HSE Data Loss A Blow To Critical Infrastructure Security

AEP Networks : 21 February, 2012  (Technical Article)
AEP Networks comments on the loss of power station testing results from unencrypted USB storage device highlighting need for greater security awareness for those involved in high security installations
HSE Data Loss A Blow To Critical Infrastructure Security
After the revelation that a member of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) lost a USB stick containing details of a stress test on a nuclear power station, Mark Darvill, CTO at security specialist AEP Networks commented, “Data in high risk industries such as this should always be encrypted if there’s any chance it could leave the building. What may seem mundane to some is a treasure trove of potentially damaging information in the wrong hands.

“Critical infrastructure providers are already a prime target both for the common cyber-criminal and for rogue foreign states. There would be nothing to stop an opportunist coming into contact with this stick from selling this material to the highest bidder  Any critical infrastructure provider or contractor working for them needs to ensure it has the highest levels of security deployed, to stop cyber-attacks at the first hurdle.”

AEP Networks provides the highest grade security technologies to government, military and enterprise organisations to support their mission critical applications and networks.
