Industrial Cybersecurity is a growing market with different spokespersons to the ones found in the corporate environment and with a long road ahead which will demand services, products, technologies and initiatives, where, nowadays, there are necessities, leveraged by legal compliance as well as the requirements for protecting industrial processes. These necessities are being translated in business opportunities for vendors, engineers, integrators and consultant firms and are creating chances ofinformation and intelligence sharing for end users.
The lack of well positioned actors in the market makes end users to require big enhancements on their situational awareness and their knowledge on industrial cybersecurity in order to know which are the successful solutions that are being deployed in more advanced countries, as well as get in contact with other end users with similar necessities, and, why not, with vendors that could provide the growing requirements in the scope of industrial processes.
The current situation of the market in Spain and Latin-America requires a clear positioning of these vendors by providing presence, knowledge, references and by the specific knowledge of these environments. The position of end-users in this market, in the following year, is going to be a key issue in the relation with their customers and commercial environment which are starting to be consciuous about the cybersecurity risks they are facing.
The Center, as the first and only initiative in Latin-America focused on boosting and improving Industrial Cybersecurity, means a great oportunity for every actor to take positions and show a good image towards the market about the protection of the industrial infrastructures they are related to.
