The energy sector has experienced a six-fold increase in the growing number of cybersecurity threats.
Global State of Information Security Survey
Energy and electric utility grids are targets for nation state-sponsored cyber attacks. With many legacy devices in power generation, transmission and distribution SCADA networks, energy networks are vulnerable. Network detection and firewalls are not strong enough to keep determined hackers out. Many DCS systms, substation automation systems, IEDs, RTUs, and controllers for turbines, generators, and compressors are vulnerable due to a lack of strong, embedded cryptographic controls, including: multi-factor authentication, secure boot, secure update, and secure, encrypted communications.
Mocana’s End-to-end Cybersecurity System is a FIPS 140-2 validated embedded cybersecurity software solution that ensures device trustworthiness and secure communications by giving industrial automation manufacturers, OEMs and critical infrastructure operators an easy way to harden electronic control units and controllers with multi-factor authentication using trust chaining, as well as secure boot to validate the firmware, OS and applications.
