While all industries are at risk of being targeted by threat actors of any kind, the chemical sector is at an increased risk due to the sensitive information they store related to dangerous materials, in addition to the storage of the dangerous materials themselves. Consequently, a successful breach could result in disaster, as both the information and chemicals could put lives at risk. With organizations moving towards adopting internet-enabled technology (SCADA, ICS, etc.) to improve business processes, the employees that handle these technologies and the information they contain have become an enticing target for hackers. Organizations within the chemical sector must consider the human threat vector when developing a cybersecurity strategy to reduce the likelihood and impact of a successful breach.
