IMX 2019 Highlights Cybersecurity Challenges and Solutions

Professionals from all levels of the commercial marine transportation industry, from CEOs to deckhands, gathered in St. Louis last month for the Inland Marine Expo (IMX). IMX is the annual trade show for highlighting the latest equipment, services, trends and issues that are relevant to the transportation of goods along U.S. inland and intracoastal waterways. We at GDS were excited to be a part of IMX 2019.

Multiple Cellular Carriers + SD-WAN = Seamless Connectivity for Mobile Workers

Workers in the oil and gas industry often travel long distances to inspect and maintain pipelines and equipment. Tugboat and towboat operators are constantly moving up and down inland waterways. Construction management firms must send workers from job site to job site to oversee projects.

Email Security Threats Are More Prevalent and Dangerous than Ever

There’s a reason why more than 90 percent of targeted security threats originate in email. Human beings are the weakest link in the security chain. If an email gateway is like a brick wall that surrounds the network and only lets in a small percentage of threats, a human being is often like a turnstile that only requires a gentle push to gain entry.

What Are the Biggest Cyber Security Threats in 2019?

The cyber-threat landscape is always changing and evolving. Hackers are notoriously dynamic, constantly improving their tactics and tools to bypass the latest security countermeasures. Organizations that want to minimize their exposure to cyber threats need to be be well-informed and up to date.

Incident Response Plays a Key Role in Effective Cybersecurity

Experts say that a security breach is virtually inevitable — that it’s a matter of “when” not “if.” However, rapid detection and response to a security incident can greatly reduce its impact, as GDS proved recently when it stopped a ransomware attack.
