Protecting productivity with Industrial Security Services
Defense strategy against all potential threats
The rapidly growing threat landscape and changing security risks call for a preventive and industry-specific defense strategy. The visions of Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT) involve the next development stage of connectivity and interaction between the virtual and physical worlds. Production processes and Industrial Control Systems (ICS) in particular continue to pose new targets and require a higher level of security.
Plant protection on multiple levelsDigitalization increasingly interconnects industrial facilities. On the one hand this enables numerous new insights based on analyzed data. On the other hand this leads to a higher risk of cyber attacks, which requires an effective protection concept that consists of multiple layers and protects industrial facilities against any threats.
Specific concepts for reliable protection
With Siemens Industrial Security Services, industrial companies benefit from the comprehensive know-how as well as the technical expertise of a global network of specialists for automation and cybersecurity. The holistic approach of the industry-specific concept is based on state-of-the-art technologies as well as the applicable security rules and standards. Threats and malware are detected at an early stage, vulnerabilities analyzed in detail, and appropriate comprehensive security measures are initiated. Continuous monitoring gives plant operators the greatest possible transparency regarding the security of their industrial facility and optimal investment protection at all times.
