System Security Services

Operational technology (OT), such as industrial control systems (ICS), supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems and monitoring systems are increasingly being connected to traditional information technology (IT) systems for many valid operational and business reasons. Often legacy equipment has not been designed to be secure and connecting it to today's networks presents opportunities for attack. The arrival of the internet of things (IoT) and the industrial internet of things (IIoT) presents further vulnerabilities that might be exploited by malicious attackers. Whereas a successful attack on an IT systems might result in a loss of vital and private data, an attack on an OT system has the potential to become a safety-related incident with resulting injury or even loss of life.

Whether you are interested in protecting data within your IT system or in safeguarding processes within an OT system, Standard Eight can undertake security and safety risk analyses that will highlight where design changes might be necessary.

We are also able to visit your company to talk to you and your employees to enhance security awareness.
