Cybersecurity for Waste Treatment Plants

Intrusion Detection System for thermal, biological and mechanical waste treatment infrastructure
  • Ensure NIS2 compliance

    … with a dedicated intrusion detection system for OT networks.

  • Secure your industrial processes

    … with a passive, non-intrusive OT cybersecurity monitoring.

  • Build your OT Security knowhow

    … through expert assistance for forensic analysis and operational support.

Meet your legal obligations and secure your industrial processes

Operators of critical waste treatment plants face two challenges at once with the NIS2 and the national cybersecurity regulations:

  1. They must meet their legal obligations to use an intrusion detection system in their OT networks.
  2. They have to build OT cyber security from scratch in the face of a prevailing skills shortage and limited resources.

Meanwhile, the thermal, biological and mechanical waste treatment plants must run 24/7/365. Therefore, cyber security for industrial processes must be simple, integrated and reliable.

We know our networks and service companies very well. Nevertheless, Rhebo’s intrusion detection system keeps surprising us by alerting us to security risks and irregularities that still remain in our OT communication.

Lightweight intrusion detection for waste treatment operators

With the Rhebo intrusion detection system, owners and operators of waste treatment plants can monitor their OT networks for cyber attacks, manipulation and error states and initiate targeted mitigation measures.

The intrusion detection system passively monitors all communication processes within the OT network, provides comprehensive asset visibility, detects vulnerabilities and reports incidents in real time that could jeopardize the security and availability of the critical infrastructure.

Ensure NIS2 compliance

Owners and operators of waste-to-energy plants and waste incineration plants must comply to the NIS2 requirements and the respective national legislation. Rhebo supports your company in many aspects of the NIS2 Directive, particularly risk analysis, cyber hygiene, effectiveness assessment, intrusion detection, incident handling and reporting obligations.

This eBook examines the challenges of NIS2 requirements in OT networks, and explains how you can overcome them while bringing the residual risk under control.
