Algorithms and Artificial Intelligence
Unthinkable a few years ago and now it is in your pocket every day, Artificial Intelligence. The technology where the computer can make its calculations by itself. Not only on the known recognition of objects. But also the real-time analysis of large amounts of data can now simply be performed. Whether this happens on messages that are new, or on messages that suddenly deviate from frequency, content or sender.
By sharing data, processes can be optimized even further. Think of the processing speed of your machines and how your supplier of the raw materials adjusts its supply accordingly. But of course there are also risks. There is enough process data within your organization that you do not want to reach the competitors.
Controlling and monitoring
Your system generates events. Some events can occur that are out of the ordinary. Possibly the beginning of a future disruption that can still be resolved in time, but it can also be worse. An employee with too little knowledge creates a data breach. Or causes a system to stop working properly. A good relationship between these events and an acceptable false-positive rate should ensure that you have your system under control at all times.
We hear it every day on the radio and television, change your password, use smart characters. The criminals are getting smarter and every day, they find new ways to deceive us. We assume zero trust in combination with auditability. In short, this means, even if someone comes in unexpectedly, the system will continue to function safely at all times. Especially in the OT field it is important to ensure a realtime behaviour instead of shutting down the process.
aXite believes that by correctly applying norms and standards within your industry, your system can operate safely. By using these guidelines, every manager can show what his responsibility is in the field of cybersecurity and how he has implemented and regularly tested the measures.
