For critical infrastructure industries such as electricity generation, transportation, oil and gas, utilities, and telecommunications, the main concern is keeping services up and running. Any disruption could result in a loss of vital services. For other critical industries, such as aviation and transport, a loss of service can cause productivity and revenue loss, partial loss of view for human operators, disruption to physical processes and can lead to reputational damage.
Old operational technology (OT) equipment was primarily built to ensure availability rather than to be secure. In general, OT systems have been isolated from IT systems in the past, but as infrastructure companies move to new technologies, there are operational threats to the old systems. It can be a balancing act between changing policy, improving services, and managing the risk of making changes.
Threats often originate from IT networks and get passed on to OT systems. Security teams lack visibility of IT traffic and anomalies, which allow them to protect the OT network. Instead, OT teams need to adopt a reactive approach for detecting these threats so that these vulnerabilities can be mitigated.
Faced with threats to OT systems that often originate from IT networks, security teams need visibility of IT traffic and anomalies. Choose Reveal to improve supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) security as the first and most critical step to gain visibility.
Continuous monitoring provides visibility into user behaviour, data access, and system use. Security operators can search on file, USB device, connection, browser, application events, and more.
Individual user profiles shed light on how data is accessed and used, with optional anonymization for privacy. With user activity monitoring, you can protect your systems and data from those who already have privileged access and knowledge of sensitive data and systems.
With incident-based training, you can train your employees to make the right decisions on detection of unacceptable behavior, reinforce corporate security policies, and promote good cyber hygiene. Achieve a lasting impactful effect with adaptive IT security policy enforcement.
Track file movement on and across systems and browsers with advanced content inspection to protect against data loss. Patterns include credit or debit card numbers, identity card numbers, insurance numbers, social security numbers, and national health service numbers.
