Many organizations claim that fielding a dedicated cybersecurity team is cost-prohibitive and difficult to achieve, given a global shortage of cybersecurity professionals. Frequently, industrial controls engineers, supervisors, electrical superintendents, SCADA technicians and others with similar roles are asked to add cybersecurity or compliance — or both — atop their existing responsibilities.

This model can be ineffective, given the speed at which attackers are advancing their approaches and techniques. The bottom line: Your organization needs to build a reasonable level of cyber resiliency.

Our critical infrastructure cybersecurity specialists can streamline the process, allowing you to remain focused on your core business. We do this by facilitating various solutions — on- or off-premises, or managed — that automate key use cases required to address specific vulnerabilities.

Continuous Improvement

Maintaining your program, solution or use case requires regular assessments of its effectiveness and adapting to the ever-changing threat landscape and an expanding regulatory environment. Our team helps you identify the metrics that indicate success and shows you how to consistently and effectively measure for optimal operation.

Data derived from these continuous improvement assessments helps you monitor progress, exposing inefficiencies in processes and identifying opportunities for improvement. This provides the greatest return on investment for budget and work hours saved, by mitigating issues before they become problems.
