Advanced Network Security for Energy Facilities
Deception Based Threat Detection
Whether you are thinking oil, gas, electric, massive hydroelectric dams or nuclear power plants, they are all vulnerable to cyber attacks, which could be devastating. Modern factories, refineries, ports, and countless other industrial environments all are designed to central networks which have vulnerabilities that allow attackers to gain access to the network, take full control, and cause potentially fatal damage. Any single vulnerability has far-reaching consequences, ones that go far beyond typical inconvenience or financial impact of typical data breaches.
The 2010 Stuxnet attack on Iranian nuclear facilities and the 2014 cyber attack on a German steel mill where the factory owners could not shut down a blast furnace, are examples of the cyber attacks that were designed to cause physical damage to their targets. Whether it is an attack on a power station, hydroelectric dam or nuclear substation, cyber threats must be treated seriously.
