The unprecedented technological progress in recent years brings important benefits, but also involves several cybersecurity risks.

Studies indicates that, by 2025, cyber-attacks will cost companies approximately $ 10.5 billion, it said.

This initiative, led by Corporación Alta Ley and supported by the Chilean Ministry of Mining, aims to generate and share cyber-intelligence information for early warning and response, and to promote a culture of cybersecurity in mining operations.

“As BHP we are enthusiastic about this initiative and, therefore, we want to contribute with our experience in the protection of assets and systems,” Ezequiel Fagetti, BHP Cybersecurity Manager Minerals Americas, said in a statement.

“Cybersecurity is vital for the proper functioning of the different production systems and, ultimately, for us to continue contributing to the country,” he said. “If we strengthen this aspect, we strengthen the mining industry as a whole, its value chain, and safeguard the benefits for everyone.”
