SECURING CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE & PROTECTING INDUSTRIAL CONTROL SYSTEMS (ICS)

As companies undergo digital transformation, operators across industries are adopting advanced technologies to mitigate threats. Most information technology (IT) departments are well suited to minimize risk to their business networks. However, many original designers of legacy operational technology (OT) networks built assets with little or no consideration to cybersecurity; as a result, systems that were once isolated from security threats are now unpatched, unprotected, and vulnerable to critical attacks.

As the industrial sector continues to modernize operations, OT and IT have converged. Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and industrial control systems (ICS) are growing more interconnected and susceptible to security threats.

The data availability and connectivity of OT improves the monitoring and controlling of physical devices, processes, and events—but, simultaneously, increases the risk of cyberattacks. Adopting risk management strategies and other assurance mechanisms is crucial in proactively protecting key assets.

DEPLOYING A TAILORED DEFENSE APPROACH

Embedding safe, secure cyber solutions to protect the OT environment requires advanced expertise in modern control systems and legacy systems. For decades, Audubon Companies has helped operators assess dynamic risks while protecting and managing their operations.

We leverage in-depth industrial automation knowledge and cyber experience, including network architectures, communication media, network component configurations, user authentications, and operating systems. With safety, reliability, and productivity as our top priorities, we collaborate with you on fit-for-purpose OT and cyber-risk solutions that protect your business continuity and safeguard your operations 24/7 while you reap the benefits of digital connectivity across your enterprise.
