    As cybersecurity threats evolve, we must adapt the way to fight them. The typical countermeasures are no longer adequate, given that advanced persistent threats (APTs) are the most imminent attacks that we face today.

    This IBM® Redguide™ publication explains why industrial installations are an attractive target and why it is so important to protect them in a new way. To help you better understand what you might be facing, we explain how attacks work, who the potential attackers are, what they want to achieve, and how they work to achieve it. We give you insights into a world that seems like science fiction but is today’s reality and a reality that threatens your organization. We also show you how to fight back and explain how IBM can help shield your organization from harm.

    Our goal is for you to understand what the current threat landscape looks like and what you can do to protect your assets.
