On May 21-22, 2019, ARC Advisory Group will host its European Industry Forum (EIF) in the Meliã Hotel Sitges in Spain.  The European Industry Forum is part of ARC’s successful series of worldwide conferences in the USA, India, China, and Japan.

Emanuel Marynko, Chairman of Yanai Engineering, and Ilan Barda, Founder and CEO of Radiflow, will introduce us to “Building Blocks for Successful OT Cyber-Protection Service”.

Building Blocks for Successful OT Cyber-protection Service

Most industrial operators find it difficult to manage the cyber protection of their OT networks as it requires a skill set combining unique technology and expertise in both cybersecurity and operational engineering.  Cyber protecting SCADA systems on OT networks is inherently problematic as the control equipment, controllers, and communication protocols were not designed with cybersecurity in mind.  Many types of cyberattacks that are no longer relevant to IT networks still threaten OT networks.  At the same time, most industrial operators do not want to install active security measures in their real-time networks, most generally use mainly simple and passive methods, such as hardening and implementation of policies.

Yanai’s solution includes setting up an external managed Security Operation Center (SOC) service for monitoring customers’ network activity.  It combines cybersecurity monitoring products with expert resources and methodologies, enabling a multilayer approach.  One of the main components of our SOC is the threat detection system by Radiflow, a leader in the industrial cybersecurity field, which has already detected several attacks in real-time.
