While attacks on critical infrastructure have rapidly risen in the last eight years, these often go undetected for months at a time.

For instance, attacks on the energy sector can take on average six months to detect, according to a report by FireEye. Part of the reason, it says, is that officials receive too many alerts and can waste millions chasing the wrong ones.

It suggests five steps to secure critical infrastructure and IOT:

  1. Identify weaknesses across your entire network
  2. Work with a dedicated team of experts
  3. Test your systems with real-world attack scenarios
  4. Gather intelligence on hackers’ tactics and motivations
  5. Detect anomalous patterns to track threats early
