Ensure the secure use of your equipment
The manufacturers of industrial control systems (ICS) have recognised the growing IT security threat in the industrial environment. To cope with threats and risks, they implement security mechanisms in their systems. However, as long as operators and integrators are not actively involved, all efforts to reach the security of the entire system will remain piecemeal.
Production facilities are made up of many individual systems and are only as strong and secure as their weakest links. Operators and integrators must understand the security mechanisms implemented by the manufacturers of industrial control systems, align them to their individual needs and adopt them throughout their entire system.
TÜV SÜD partners manufacturers of industrial control systems in developing an IT security handbook based on the defense-in-depth strategy for the operators and integrators of production facilities
- Support: Development of an IT security handbook customised to the demands of the ICS manufacturer and the operator or integrator.
- Analysis: Deriving security measures which are suitable to ensure the secure operation of the ICS in the production plant.
- Design and development: We work with the ICS manufacturer from the first draft to the final version to create an IT security handbook.
The ICS Security Handbook describes comprehensive security mechanisms for the usage of the ICS.
