Siemens Industrial Security

See organization →
The mission of the Siemens Cybersecurity Laboratory is to provide a holistic Cybersecurity concept by offering comprehensive protection based on our "Defense in Depth" model, to help our clients face new challenges and to stay safe while protecting their productivity. The concept is based on three pillars: plant safety, network safety and system integrity, according to the recommendations of ISA 99 / IEC 62443, the main safety standard in industrial automation. For Siemens as a great expert in the OT world, Cybersecurity means protecting the systems and machines that are used in production. This means that, on the one hand, what the authorities demand must be done, but on the other hand we must take into account and be aware that we are exposed to real threats in our business. Threats to which we must face and of which we must defend trying to get cyber-resilient systems. There are four main reasons to provide protection for production systems and machines: Protection of availability and productivity Protect the integrity of finished products in itself Protection of intellectual property implemented in these systems and machines Protect the reputation In the laboratory is composed of four well differentiated scenarios: Scenario of a Discrete Industry - based on PLC's and SCADA Scenario of a Process Industry - Based on a distributed control Telecontrol scenario - with SINAUT protocols, IEC 60870-5-104, DNP3, IEC 61850, ... Secure remote access system In all of them, we provide these scenarios with the corresponding Patching, User Management and Backup Management systems, for the servers and the network infrastructure necessary for the correct implementation of the highest levels of industrial security, without forgetting the installation of DMZ's , for the interconnection of the OT network with the IT network of the factory.
