Logistics and transport are becoming digital - and need more IT security

Transport and logistics industry appears on the radar of hackers

The transport and logistics industry is increasingly taking advantage of the benefits of digitization. This has its advantages, but of course, the points of attack are also increasing. For example, ransomware attacks have hit shipping or railway companies on a large scale in recent years, so that rail operations in Germany, exemplary, were severely disrupted for several days. In recent years, the industry has automated formerly manually operated systems, digitized analog documents and used advanced analysis to meet the needs of its customers. The industry is particularly attractive for cyber attacks due to its international networking with other industries. Logistics companies are often connected to production facilities, so a successful attack can cause several dominoes to fall. In addition, there is fragmentation in the logistics sector in particular: in addition to the big players, smaller companies are always involved along the supply chain.

Your Challanges

In the future, customers, carriers, stakeholders and forwarders in the logistics and transport industry will increasingly demand that the confidentiality of product and transport data, the reliability of transport and compliance with safety regulations be observed. A well thought-out security strategy and proactive risk management are the chance to gain decisive competitive advantages.

Benefits of our solutions

  • Develop a cyber risk management based on proactivity. This must also take into account personnel and organizational failures.
  • Next-generation firewalls and corresponding analysis systems, such as deep packet inspection, are a must.
  • A next-generation web application firewall must also protect web-based applications such as SAP or Outlook Exchange, but also CRM systems.
  • Encrypt data traffic, especially large amounts of data, between the various stations along the supply chain.
  • Protect your voice and data communications at the IP level with an effective VPN solution that can be deployed globally and 24/7.
  • Prevent ransomware attacks by using a highly secure browser solution. Internet access and malicious links in emails are special inroads for cyber attacks.
