  • Cyberattack risk for manufacturers outpaces other sectors

    Soundings Trade Only, 16 August 2018

    A 2018 spotlight report on manufacturing developed by Vectra shows that though some sectors like retail are more likely to experience reportable breaches involving personal data, manufacturing organizations outpace them in other areas of risk.

  • Industrial IoT escalates risk of global cyberattacks

    IndustryWeek, 15 August 2018

    The interconnectedness of Industry 4.0-driven operations, such as those that involve industrial control systems, along with the escalating deployment of industrial internet-of-things (IIoT) devices, has created a massive attack surface for cybercriminals and nation-state actors to exploit.

  • Manufacturing firms craft cyberdefense for connected machines

    WSJ Pro Cybersecurity, 14 August 2018

    “The manufacturing industry is putting everything online, and they’re doing it fast,” says Chris Morales, head of security analytics at Vectra. “Some are putting steel blast furnaces online, or robots and welding equipment. They’ve got the motivation to automate but security is not involved in a lot of the buying decisions.”

  • Tracking cybersecurity threats in manufacturing

    BankInfoSecurity, 14 August 2018

    "Someone somewhere across the world, can easily infiltrate these networks, sit there for a long time, propagate against machines that are interconnected and very chatty with each other, and get data that's already leaving the company," says Chris Morales, head of security analytics at Vectra.

  • Manufacturers have increased risk of cyberattacks

    Manufacturing Automation, 14 August 2018

    Without proper security and real-time analysis in place, IIoT technology may be ultimately detrimental to a manufacturer, because it provides a “flat” attack surface for cyber attackers to get in, and it can be difficult for standard security systems to detect the malicious activity.

  • Video: Live from Black Hat USA 2018

    Livestream, 14 August 2018

    Security Guy TV interviews Vectra CTO Oliver Tavakoli, who discusses how cyberattackers launch an attack using remote command-and-control techniques, and perform internal reconnaissance and lateral movement in search of critical assets to steal or damage.

  • Researchers: Cryptomining poses a security threat to universities

    News BTC, 14 August 2018

    Vectra noted that cryptojacking malware can quickly spread throughout an unprotected school network, via an innocent miner’s operations. Mining software can be a gateway for hackers to compromise a network, as nodes constantly communicate with other computers across the globe.

  • Report: Manufacturing industry is at risk of increased cyberattacks due to industrial IoT devices and Industry 4.0 initiatives

    VMblog, 14 August 2018

    Vectra announced that the manufacturing industry exhibits higher-than-normal rates of cyberattack-related reconnaissance and lateral movement activity. This is due to the rapid convergence of enterprise information technology and operational technology networks in manufacturing organizations.

  • The new miners: Wave of crypto mining at colleges, businesses raising hacking concerns

    CNBC, 14 August 2018

    "I think there are a lot of universities that don't know this is happening," says Mike Banic, vice president of marketing at Vectra. "I don't think that they would want it to happen either, considering it costs $4,700 to mine one bitcoin. That's about 10 percent of the annual tuition at a private university."

  • Manufacturing sector seeing increased hacker snooping

    ITP.net, 11 August 2018

    The manufacturing industry appears to be the next target for hackers, according to a report from Vectra. The AI-powered threat detection specialist said that the manufacturing industry exhibits higher-than-normal rates of cyberattack-related reconnaissance and lateral movement activity.

  • Report: IoT, Industry 4.0 raising cyberattack risks

    Industrial Equipment News, 9 August 2018

    Many factories connect IIoT devices to flat, unpartitioned networks that rely on communication with general computing devices and enterprise applications. The conversion from proprietary protocols to standard protocols makes it easier to infiltrate networks.

  • Manufacturing industry at greater risk of cyberattacks

    GamingTechGear, 9 August 2018

    Manufacturing businesses are seeing higher-than-normal rates of cyberattack-related reconnaissance and lateral movement activity. This is due to the convergence of IT with IoT devices and Industry 4.0 initiatives, according to a new report from AI-powered attack detection specialists Vectra.

  • Manufacturing industry is at risk of increased cyberattacks

    Digitalisation World, 9 August 2018

    As part of key findings in the new 2018 Spotlight Report on Manufacturing, Vectra revealed that attackers who evade perimeter security can easily spy, spread and steal, unhindered by insufficient internal access controls.

  • Manufacturers facing increased cyberattacks

    Enterprise Times, 9 August 2018

    The data revealed active cyberattacks that were not just seeking access but proliferating inside manufacturers networks. Cyberattacks begin by mapping the network infrastructure of a target. While mapping networks, the attackers are actively identifying IP assets and stealing them.

  • Reconnaissance, lateral movement soar in manufacturing industry

    SecurityWeek, 8 August 2018

    Vectra discovered a significant volume of malicious internal behavior, which suggests that adversaries are already inside the network. For example, Vectra noted that in many instances there was twice as much lateral movement as command-and-control traffic.
