Organizations are working tirelessly to avoid being like the Titanic. You certainly see it. And as we work with clients, we see it first hand, every single day, all across the globe.

Cybersecurity firms SANS ICS and iSight Partners have attributed the blackout to Russian hacking group Sandworm and its malicious software, BlackEnergy 3. This might have been the first use of cyber as a weapon with kinetic effects during an ongoing conflict.Water treatment system attack: Verizon reported that hackers breached a water utility and manipulated systems responsible for water treatment and flow control. The hackers altered settings related to water flow and the amount of chemicals used to treat the water. Investigators said they discovered four separate connections over a 60-day period. Verizon pointed out that the attackers likely had little knowledge of how the flow control system worked and that the attack could have had far more serious consequences if hackers had more time and more knowledge of the targeted industrial control systems (ICS).Attack on Japanese nuclear center: Computer hackers infiltrated a server installed at a Japanese facility thatoversees the handling of plutonium and other nuclear materials. No data atthe facility was compromised, but hackers used the server as a relay pointin a cyber-attack on some other system.

Copyright 2016 Accenture All rights reserved.#From script: My hypothesis is that two things are happening:Theres been huge growth in advisory services around compliance and global risk and compliance (GRC). Weve also experienced a tremendous increase in a whole series of point solutions and technologies. Yet, neither one nor the other, nor the two together, have solved the problem. Pure advisory services dont do it, a proliferation of point solutions that is coming at us faster than we can even evaluate them doesnt do it.

Copyright 2016 Accenture All rights reserved.#From script: So how can we take control of this security crisis that is controlling us?We have two choices. Either we collaborate to harden our defenses and innovate or we stay stuck in the perfect storm created by the emerging technologies and our attackers ability to use them against us. Riding out the storm is clearly NOT an option. Add strengthen our industries here so it previews all three points below.

1Build industry-specific resilience
