The advancement of new technologies and enhanced business processes have transformed both the transportation and logistics industries. From cyber-based control, navigation, tracking, and communications to storage, packaging, and delivery of goods. Those working within these industries are no strangers to innovation. But with this technological innovation comes more cyber threats. The U.S. Department of Transportation noted that the industry is becoming increasingly vulnerable.
According to Ponemon and IBM research, logistics and transportation are among the top five most targeted industries (even ahead of retail). We’ve seen mass transit, highway infrastructure, maritime, and aviation hit hard by online attacks in recent years.
No matter how big or how small you are, hackers see you as a target. The risk of credit card theft and data breaches for logistics and transportation are significant and can adversely impact your company’s stability and success.
