The modern enterprise is dependent upon connectivity at every level. Every business initiative, whether driven by sales, marketing, manufacturing, finance, R&D or HR, is dependent upon reliable network availability and continuity. Disrupting that continuity is what Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are all about.
Primary internet connections fail for a variety of reasons: severe weather, downed poles and lines or simply heavier than usual network congestion. Business continuity solutions provide businesses with back-up internet access via a cellular network when primary Wide Area Network (WAN) connections fail or are over-loaded. These solutions enable businesses to:
Maintain seamless, uninterrupted access to the internet
Process credit card transactions
Access to important information stored online
This paper will provide an overview of business continuity solutions, examples of in-use scenarios and a path to adoption in an easy to understand and digestible way. Download now.
Businesses need to plan for unforeseen events that can disrupt productivity, impair the customer experience, and possibly even threaten a business’s existence. A disruption every business needs to plan for is any event that destroys valuable data, inhibits access to data, or causes downtime of core applications.
Consider the staggering amount of information your company stores electronically. What if an unforeseen event destroyed all financial records, client contacts, and application data? You wouldn’t be able to send customers accurate invoices. Your marketing efforts might be undermined. You would lack key metrics for measuring quality, profitability, and more. The losses could be staggering.
In every aspect of life, it’s smart to plan for unexpected events. That’s especially true for two plans every business must have: a disaster recovery plan and a business continuity plan.

Companies that manufacture industrial equipment find themselves in a unique place among manufacturers:
• Their products can range from small components to mammoth machines for mines or mills.
• They rarely order large production runs and may be called on to create a process that results in an order of one.
• Their markets impose challenging constraints.
Customers want more choices, more options, more extras, and more features. And they want the order to be fulfilled sooner. The competitive environment is forcing model cycles to shrink, pressuring manufacturers to accelerate processes that are unable to keep pace. Dassault Systèmes DELMIA has assembled an industry-specific set of roles for industrial equipment manufacturers that brings these challenges under control.

Which questions have you overlooked and why do the answers matter?
According to Gartner, “OT SRM (security and risk management) leaders must ask the right questions during the technology procurement process to achieve long-term success in their security investments.” Further, Gartner states, “Translating IT security practices and copying IT security technology will not result in a secure operational technology (OT) environment.”
By reading “7 Questions SRM Leaders Aren't Asking OT Security Providers,” you’ll learn which questions to ask, why they matter, and be armed with follow-up guidance to make smarter decisions. Questions covered include:
