The Cybersecurity Industrial Control Systems Services provides guidance on how to secure Industrial Control Systems, including Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, Distributed Control Systems (DCS), and other control system configurations such as Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), while addressing their unique performance, reliability, and safety requirements.
Our services provide an overview of ICS and typical system topologies, identifies typical threats and vulnerabilities to these systems, and provides recommended security countermeasures to mitigate the associated risks.
ICS implementation includes the following features:
Starting a cybersecurity initiative for industrial systems isn’t as daunting a task or as big an investment as it might appear at first. The trade-off in preventing the amount of possible damage makes it ridiculous for companies to not consider investing in cybersecurity.
Cybersecurity needs to be a plant-wide initiative. We implement it, through five phases:
Phase 1: Design and framework
Designing a cybersecurity management system is the most comprehensive phase and requires the most investment in time and effort from both our and customer side. In this task, we include identifying all systems and personnel linked to cybersecurity, defining their roles, defining their access and control rights, and building policies around these parameters to ensure safe operations.
Phase 2: Gap assessment
Our assessment phase primarily consists of reviewing the cybersecurity design and identifying potential vulnerabilities and risks depending on business impact. Identified gaps are addressed and updated in the design. Assessments are performed, using our experienced personnel and various tools that will sniff the network level packets and identify anomalous behavior and gaps in system hardening.
Phase 3: Implementation
This part is where we implement cybersecurity policies, procedures, and practices, ensuring that all checklists are marked. A key method of implementation is system hardening.
Phase 4: Audit
Auditing cybersecurity covers tasks like comprehensive penetration testing to ensure that the cybersecurity implementation is achieving desired results. Out specialized pentest & audit team usually tackle this job and help ensure solid cybersecurity. However, we can deliver training to internal cybersecurity audit team to perform all phases. That team can use its learning and expertise to audit other plants and facilities within the organization.
Phase 5: support and maintenance
To guarantee a determined level of compliance, it will be necessary to ensure the maintenance and support of the effort that was initially made. We create value in ensuring infrastructure management, control, and monitoring, in order to keep cybersecurity controls in all entire infrastructure.
