Industrial IT/ Cyber Security
Plant-IQ has partnered with Kenexis to provide the industry’s most comprehensive offering of Industrial IT services.
Cyber security, industrial networking, change management, safety faults and failures, government regulatory efforts such as 6 CFR 27 CFATS and NERC CIP-002–CIP-009, and other concerns are driving an increased awareness that asset owners need to protect their industrial processes from cyber security threats.
We help our clients to secure their industrial control networks by assisting in the design, verification and ongoing integrity programs. This assistance includes risk-based establishment of performance targets, security requirements specification, design verification, test planning and assistance, and continuing performance assessment and auditing.
The Approach to Industrial Security
Utilize Industry Standards and Regulatory Requirements (ISA-84, ISA-99, ISA-18, ISA-95, etc)
Team members must be experienced in automation, safety, networking, and security
Leverage the concept of a “Security Assurancer Level (SAL)” – a streamlined model that ranks possible process impacts from quality, stoppage, safety, regulatory, and other concerns
and balances the capabilities of the entire system to prevent and mitigate these impacts. Validate the implementation against security and safety requirements.
