The Importance of a Secured Backup System in Manufacturing

A Platform For Collaboration

OpenGov Asia is pleased to invite you to our exclusive Manufacturing Tech Day aimed at imparting knowledge on how manufacturing organisations can accelerate cybersecurity and recovery strategies to mitigate all cyber threats.

Accelerating security strategies to ensure rapid recovery and data restoration to mitigate cybersecurity risk

Manufacturing companies must be aware of the evolution of cybersecurity and understand the threats that exist today. This will facilitate the safety of systems, intellectual property and data. Proper safety guards in place at a manufacturing company offers protection against massive losses.

Manufacturing has risen from the eighth to the second most targeted industry by cyber attackers, trailing only finance and insurance. This represents a 300% increase in a single year, according to the 2021 Global Threat Intelligence Report (GTIR).

Colonial Pipeline, the United States’ largest pipeline system for refined oil products, paid a reported US$ 5 million ransom to hackers in 2021 after an attack on its IT network forced it to shut down its entire pipeline, causing major disruptions to gas delivery.

An estimated 62% of Malaysian organisations have experienced an increase in cyber data breaches during a workplace shift, with 25% or more alerts on cyber threats since the pandemic began. The Malaysian Employers Federation was hit by a ransomware attack involving encrypted accounting data in July 2021 and its servers were down for three days. Months later, a hacker targeted Penang-based web hosting company, disrupting its Windows virtual private server and Windows hosting services, demanding US$ 900,000 in cryptocurrency as ransom.

Ransomware does far more than merely infect and corrupt files and devices. When ransomware gains access to a device or database, typically by masquerading as a suspicious file or link, it encrypts critical data and makes it inaccessible to anyone who does not have the correct key. The hacker will demand an exorbitant ransom for the key and failure to pay within the time limit usually results in the data being destroyed or made public.

This can have disastrous consequences, such as a serious breach for manufacturing organisations, where operations will be halted and trade secrets will be exposed, resulting in a significant loss.

Given the rise in cyber threats, manufacturing leaders must evaluate areas to reduce risk.


Are you making enough investments in cybersecurity?

While governing bodies such as the EU have begun to invest more in outlining cybersecurity standards, there is concern that there isn’t enough focus on the manufacturing industry and frameworks aren’t always relevant.


Is there a clear response strategy in place to mitigate an attack?

Without a proper response strategy, there is a risk that the business will take longer to recover, which will intensify any damage, particularly financial damage.


Can organisations afford to turn a blind eye to the threat?

Attacks can range from minor production disruption to severe machinery damage. Given that a large multinational pharmaceutical company allegedly lost $310 million as a result of a breach, a similar attack could be crippling to other organisations.

Accelerating the deployment of security tools with dual defence strategies to ensure reliable backup and recovery will ensure that no cyber threat will disrupt the manufacturing supply chain and risks are mitigated, avoiding heavy data and financial losses. This improved strategy is the best line of defence against hackers who attempt to force a ransom.

OpenGov Asia is pleased to invite you to our exclusive Manufacturing Tech Day aimed at imparting knowledge on how manufacturing organisations can accelerate cybersecurity and recovery strategies to mitigate all cyber threats.

This session serves as a great peer-to-peer learning platform to gain insights and practical solutions that enables manufacturing organisations to maximise their data capability through comprehensive, centralised and efficient data protection, more cost-effective and secure data-driven process.
