Data theft, unauthorized network breaches and sabotage are risks that companies and institutions everywhere are facing on a growing scale. What’s more, the situation is made even more complicated by the often highly developed, well prepared and carefully targeted nature of modern cyberattacks. Worse still, the cost of preparing and mounting such attacks is getting lower, which will only see their impact grow further still. IT infrastructure users and operators only stand any chance of staying safe if they can keep pace with developments as they emerge. Naturally, appropriate countermeasures should always be implemented as appropriate to the need for protection and the scale of the threat. Airbus CyberSecurity is at CeBIT 2017 in Hannover to showcase its entire range of products and services for protecting against cyber threats in a networked world. The portfolio encompasses everything from security solutions for Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and solutions for network security to data and endpoint protection
In the age of Industry 4.0 and digital transformation, industrial monitoring and control systems are no longer run in isolation, but rather as part of a networked production group. At the Secure Operation Center (SOC) – the centerpiece of the company’s stand at CeBIT this year – visitors can see for themselves how to identify, analyze and defend against targeted cyberattacks based on an infected USB stick or unauthorized remote access to a production plant. The SOC also offers visitors a wealth of information about IT security for factory automation and process management and in relation to critical infrastructures. Moreover, security experts can find out about the Airbus ICS Maturity Check and ICS Risk Analysis consulting services, which can help them independently assess the potential security risks that production plants face.
