Critical infrastructure is on red alert across the world as the severity of attacks increases. A panel of cybersecurity experts described how the past two years have changed the cybersecurity landscape forever, making protecting critical infrastructure the number one goal for governments. Attacks referenced included the SolarWinds attack in early 2020, which demonstrated how an attack on one system could go on to affect thousands of systems down the chain. Another was the Colonial Pipeline attack in May 2021, the first major attack that directly affected normal people’s lives through increased prices and panic to find critical fuel. The panel warned that these attacks proved that IT disruptions now directly affect operational technology and industrial control systems – and that critical infrastructure everywhere should be ready to protect itself.
