Kaspersky Lab just announced the Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity solution in Malaysia. Called KICS for short, it is a combination of Kaspersky’s services, technologies and intelligence designed to protect critical infrastructure and industrial facilities.
Cybersecurity of critical infrastructure and industrial facilities is of great importance, because of their importance to the stability and economy of the country. Malaysia, for example, is highly dependent on its industrial sector which contributes almost 37% of its GDP, and employs 36% of its labour force (in 2012).
Kaspersky Lab’s Andrey Suvorov and Vikram Kalkat flew in to talk to us about industrial cybersecurity and how Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity can help mitigate, if not reduce or eliminate, the risks of cyber attacks of critical infrastructure and facilities.
The Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity (KICS) Solution Revealed
Cyber-attacks on industrial control systems are on the rise. In 2016, 67% of information and operational technology managers say that their security risks are at a critical level. In this video, Vikram Kalkat (Senior Key Account Manager, KICS) explains the industrial cybersecurity landscape.
The introduction of Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity (KICS) cannot come at a better time. The high degree of automation and use of information technologies in modern industrial facilities make them especially vulnerable to cyber attacks. Andrey Suvorov, Head of Critical Infrastructure Protection Business Development, Kaspersky Lab, explains how KICS can minimise the risks and effects of a cyber-attack on industrial control systems.
Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity considers all these unique requirements and protects the ICS network at the layers most vulnerable to cyber-attacks – ICS/SCADA servers, HMI panels, engineering workstations, PLCs and more – securing them from cyber-threats without affecting operational continuity and consistency of the technological process.
