Impact of cyber-attacks on the critical infrastructure of companies
Since January 2022, in India, the education/research sector continued to remain the most impacted sector with an average of 4057 attacks per organization registering an increase of 77% from pre-COVID days i.e., January 2020. With the sudden introduction of remote working models being deployed across organizations, the need for cybersecurity is imminent and has widened. It is important that the organization focuses on its cyber security posture. At Check Point, we recommend our customers re-evaluate their Cybersecurity posture & strategy while evaluating and selecting tools that leverage a unified architecture across their digital landscape. A unified Cybersecurity architecture providing a minimum of Gen V security, incorporating prevention as the leading strategy and not just detection, would help secure their infrastructure for today’s threats.
To ensure protection
Modern organizations need to recalibrate their cyber security approach around three main elements i.e., securing their corporate networks and data centers, securing cloud environments, and lastly, securing employee devices– wherever they are. Achieving complete protection across the expanded attack surface requires security solutions that deliver complete security against Gen V, zero-day attacks, solutions that are easy to deploy and manage, and eliminate the patchwork of the best-of-breed solution, and high TCO with integration and interoperability. Besides the tools, it is also important to have the right governance of security controls and user education, as part of the overall approach, with the approach of security-based around the prevention first approach, gold standard management, and consolidated solutions.
Managing critical events and emergency incidents
Today’s attacks have become very sophisticated, happening at multiple points of the digital infrastructure almost simultaneously and at scale. A single-pane-of-glass view into the infrastructure is a definitive need today, such as what CheckPoint offers. With the right cybersecurity solutions in place, ongoing monitoring for threats cannot be undervalued. Organizations should develop adequate capabilities to monitor, understand, and act on potential threats. For businesses that cannot invest in their own Security Operations Centers (SOCs), validated tech partners (MSSPs) may be leveraged. Also, user organizations can tap into ‘Incident Response Teams’ from OEMs to assist in case of emergencies during attacks. Last but not least, continuous security monitoring, assessments coupled with a clear runbook on incident-handling, are a must.
The solutions to protect the infrastructure
With the industry’s highest catch rate of known and unknown malware, the fastest threat emulation, and the ‘Gold Standard’ of management systems, Check Point Software provides the most comprehensive SCADA and ICS security solutions for organizations with critical infrastructure. From a product perspective, Check Point Software has categorized over 80 products and technologies into three primary categories: Check Point Harmony, CloudGuard, and Quantum which are controlled by Check Point Infinity-Vision, the industry's leading unified security management solution.
