Engineering Workstations Used as Initial Access Vector in Many ICS/OT Attacks: Survey


The 2022 OT/ICS Cybersecurity Report (PDF) is based on a survey of 332 individuals representing organizations of all sizes across every continent.

Less than 11% of respondents said they had experienced a cyber intrusion in the last year, down from 15% in 2021, and 24% were confident that their systems were not breached, up from 12% in 2021. Thirty-five percent did not know whether their organization’s systems had been compromised, which is still a significant improvement from the 48% in the previous year.

More than half of respondents said they were confident that they could detect an intrusion within 24 hours and over two-thirds believe they can move from detection to containment within 6-24 hours.
