Leipzig/Ottobrunn, Germany, May 14, 2019 – The success of digitalizing industrial plants depends on the security and stability of the industrial control systems (ICS). Not only targeted attacks and spillover effects, as frequently observed in ransomware attacks, threaten plant availability and sales. Technical error states, overload conditions and misconfigurations also endanger the efficiency, stability and product quality of the facilities. Those responsible for the ICS in industrial or critical infrastructure companies need full transparency of their networks as well as an early warning system for errors, deviations and cyber attacks.

Rhebo and IABG support their customers with joint solutions and services to secure industrial networks. IABG is well established as an independent and competent consulting company for security-relevant technologies, particularly in the automotive, information technology, mobility, energy & environment, aviation, aerospace and defence & security sectors. It supports these industries in the implementation, improvement and operation of information security management systems (ISMS) according to ISO 27001 and IEC 62443. Founded in 1961, the company offers its customers integrated future-oriented solutions and operates them upon request. With Rhebo, IABG expands its product portfolio with the field-tested solution for asset inventory, communication and condition monitoring as well as anomaly detection in ICS. 

Wolfgang Fritsche, Head of Competence Center InfoKom:

»In the InfoCom business field, IABG has extensive experience in the digitalization and secure networking of IT and industrial plants. IABG's range of services covers topics such as cyber security including training, industrial security, the introduction, improvement, operation and auditing of ISMS, the development of IT security concepts and the conception and implementation of security solutions.
