Título: Environmental risks : cyber security and critical industries
Publicación: Exton : AXA XL, 2020Descripción física: 16 p.Serie: (XL Insurance)Notas: Sumario: Cyber security along with physical security is vital to critical industries such as: energy, transportation, telecommunications, financial services, energy production and transmission, public services/utilities, and chemical and manufacturing industries. Most businesses have some vulnerability to a cyber incident, but particularly if they rely on complex supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems. This paper examines the various types of cyber intrusions and attacks and how they can pose a significant pollution liability risk. Cyber crime can result in loss of control of critical equipment and warning systems and has the potential to cause damage to human health and the environment from catastrophic spills, waste discharges, and air emissions. These events can cause fires, explosions and hazardous material releases that result in bodily injury, property damage, environmental remediation expense, and significant legal liability claims. The paper concludes with guidance on best management practices, risk management controls, prevention steps, and essential elements of a cyber security program.Materia / lugar / evento: Ciberseguridad Riesgo tecnológico Riesgos emergentes Protección del medio ambiente Riesgos medioambientales Gerencia de riesgos Otros autores: AXA XL
