The Industrial Internet of Things can provide mountains of data in near-real time. Buried in that data are nuggets of actionable information: a sensor reading here, 这里有一个指示器, that when analyzed over time can provide valuable insight for owners of critical infrastructure. But mining and refining that information has proven to be a formidable big-data challenge. And every window created to monitor and access that data creates a potential vulnerability of a critical asset.
We help our Customers protect and operate their critical infrastructure through our operational technology (OT) 网络安全 - asset performance management (APM) solutions.
APM is a unique suite of services that integrates process optimization, 网络安全, software tools and applications for optimizing availability of operational assets (such as plant, 设备, and infrastructure) that are essential to the operation of an enterprise.
它使用数据捕获, 集成, 可视化, and analytics to improve operations, and maintenance and inspection activities. APM includes the concepts of asset strategy and risk management, 预测预报, and reliability-centered maintenance. 我们利用我们的设计, 建设, and operations expertise for our customers to increase their asset’s efficiency while increasing their cyber resiliency.
A research agreement with George Mason University’s Volgenau School of Engineering enables Mason students and faculty in 网络安全 to access the laboratory for research and internships.
The ability to remotely access Industrial Control Systems and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (ICS/SCADA) exposes these vital systems to an increasingly dangerous environment where thousands of cyber attacks per hour are the norm. Bechtel’s Industrial Control Systems Cybersecurity 技术 Center focuses on helping customers protect large-scale industrial and infrastructure systems that support critical infrastructure such as 设备 that controls government facilities, 发电厂, 水处理厂, 或者公共交通系统.
Bechtel is one of the first global EPC firms to offer an ICS 网络安全 capability for its customers. With many years of ICS expertise and access to subject matter experts, Bechtel brings a unique perspective through experience in design, startup and 建设 of complex and high-risk projects across the entire facility life cycle.
Bechtel’s dedicated research and 开发ment ICS/SCADA 网络安全 laboratory will be capable of:
NIST-RMF标准化 & 最佳实践
SIEM testing and implementations
设计, 开发, and deploy a suite of tools for situational awareness (Event monitoring, 入侵检测系统, 系统日志, 等.)
Insider threat mitigation program
The center's lab will be able to test vulnerabilities of these systems on simulated and real-world 设备 they control in a safe environment and will serve as a proving ground for producing robust systems for use at customer facilities. 作为一家跨国公司, Bechtel’s ability to move and procure 设备 from key markets will support this testing.
Bechtel cyber defenders demonstrate how to detect and prevent a man-in-the-middle attack on an industrial control system.
A successful cyber attack on a U.S. power grid could be more severe than a hurricane or large earthquake, affecting all elements of infrastructure from drinking water to food supply, 住所到交通工具.
The tech center can help fill critical security gaps between software and hardware manufacturers, and plant operations – and provide expertise in the U.S. government’s National Institute of Standards and 技术 Risk Management Framework (NIST-RMF).
