OT/ICS Vulnerability Management for Power Grids

Security regulations for critical systems, such as the EU NIS directive and NERC-CIP, and other cybersecurity frameworks and standards stipulate vulnerability management as a key aspect of any cybersecurity program for the power grid. By mapping publicly known vulnerabilities to your system infrastructure, you can determine and implement an appropriate response based on risk assessment. Thus, threats to the network are identified and the integrity of your system is ensured.

Always remember: You can only protect, what you see. The database – which our security analysts have created – shows you all the vulnerabilities which are relevant to your system. The more information you have about each asset, the more accurate your detection, analysis, and prioritization will be.

Risk prevention is a process that starts with identifying your status quo: your assets, your associated vulnerabilities, and your infrastructure attack vectors. However, you also need to implement proper security protection/prevention measures. A continuous monitoring of the power system traffic with an IDS is necessary. If your risk assessment detects any malicious activity, an accurate response is needed, before recovering and quickly bringing the network back to the normal state.

Expert recommends

Our StationGuard Solution

Our IDS StationGuard and its central management system GridOps work perfectly together: while GridOps provides the management interface for StationGuard’s sensors across the grid, StationGuard collects all the data and analyzes it.
 

Our products

StationGuard allows robust asset inventory management with comprehensive and rich data per asset. This is crucial to successful vulnerability management.

GridOps is a component of StationGuard that provides additional management and features, such as grid-level asset inventory, alert dashboard, sensor management, centralized user management, vulnerability management, and reporting.
 

Choose your setup

You decide on the perfect platform for your intended use. Our solution runs on RBX1 (fixed), VBX1 (virtual), and on MBX1 (mobile) platforms.

 

Many Threats, One Solution

Control systems often use legacy equipment and software not updated with security patches. The patching requires these systems to be taken offline for maintenance, which is costly and disrupts critical operations. The risk of falling prey to attackers and ransomware increases over time.

 

Improve Your Security Risk Assessment with a comprehensive Vulnerability Management

Our StationGuard Solution enables a holistic approach to the essential security risk assessment for the benefit of your system security. Ensuring the availability of critical services is the goal. Therefore, our solution delivers insight into both cybersecurity aspects and functional aspects of the automation system and network. It aims to reveal security risks, such as attack surfaces, vulnerabilities, but also functional problems in the network or the automation devices. It also establishes an asset inventory to provide full visibility of the OT components and documents them.
