Solutions

A comprehensive range for cybersecurity

Our broad portfolio combines leading industry technologies and tools with expert know-how

Siemens Energy, along with its technology partner Darktrace, brings real-time anomaly detection to the industrial OT environment. Siemens Energy Plant Security Monitoring service provides the continuous visibility required to make smarter, faster decisions.

The Siemens Energy Vulnerability Management solution provides a non-intrusive way to discover, visualize, and monitor sensitive systems continuously. We provide technical support for designing, deploying, and enabling Tenable's unique software on the control system network to provide a complete picture across the network.

Plant managers often lack an up-to-date, comprehensive asset inventory of all connected assets. Siemens Energy, in conjunction with PAS™, helps our customers meet this challenge with automated Cyber Asset Management. This includes configuration change management and advice on potential cybersecurity threats.

What are the challenges you face in building a cyber defense program?

Do you fear that connectivity makes you more not less vulnerable to cyber attacks?

connectivity

Many energy companies keep their networks unconnected because they believe this makes them cyber secure.

This misguided strategy will fall victim to more successful attacks, from inside and outside.

Connectivity gives you visibility which provides insight.

Do you lack understanding of what assets to protect?

assets

Many companies do not know what assets and devices exist on their OT networks.

This limits their understanding of where their infrastructure is most vulnerable.

Do you have a shortage of in-house OT cyber expertise?

shortage

Most energy companies have focused on building up their IT cyber capabilities. But these cannot be simply deployed into the OT environment because of differences in the systems, data, devices, and critical dependencies.

Because of this inattention to OT, cybersecurity experts who can secure complex, aging, and interdependent infra-structure are hard to find.

Do you have older legacy systems with exposures and vulnerabilities that are difficult to protect?

difficult

OT systems are older than IT systems.

OT equipment, which can last decades, is often developed with proprietary systems that have exposures and vulnerabilities difficult to protect.

Are your security monitoring and response capabilities adequate?

adequate

Even if a company detects a potential intrusion into its OT cybersecurity environment, it may lack the plans or capabilities to respond effectively.

Do you need a multi-vendor cyber solution?

adequate

Cyber solutions must apply across multiple vendors to provide a single, seamless cyber program.

  

 

If you say “yes” to one or more of the questions above, you are not alone. For energy companies, the probability of a cyber attack is nearly 100%

 

Overcoming the fear of connectivity is essential because the benefits of digitalization are too great. Organizations must focus on agility and resiliency so they can respond when – not if – they are attacked.
