Bitsight identifies exposed industrial control systems in France

Bitsight has identified nearly 100,000 exposed industrial control systems (ICS) around the world, with France ranking as the third-largest number of exposed organisations in Europe, with with heavy concentrations of exposed systems in the Paris metropolitan area.

The exposed industrial control systems used in this sector could potentially control critical infrastructure systems that, if attacked, could lead to a catastrophic event. Therefore, it is critical that organizations promptly assess exposure and engage in remediation efforts.

We recommend that you read the full report to learn more about:

  • The most common exposed ICS protocols across sectors.
  • France sectors with the greatest degree of exposure, plus a global geographic breakdown.
  • Potential consequences, and recommendations for security leaders, ICS manufacturers, and government  policymakers.
