Industrial and OT Cybersecurity Solutions
OT Cybersecurity Risk: A Growing Threat for Operational Technology Networks
Organizations are challenged to improve cybersecurity according to a survey of 701 practitioners from industries dependent on industrial control systems and other OT. Ponemon Institute's survey data show that most organizations understand cyberattacks are relentless and continuous against OT environments. Cyber risk can expose your business to significant disruption and operational downtime without visibility and control. Organizations in the OT sector must minimize and mitigate the growing threat of cyber risk.
A comprehensive OT cybersecurity program is mission-critical to your business.
UNDERSTAND YOUR RISK
Respondents experienced an attack against OT infrastructure which resulted in downtime to the company's plant and/or operational equipment in past 24 months.
REDUCE YOUR UNCERTAINTY
Respondents say downtime of OT systems is the highest factor used when quantifying their organization's overall cyber risk.
NEED FOR EXPERTISE
Respondents agree organizations must prioritize cybersecurity and improve ability to keep up with the sophistication and stealth of cyber attackers.

Industrial Cybersecurity Solutions
ABS Group approaches cybersecurity as a risk management function. Our risk-based solutions cover every stage of your cyber defense for converging IT and OT systems. We offer capabilities based on a client's specific needs and unique operating environment to support existing organizational strategies for risk, reliability and operational safety. Without a comprehensive industrial cybersecurity program, organizations open themselves to the risk of losing visibility and control over their OT assets.
OT Network Risk Assessment
Technology risks are derived from the exploitability of an asset's functions, through its connections, and by human or digital identities. Our risk assessment process focuses on analyzing potential cyber threats using the ABS FCI Cyber Risk Model™. This method helps our clients understand their unique cyber risk levels so they can make better decisions and investments.
- Analyze impacts to asset technologies (Functions)
- Assess each technology's level of exploitability by threats (Connections)
- Determine likelihood based on exposures to threats (Identities)
- Grade cyber risks based on severity
