Waterfall Security, CNA Hardy and THB partner to create global industrial cyber proposition
THB, CNA Hardy and leading cybersecurity specialist Waterfall Security Solutions have entered into a partnership to provide a new cyber security protection package for industrial businesses globally.
“This new cyber insurance partnership is a global precedent on many levels. First, it documents enough concern around increasing cyberattacks on industrial facilities, a clear sign for potential high profits from financial institutions. Secondly, it demonstrates the highest level of trust possible from two Lloyd’s of London companies, CNA/Hardy and THB, in our Unidirectional Gateway technology. That is a huge statement for Waterfall, and for the certainty of using Unidirectional Gateways as the best defense to prevent cyberattacks from entering industrial control systems,” Lior Frenkel, CEO at Waterfall Security told Help Net Security.
