Industrial Cyber has released their 2023 Buyer’s Guide to Industrial Cybersecurity Technology, Solutions & Services. 

This large and comprehensive document delivers a thorough State of the Industrial Cybersecurity Market for 2023, as well as listings of the most significant and innovative vendors across a range of technologies in the market. The report highlights both technology trends and organizational trends, as well as recent changes in the landscape of global guidelines and regulation, such as the new CISA Cross-sector Performance Goals for Industrial Cybersecurity (CPGs). Unsurprisingly, many of the themes and technologies discussed emphasize the principles of zero trust. 

Industrial Cybersecurity Highlights: Zero Trust, Cyber-physical Systems Protection, Secure Remote Access, and more

Technologies that are well understood in the IT space are being reimagined to secure the combination of modern and legacy assets that support functions critical to the function of our society.
