As an engineering firm, we are able to provide you with an overview of the cybersecurity products on the market today and can help you unlock the full security potential of your existing assets. Throughout the event, we will have hands-on demonstrations outlining how to create secure and cyber-aware devices and systems.

Here are a few highlights of the services and technologies we will be covering during the event:

SIEM Integration

A security information and event management system offers a nice way to store, process, and analyze security events across a large number of devices. However, field devices have to be programmed and bandwidth limitations considered when these technologies are integrated.

Cyber Visulization

In the same way systems and devices are programmed to monitor they physical flow of power, they can also be configured to monitor the grid’s supporting cyber infrastructure. Cyber visualization helps asset owners maximize the potential of there assets without the need of additional software or hardware.

Remote Security Monitoring

Remote security monitoring is essential if security teams are located away from the devices and if systems are communicating out to remote logging services. The primary challenge associated with this technique is how do you achieve this functionality  in a secure manner.

Cyber-Event Notifications via SMS/Email

Based on the priority of a cyber-event, the asset and system can be engineered to securely send a text message or email to appointed security personnel informing them of the potentially damaging event. Anything from physical access to unauthorized settings changes of an IED can be unqieuly identified, captured, and securely sent to security teams and engineers.

Cyber Asset Management 

With so many devices spread across multiple sites, managing and tracking vulnerabilities and critical patches can be a time consuming task if performed manually. Additionally, there are a number of challenges with ensuring that a system’s baseline configuration is up-to-date. Through our multiple partners, we can help you discover how to overcome these challenges.
