360 Degrees of Cyber Security Protection

Disrupting threats in the digital age to keep critical infrastructure up and running

The convergence of software, data and connected devices, commonly referred to as the Internet of Things, brings unprecedented opportunities to industrial companies like real time operations optimization and prescriptive analytics. This sweeping technological transformation also introduces a wide array of security threats that require a layered defense approach to detect, respond and remediate at all levels of operations.

To ensure comprehensive protection of production environments, all levels must be protected simultaneously, from field automation to corporate management systems. Siemens helps industrial companies build layered defenses with a comprehensive security solution that addresses the three pillars of industrial control systems: system and software integrity, network security and plant security. Our methodology:

  • Capitalizes on Siemens operational technology expertise 
  • Integrates recommendations from leading security standards (e.g. IEC 62443, RMF, ISO 27000)
  • Ensures systems integrity through integrated security features in drives, controllers, HMI systems, process automation and motion control systems
  • Protects against unauthorized network activity via encrypted communication, VPN, firewalls, cell protection, DMZ, and remote traffic monitoring via intrusion detection systems
  • Secures physical access to plant and critical components via access control and asset protection services
