Industrial firms fail to adopt basic security measures against hackers

On Wednesday, US conglomerate Honeywell released new research into the state of security in the industrial sector.

Titled, “Putting Industrial Cyber Security at the Top of the CEO Agenda,” an in-depth poll of 130 industrial companies revealed that almost two-thirds of those surveyed — a total of 63 percent — admitted they do not monitor for suspicious behavior, and 45 percent do not even have a cybersecurity expert or manager in place.
