Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) launches a digital dashboard designed to proactively monitor, measure and manage cybersecurity risk for control systems for refineries, power plants and other automated production sites throughout the world at increasing risk of cyber attacks. The Honeywell Industrial Cyber Security Risk Manager is designed to simplify the task of identifying areas of cybersecurity risk, providing real-time visibility, understanding and decision support required for action.
The threat of cyber attacks on industrial targets is a major concern according to a global survey on cybersecurity conducted by Ipsos Public Affairs in September 2014 on behalf of Honeywell. More than 5,000 adults in 10 countries were surveyed about the threat of cyber attacks on critical industries in their countries. Three quarters of respondents said they were fearful that cyber criminals could hack into and control major sectors and elements of the economy. Two-thirds of those surveyed thought that the oil and gas, chemicals and power industries were particularly vulnerable to cyber attacks.
Risk Manager technologies translate complex cybersecurity indicators into clear measurements and key performance indicators (KPI), and provide essential information through an easy-to-use interface, according to Honeywell The intuitive workflow allows users to create customized risk notification alerts and perform detailed threat and vulnerability analysis.
Risk Manager monitors plant assets within and across all security zones of a plant, including third-party systems. By understanding security zones, Risk Manager is aligned with ISA 62443 and is able to calculate accurate risk scores, according to Honeywell. Risk Manager’s real-time measurement of risk is in line with industry standard risk management methodologies so that risk scores can be used consistently and accurately throughout a corporation’s risk and governance efforts.
