Cyber Security in Industrial Automation

It’s important that industrial automation and control systems (IACS) used in manufacturing and process automation are implemented within all external facets of an organization. With this data transfer, however, also comes the increased risk of security threats.

It’s true that manufacturers need adequate protection against possible risks during product development and integration. It’s also true that system integrators need secure IT infrastructures and service processes.  TUV Rheinland OpenSky can provide the comprehensive assessments and certification services needed for your IACS and components, all while analyzing your defense in depth strategy to achieve compliance with safety and cybersecurity standards.

Management and Automation Technology: Technical Inspection Audit/Certificate

IT solutions for management and automation technology are evolving. With this constant change, risks can occur during the integration of new product solutions. Dynamic solutions require complex protection with unique implementations. There is no one-size-fits-all solution.

The experts at TUV Rheinland OpenSky can determine the specific needs of your automation systems to ensure IT security. Our experts can help you carry out technical and organizational assessments in the relevant areas. Based upon our findings, we then work with you to identify which security measures need to be implemented.

Managed Security Services for OT Environment

IT configurations are no simple tasks these days. Configurations are increasingly complex because organizations must have a well-engineered security management solution in place. TUV Rheinland OpenSky can administer and support your IT security infrastructure in a few ways. We can design services to fit within your current infrastructure, or we can take over all aspects of your security operation for active monitoring. Either way, you can be assured your IT and data security needs are met.

Penetration Testing and Analysis for OT Environment

Professional hackers can and will take every opportunity to penetrate any organization through vulnerabilities in their network, IT system, applications or any mobile devices. This information is then manipulated to steal business and/or consumer information. As made evident in recent events, no company is too large or too small for cyber attacks. Do you think you know your organization’s weak points or vulnerabilities in your system? Internal and external penetration tests and IT security analysis may prove you wrong.

Managed Log Collection

The volume of logs in a modern digital enterprise is massive and grows continuously. Yet, when centralized into a scalable data analytics platform, the real-time visibility into this data can provide meaningful insights into behaviors and activities to effectively detect threats. Centralized log management and monitoring can also satisfy many security compliance requirements. TUV Rheinland OpenSky works with companies to determine the technology and data to include in the centralized log management service. We then provide guidance to create or update the organization’s enterprise log management policy, as well as lead practices for technology-specific logging. Our security experts design a data collection architecture that provides an affordable solution to log all of your security data, both for analytics and retention.
