Protecting Operational Technology to Safeguard Business Operations

Companies are currently facing a series of significant digital transformation challenges as Operational Technology (OT) environments become increasingly interconnected, smarter, and have a greater reliability on Commercial off the Shelf Technology (COTS). The business demand for the raw data and information produced by OT systems is growing exponentially both from an internal and external perspective.

As the demand for operational data increases, so has the volume of cyber-attacks specifically aimed at OT systems with these attacks becoming significantly more sophisticated, advanced and persistent. Cyber-attacks within the OT environment have the potential to impact a number of aspects of a company’s business including safety, health and environment, production operations, information integrity, financial performance, and reputation.

Our Approach

The Leidos approach focuses on People, Processes, and Technology delivering consultancy services ranging from Security Risk Assessments, Situational Reviews, Gap Analysis, and Vulnerability Assessments. We can assist you through your security journey and beyond by applying a mix of recognized standards (IEC62443, ISO27001, etc.) and industry best practices, to provide a clear and concise picture of your organization’s current security posture identifying where potential gaps exist.

Our team service offerings ranges from ensuring that “BASIC” OT system security is addressed providing a solid foundation for the creation of a roadmap that identifies short, medium, and long term strategies significantly raising the security posture of your organization, to more sophisticated activities including designing and implementing OT Network Management Reference Architecture.

By offering an impartial and vendor neutral view, we help our customers drive security and safety forward while developing a plan for further action and ongoing sustainment.

Why your organization needs process control security:

  • Massive rise in targeted attacks aimed specifically at OT systems
  • OT persists as an unique area for companies to secure as part of their larger cyber program
  • Production and financial implications due to a cyber attack can be severe
