How Can you Secure your Industrial Control System?

In this era of technology, just like other sectors industrial sectors are also operating their assets through technology. The use of technology, on one hand, proving to be a boon in enhancing the operations of the industries, but on other hand, it is a bane also as there is a constant risk of cyber-attacks on operating technology assets. Therefore, there is a sharp rise in the demand for an efficient product that could safeguard systems and processes from cyber-attacks.

As a savior for industries, CISCO has a product named Cyber Vision that enables industries to have full visibility into their ICS (Industrial Control Systems). It offers dynamic asset inventory, real-time monitoring of control networks and process data, and comprehensive threat intelligence that can help the industry in safeguarding infrastructure and implementing security policies that could lower the risk of cyber-attacks. It is one of the best tools available in the market for OT (Operational Technology) Cybersecurity.

How can Cyber Vision help you in securing your industrial network from cyber threats?

There is a number of ways by which Cyber Vision can protect an industrial network. They are as follows:

  • Security Requirement Assessment: It automatically creates the list of industrial assets and detailed network maps to assess the security requirement for the industry.
  • Implementation of Segmentation of Network: It creates a group of assets and implements segmentation policies.
  • Comprehensive threat detection: Identifies any threat of asset vulnerability through protocol analysis, intrusion detection, behavioral analysis, and OT threat intelligence.
  • Log maintenance of your ICS: It maintains a log of all events that can be used for audits, creation of incident reports, and driving action with both IT and OT teams.

I think CISCO Cyber Vision is one of the most effective tools that can be used by industries to secure their OT assets.
