Digital Transformation and Its Impact on Cybersecurity

Posted by Justin Rowe on 6/1/17 1:10 PM

It seems like the last few years, organizations small and large have been undertaking some sort of digital transformation initiative.  This can be in the form of improving the customer experience at a physical shopping location using interactive technology or designing of new processes to optimize monitoring and performance of tasks through a mobile application.  Organizational customers, whether internal or external, can reap the benefits of using these new digital technologies to increase effectiveness and/or efficiency towards tasks being performed to produce a desired result.  Designing technology features and supporting processes that customers demand, comes with the potential of increasing risk across areas of the business that are unexpected.

The industry ranks number two behind utility companies for certain types of cyber-attacks and according to General Keith Alexander, retired Director of the National Security Agency, “41% of malicious attacks reported to the DHS were focused on the energy sector making it a prime target of such attacks.” Attacks can include targeting proprietary data, production disruptions and theft of employee and customer sensitive data.
