Security & Vulnerability Analysis

Fortify your facility and cybersecurity

Quickly Uncover Vulnerabilities, Create Actions, and Alert Key Stakeholders

Hazardous industries are contending with new forms of operational risk that compromise the security of digital systems and critical infrastructure.


Cybersecurity Risk

Traditional plant control systems as well as new digital transformation initiatives require organizations to integrate and connect more of their businesses, potentially exposing the organization to cybersecurity risk. Indeed, while they offer the potential for improved safeguards, efficiencies and return, distributed control systems (DSC), Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS), sensors, autonomous controls, cloud computing, big data analytics, and artificial intelligence can heighten cyber risk. Even breaching a single, connected operational technology (OT) device or system will put everything on the network at risk.

Companies must couple process control system and technology investments with an assessment of the potential security vulnerabilities for improved visibility. By understanding where the process is susceptible to risk, organizations can prioritize security initiatives and reduce their digital risk profile.


Facility Risk

All facilities face risks associated with threats because of accidents or intentional acts to cause harm; including, domestic and international terrorism, special interest groups, activists and disgruntled employees. Regardless of nature, facility owners have a responsibility to limit or manage risks from these threats.

By developing and implementing security risk assessment and management methodologies that adhere to regulations, facility owners can calculate their vulnerability to a threat and determine needed countermeasures and required upgrades.
