With more frequent and increasingly vicious cyberattacks, vulnerabilities in IT architecture pose a severe threat. Particularly the energy sector is targeted, making upgraded cybersecurity a matter not only of securing production and business value but also of national interest to keep society up and running – and people safe.

Cybersecurity in critical infrastructure – a matter of national interest

Critical infrastructure enterprises are vital to our society as they provide crucial services such as power, telecommunications, transportation, water etc. We cannot do without these services, or at the very least, a disruption would make life difficult, and even affect our national security. That is why dedicated work with consistent cybersecurity measures in this sector not only is interesting for the enterprises as such – but also a matter of national interest.

Avoid cyberattacks – secure power and a functioning society

Cyberattacks targeted at energy companies are more and more frequent – and the results can be devastating. A severe cyberattack on the control systems can result in a total switch-off of all power provided by this energy company. And without power, few things in today’s society will not work. To avoid falling victim to a cyberattack, consistent and structured work with cybersecurity is necessary and advanced, high assurance cybersecurity solutions must be implemented.

Achieve security insight – the start of securing power and a functioning society

To achieve cybersecurity insight, security log data management and monitoring is often key input. By monitoring logins, failed login attempts, transactions, USB usage etc, effective preventive measures can be mapped out and damage control can be taken without delay. Another key input is to make a risk and security analysis. Based on this analysis you can evaluate the requirements to ensure the right level of security is defined according to the identified challenges.
