2017.

But what do user companies really want? What are their priorities, and what concerns and challenges do they face? What external and internal factors are impacting industrial cybersecurity? What strategies and measures are being employed, now and in the future?

The present trend report "The State of Industrial Cybersecurity 2018" seeks to answer all these questions. The report was commissioned by Kaspersky Lab and analyzes the status quo and future developments worldwide with regard to industrial cybersecurity.

The study can be downloaded from the Kaspersky website.
