Highlights the significance of Cybersecurity Monitoring at ICS Level 0. Regulation compliance targeted at 1,600 Israeli entities handling hazardous materials
In any given state or country, there are thousands of manufacturing plants and facilities which hold and use hazardous materials as part of their production processes. Failures in the production, storage or transportation systems of these plants may result in severe damage to public health and the environment.
