Ensure a reliable defense against cyber threats

Industrial Security

Implementation of secure IT Architectures

Industrial Security takes a holistic approach to the security of industrial systems and processes. A main focus is on the implementation of secure IT architectures. By developing and implementing robust security structures, potential points of attack are minimized to ensure a reliable defense against cyber threats. The key points in industrial security are:

  • Implementation of identity-based access

    This measure enables precise control over who can access which resources, thus creating an additional layer of protection against unauthorized access to critical systems and data.

  • Secure transformation to the cloud

    By carefully planning and implementing secure cloud transformations, potential risks are minimized and the benefits of cloud-based infrastructures can be used effectively without neglecting security.

  • Security from Operational Technology (OT)

    Securing industrial control systems and production environments against cyber threats is essential to ensure smooth operation and the integrity of industrial processes.

  • Effective Asset Management

    By accurately taking inventory of and monitoring assets, potential vulnerabilities can be better identified and protected proactively.

  • Continuity and backup strategies

    Ensure business continuity in the event of unforeseen cyberattacks or system failures and secure critical data with regular backups.

Project stories in Cyber Security

  • Development of the innogy CyberRange-e

    Business Model Development and Operationalization

    An in-house training center, the "CyberRange-e", was set up to provide in-depth education and training for employees in IT and OT areas, where the company's own employees have been trained in a realistic environment since mid-2019. This project was approached in a structured manner together with UNITY: First, the competitive landscape for realistic cyber security training was examined and interviews were conducted with potential target customers in order to then derive the target position of the CyberRange-e ecosystem.
