Industrial Cyber Security

Greater protection
for critical systems

Enabling Industry to build and maintain cyber resilience for the connected operational enterprise of tomorrow.

As technology continues to evolve at an unprecedented pace many businesses are embracing these developments to help enhance their operations in order to deliver greater efficiency, optimise their assets and improve safety and sustainability. However, these enhancements are bringing with them a raft of security challenges.

The Challenge

IT/OT Convergence

This transition from closed to open systems has generated a slew of new security risks that need to be addressed. There is also uncertainty as to where the responsibility lies for Cyber where technologies and systems transcend the IT and OT landscape.

Evolution of threat landscape

The threat landscape is evolving, becoming more sophisticated and doing so at a faster pace than many organisations can keep up with. According to the annual IBM X-Force® Threat Intelligence Index Operational technology (OT) attacks surged 2,000% year-over-year.

Failure destroys brand reputation

The cyber threat and possible impact it can have on critical infrastructure and operations has placed an even greater board level focus on OT Security. Failure to manage or mitigate such threats is well understood to significantly impact on reputation as well as shareholder value.

Increasing Pressure

Industrial businesses are being pressured from multiple angles to take advantage of these new technologies whilst maintaining Cyber resilience. For companies managing these OT environments this is resulting in a number of concerns and challenges.

Bridging the gap between technology
- a holistic approach

There is no single product, technology, or methodology that can fully secure OT environments. A multi-faceted, holistic approach is required to address the varying (and increasing number of) threats.

Following a security framework can help guide organisations into such a holistic approach.

Building on decades of experience supporting critical infrastructure, our services and solutions are closely aligned to the NIST framework, often seen as the gold standard for preventive security measures.

This framework aligns to our recommended approach to optimise and maintain security practices in keeping businesses safe. However, no matter what regulation, compliance, or industry-standard you adhere to, our services can be aligned to in accordance.

We commonly help businesses align to:

  • ISO27001
  • CAF
  • NIS-D
  • OOG86
  • IEC 62443

Our comprehensive portfolio adds value to any stage of the OT security process - wherever you are in your journey - from risk assessments and training, to advanced real-time vulnerability management and service recovery.

What’s more, we can work with you whatever the size or scale, whether delivering standalone consultancy; embedded as part of a larger support contract; or delivering a full end-to-end managed service.


Trusted independent adviser

As threats targeting critical infrastructure increase, choosing the right adviser and technology partner to secure your systems has never been more important.

Our comprehensive portfolio of services & solutions are delivered by OT and industrial security experts with a demonstrable track record and over five decades of experience in the development and support of Industrial Control Systems (ICS) for customers in security-critical sectors.
