EY's Cyber Risks in Mining and Metals 2018 Report reveals cyber threats are growing at an exponential rate globally, with more than half of energy and resources participants in EY’s latest Global Information Security Survey having experienced a significant cybersecurity incident in the last year.
These threats are evolving and escalating at an especially alarming rate for asset-intensive industries such as mining and metals. One of the catalysts is the increased connectivity between IT and less-mature OT environments is widening the cyber attack surface. And the cost of these attacks is climbing steeply.
