Cyber Attacks, Sabotage, and Downtimes
The exposure of industrial oil and gas utilities to cyber threats increases with the growth in data-driven, networked production plants, refineries, and management.
In 2017, Deloitte identified the upstream sectors of exploration, development, and production as the most sensitive areas with regard to vulnerability and the effects of cyber incidents. But also the midstream (transport) and downstream (refineries) sectors have been the focus of hackers on several occasions. Oil & Gas facility operators face the challenge of securing their operations against any downtime risks.
Safeguarding Oil & Gas Infrastructures Against Disruptions
Oil and gas infrastructure operators therefore need full digital transparency within their Industrial Control Systems (ICS) to consistently detect successful penetrations as well as technical errors.
The monitoring of all communication processes by means of an industrial anomaly detection guarantees the detection of every suspicious incident in the industrial network. This means that even covert attacks and fault states can be detected in real-time and prevented immediately.
DETECT NETWORK ANOMALIES IN REAL-TIME
Rhebo Industrial Protector monitors, analyzes and visualizes all assets and the complete data traffic within your ICS as part of your defense-in-depth strategy. In real-time, the anomaly detection reports any communication of:
- known and unknown malicious code;
- professional cyberattacks (advanced persistent threats), internal sabotage and manipulation;
- technical network errors.
Specific industrial protocol types such as PROFINET, Ethernet/IP, CIP and Siemens S7 are supported without exception.
YOUR ADVANTAGE: You always have clarity about potentially harmful communication processes in your ICS. This allows you to react immediately to potential disturbances ‒ before your exploration, production, and transport processes are affected or risk downtimes.
