48 Cubes and Dimen5ion have entered into a joint partnership to deliver ICS and IT Cyber Security Consulting Services and Solutions
Organizations tasked with running critical infrastructure such as oil and gas, energy, water, and manufacturing, etc. must do so across two disparate yet interconnected zones: IT Systems(IT) and Industrial Control Systems(ICS). Where gaps once existed between these zones and communication was conducted along serial connections on proprietary systems, today’s environments are more interconnected than ever, leveraging the older frameworks plus expanded communication channels across IP, wireless, and mobile, and running common operating systems and applications. This has created greater efficiencies and effectiveness in terms of overall operations and measurement, but it has also introduced RISK!
As our critical infrastructures are being modernized into the new era of Internet of Things(IoT), new intelligent technologies utilizing two-way communications and other digital advantages are being optimized by Internet connectivity. Modernization of many IC(Industrial Control) systems (in particular, the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition(SCADA) system) also has resulted in connections to the Internet. While these advances will improve the efficiency and performance of the systems, they also will increase its vulnerability to potential cyber attacks. Securing critical networks in the era of sophisticated cyber attacks means that multiple products must operate together without introducing complexity or impacting availability.
Our cyber security focused consultative approach help address – Why Industrial Networks are Different than IT Networks? We create awareness around – Why Industrial Control Systems are not IT Systems and Why they both need a Different Methodology to Security?
Our unique ways of re-thinking and innovative approach helps companies realize and recognize the difference in their security objectives and goal priorities which are inherently very different; for IT around “Protect the Data” while for ICS around “Protect the Process”.
