Critical Infrastructure entities could feel the aftermath of a pandemic much like any other business. It is at this time that governments also need to be extremely vigilant about cybersecurity threats to critical infrastructure.

Context

Beyond the curve:

“Unlike non-traditional security threats like natural disasters, technological failures, and other disruptions, planning for a pandemic requires a different set of skills as well as certain continuity assumptions. A pandemic usually diffuses geographically and could appear in a flutter that can persist for several months.” The Synergia Foundation  has been working on cyber threats to critical infrastructure for more than a decade. The insights provided by the Foundation is currently referenced by governments all over the world.
