Security & Cybersecurity
Is your network protected against costly cyber attacks?
Manufacturing and industrial plants house complex IT networks with vast amounts of data collected and communicated between devices. These large connected networks are major targets for cyber attacks, enticing criminals to steal valuable data and impact a company’s bottom line. In order to protect this wealth of data, security assessments and testing should be performed to identify potential weaknesses and work to strengthen the overall network.
facts – Security:
- More than 80% of manufacturing and industrial executives in the medium-large sector anticipate a security breach in their enterprise.
- Moving and sharing data outside of the plant floor to the cloud or hybrid cloud creates risk and opportunity for a breach.
- To a hacker, a smart device is a vulnerable, exploitable device.
- Denison’s security professionals are experienced in continuously addressing potential breaches throughout the design, build and network management process.
facts – Vulnerability & Risk:
- Cyber security incidents are on the rise, particularly in the manufacturing and engineering sectors.
- In 2015, U.S. companies lost an estimated $61.3 billion in revenue due to a cyber attack.
- Data is vulnerable to all kinds of threats regardless of type, industry, location or protection mechanisms in place.
- Denison can conduct a thorough security audit, suggest risk mitigations and offer recommendations to strengthen and implement security changes required against malicious intrusions/cyber attacks.
facts – Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC):
- GRC tackles an organization’s management, risk management and compliance strategies to help the organization reach its overall goals.
- Addressing cyber security is a critical part of any effective risk management program, particularly in the industrial and manufacturing sectors.
- Denison conducts vulnerability and risk assessments to identify potential flaws or weaknesses in a network and will work to eliminate them, strengthening the overall enterprise architecture.
facts – Penetration & Intrusion Testing:
- Penetration and intrusion testing simulate an attack on a network, looking for security vulnerabilities or opportunities to break into a system and steal its data.
- By mimicking the mindset of a potential cybercriminal, security experts are able to remain steps ahead of costly security breaches.
- Denison analyzes the strength of each network by performing penetration and intrusion testing to spot potential faults in a system, thus stopping cyber attacks before they are able to be carried out.
Point of View:
IIoT and Cyber Security
Are Your Supply Chain Partners Ready for the IIoT?
Malicious actors exist and cybercrime is rising exponentially. US infrastructure and core manufacturing are of particular interest with heightened risk. Thieves and hackers take the path of least resistance, not through the well-guarded front door. Are your core suppliers secure enough to protect shared information and prevent a weak-link backdoor to manufacturing? 80% of targeted attacks are directed at SME (small and medium enterprises). These same companies lack the knowledge, resources and dollar commitment to put in place security systems to prevent infusion and attack . . .
Point of View:
Who are the main targets, and where are the main sources of breach?
When asked if companies have adequate security in place to protect their interests, industry experts often hear, “We’ve Got That Covered”. But is this really true?
Good and evil have existed from the beginning of time. In the fast paced Internet age, malicious threats and evil manifest themselves at warp speed. Has the Internet data deluge become so overwhelming that many people have shutdown, detached, withdraw, or perhaps reached an emotional state whereby we ignore these emotions and enter what psychologists refer to as a “flat affect”, whereby we have no emotions? . . .
Point of View:
Security in an Internet of Things [IoT] World
Today, industries are seeing unprecedented levels of automation and supply chain efficiencies as industrial control systems connect to the Internet. In the era of IoT, more and more devices connected to the network will impact our life and continuously change the way we interact with these devices. While there are many benefits in an all-connected world, we simultaneously create and are part of increased exposure to new security threats and issues created by these devices a.k.a ‘things’ . . .
