Some of the most challenging challenges facing cybersecurity today are information loss, fraud and theft, especially for those companies that are part of critical infrastructure and whose data has become their main asset.

The National Computer Emergency Response Team (, for its acronym in English) in Argentina, dependent on the Ministry of Public Innovation, appeared a total of 591 computer incidents last year, a figure that exceeded 261% to that of 2020, when 226 incidents were registered.

Against this background, the recent version of the Automation Fair, the most interesting global industrial automation event organized by Rockwell Automation and which took place a few days ago in the United States, analyzed in detail different aspects related to cybersecurity, its implications and challenges.

“Attackers are becoming more sophisticated and organizations are struggling to hire the right professionals, but with cybersecurity shortages, those skills are in short supply, expensive, and hard to retain,” said Rachael Conrad, vice president and general manager of Global Services. is Rockwell Automation.

Statistically, the expert added, there are more than a million open cybersecurity jobs in the United States alone to help mitigate shortage issues and standardize cybersecurity practices. Also participating in the meeting were Mike Rogers, Vice President of Strategic Alliances at CrowdStrike, a leading provider of modern security technology, who stated that typical threat vectors today include external adversaries trying to attack the plan, compromised VPNs, compromised USB, threats internal attacks “and phishing attacks that penetrate the IT network and pivot in OTT environments,” he said.

He added, we have developed a cloud-native platform called “Falcon” that helps protect, detect, prevent file-based and fileless attacks in IT and OT environments. threats in real time and added that remote monitoring and visibility and security policies protect against known and unknown attacks. “This is where CrowdStrike technology can help.

Efforts, according to the consensus of the exhibitors, should be oriented towards facing the challenges of the massive and extensive use of information technologies, in addition to carrying out preventive analyzes focused on protecting critical digital infrastructure and the daily use of networks by of the communities. The conclusion reached during the meeting was the great importance of keeping networks secure and the risk of cybersecurity as low as reasonably possible.
