Your company matters not just to you, but to us. First, we want to hear about your concerns. Then we will take a real-time inventory of your assets, and determine areas of risk. Finally, we will formulate a solution which your company can grow with to achieve your long term goals.
Threat vectors will continue to evolve within cybersecurity, as will the targets. But there are basic pillars which remain constant in the protection of critical assets. Vulnerabilities consistently are exposed and remain the main avenue in which bad actors take advantage. However, if we can quickly identify the critical assets, vulnerabilities in the critical assets, and then the integrity of the critical assets, we can maintain a steadfastness within an IT/OT environment, regardless of the evolution of attacks.
There are four areas in which critical infrastructure should be concerned in order to reduce their attack surface; Identifying Critical Assets, Vulnerabilities within the Critical Assets, Anomalies, Activity Monitoring with Data; Structured and Unstructured.
Identifying assets which are mission critical is a key component to a security strategy. How do you protect what you do not know? Critical assets are not only endpoints, but also applications which communicate to intelligent electronic devices, as well as databases, and device networks.
Vulnerabilities have the potential to reside in each of these digital interfaces. Additionally, detecting and remediating the vulnerabilities, is consider a challenge since critical infrastructure is built around a reliability and precision engineering real time model. Thus it is not uncommon to find unsupported operating systems communicating with Programmable Logic Controlers PLC, and Remote Terminal Units RTU.
Since patching a vulnerabilty may destabilize a system. It is important as part of the security architecture to look at anomalies within the network infrastructure.
