Deception Technology for Industrial Cybersecurity

In case you missed it, GrayMatter launched deceptionGUARD during Transform.virtual.

This deception-as-a-service solution is designed to help protect industrial companies and critical infrastructure from the types of cyberattacks outlined in a new alert from the National Security and Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security agencies.

Learn More: You can read more about the NSA alert here. Also, the latest episode of the emPOWERUP Podcast is all about deception technology.

deceptionGUARD uses virtual decoys or sirens to lure cyberattacks to an innocuous target, known as a honeypot, where they can’t cause harm. The technology automatically analyzes the type, origin and method of attack, halts the intrusion and provides organizations with a plan to improve protections.

“You must have a cybersecurity strategy that’s resilient,” says Scott Christensen, GrayMatter’s Cybersecurity Practice Lead. “Sometimes the ability to withstand an intrusion is more valuable than outright prevention.”

You can learn more or schedule a briefing with GrayMatter’s team about deception technology here.

IndustryWeek Talks Digital Transformation with GE Digital CEO Pat Byrne

GE Digital CEO Pat Byrne

IndustryWeek caught up with GE Digital CEO Pat Byrne about his first year in the role, how companies are adapting to a world with COVID-19 and why ROI has to be hard-coded into any successful digital transformation strategy.

“While there could well be a five-year vision, companies need to be able to break that down into getting a strong business case,” Byrne said.

“Achieving that requires a critical combination of using lean and digital together. Lean allows you to get visibility into where there’s waste in the business process. It’s a systematic way of creating insight into where waste exists.”
