Cybersecurity in Logistics: 2FA Case Study

Cybersecurity in logistics is getting an overhaul. GateKeeper Enterprise, the innovative proximity-based two-factor authentication solution, announced the release of its 2FA case study with Schuster Co., a transportation firm based in Le Mars, Iowa. After deploying the patented GateKeeper authentication solution, Schuster experienced an increase in overall user productivity and a decrease in password login friction.

2FA Challenges

Cyber insurance for logistics companies can also be less expensive when 2FA is deployed across the company.

Enhanced Cybersecurity in Logistics

The logistics industry plays a critical role in the global economy by ensuring the efficient movement of goods and products. However, with the increasing reliance on digital technologies, the industry has become vulnerable to cyber threats that can disrupt operations, compromise sensitive data, and harm reputation. In this article, we will discuss the importance of cybersecurity in the logistics industry and how GateKeeper can help IT managers strengthen their organization’s security posture.

The Cybersecurity Landscape in the Logistics Industry

The logistics industry has become a prime target for cyber attacks due to its complex supply chains, large volumes of data, and interconnected systems. According to a report by the Ponemon Institute, the average cost of a data breach in the transportation industry is $6.91 million, with the majority of the cost attributed to business disruption and lost productivity. In addition, the report also found that the time to identify and contain a breach is longer than in other industries, further exacerbating the damage.

The Need for a Comprehensive Cybersecurity Solution

To mitigate the risk of cyber threats, logistics companies need a comprehensive cybersecurity solution that addresses multiple layers of defense. GateKeeper is a leading provider of cybersecurity solutions that can help logistics companies achieve a robust security posture. GateKeeper offers a range of features that can help IT managers strengthen their organization’s security posture, including:

  1. Access Control: GateKeeper allows IT managers to control access to critical systems and data by implementing multi-factor authentication, role-based access controls, and granular permissions. This helps to prevent unauthorized access to sensitive information and reduces the risk of data breaches.
  2. Network Security: GateKeeper provides a secure mechanism to automatically lock computers when workers leave. For example, a driver can leave the truck without worry and the laptop will lock automatically.
  3. Compliance Management: GateKeeper helps logistics companies comply with regulatory requirements such as GDPR, HIPAA, and PCI-DSS. This ensures that the company is not only protecting its own data, but also the data of its customers and partners.

Conclusion

The logistics industry is facing an increasing number of cyber threats, which can have a significant impact on business operations and reputation. To protect against these threats, logistics companies need a comprehensive cybersecurity solution that includes access control, network security, and compliance management. GateKeeper is a leading provider of cybersecurity solutions that can help IT managers strengthen their organization’s security posture. By implementing GateKeeper, logistics companies can reduce the risk of data breaches, comply with regulatory requirements, and protect their customers and partners.
