The Criminals are on Top of Their Game, are You? – IT and Physical Security for Mining Firms and Their Complexes

Your company is expanding.

You don’t have time to worry about security. – Your concern is production. But you already know that without security precautions and protocols, your production is at risk.

That’s why you’re reading our website.

You’re looking for an IT support partner that can handle both IT security and physical – IT integrated – security systems.

You’ve come to the right place.

The Xyber Solutions team works with mining firms across the globe to help them secure IT infrastructure and the physical operations surrounding surface and underground mines.

What Threatens a Mining Operation?

If you run a modern mining operation, nearly every piece of equipment you have is connected to the internet to provide real-time feedback to the main office for productivity/profitability analytics.

Here’s the problem.

If it’s connected to the internet, it can fall prey to a virus or be hacked.

It’s just that simple.

We don’t want that to happen to you.

But you know that hackers aren’t the only place from which a threat to your mine could come.

What about disgruntled workers using their computer access to cause trouble?

What about commercial espionage?

What about a simple power surge that takes down your server and all the stored data?

Any of these threats can bring your operations to a standstill.

But there is one aspect we haven’t touched on yet, isn’t there?

That’s right.

When your computers, communications, or equipment goes down, you have legitimate concerns about the safety of your employees in the mine complex. They rely on all these tools to work in a secure environment.

What Does Xyber Solutions Do to Keep Your Mining IT and Physical Plant Secure?

Here’s the deal.

If you don’t keep improving your IT and physical security solutions, you’re losing ground to the criminals.


Because the criminals work each day to find ways around IT security protocols and connive to find avenues to thwart physical security. The older your systems and solutions are, the more likely it is that the bad guys know how to breach them.

If your head office, mining complexes, transportation, and processing facilities are going to remain secure, these security elements must be in place and continuously updated and monitored.
