Cassidian CyberSecurity was awarded a consultancy contract by a major oil and gas company in the Middle East. The contract consists of establishing governance of the company's IT security of industrial control systems (ICS), also called supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA).
The objective is to define the accountability of SCADA security within the company and the roles and responsibilities of the various stakeholders, mainly from IT and automation departments. The consultancy also includes an audit of the architecture and interfaces.
"Energy utilities are under enormous threats from cyber attacks, and this may particularly affect the oil and gas industry,” said Guy Meguer, general manager of Cassidian CyberSecurity in the Middle East. “This is why Cassidian CyberSecurity has developed a specific integrated offer, capable of defending and monitoring ICS used in the oil and gas industries.”
