Industrial cybersecurity services aim to address skills gap

07 October 2018

Honeywell has introduced new cybersecurity consulting services designed to help industrial and critical infrastructure customers identify and eliminate dangerous security weaknesses.

The new CyberVantage Security Consulting Services portfolio now includes Penetration Testing, which provides active ‘white-hat’ hackers who exploit customer defenses in order to fix them. It now also offers System Hardening to reduce software vulnerabilities and assists in the safe compliance with global Center for Internet Security (CIS) industry benchmarks.

The need for industrial cybersecurity skills is particularly critical as the process industries face a growing worldwide skills gap, with research company Cybersecurity Ventures predicting 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity positions by 2021. 

Delivered by consultants with expertise in both operational technology (OT) and industrial cybersecurity, the services can help lower the risk and possible impact of security incidents and improve industrial cybersecurity maturity levels. Strategically, CyberVantage Security Consulting Services provide capabilities that enable safer connected plants, digital transformation, and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) efforts.

“Our OT/IT experience has resulted in the successful delivery of more than 5000 projects, helping customers prioritise their cybersecurity investments,” said Mike Spear, global operations director for Industrial Cyber Security at Honeywell. “As a result, they have maximised ROI and reduced risk, saving both time and costs. Additionally, our cybersecurity consultants are familiar with the rigorous requirements of working in an industrial facility and maintain a variety of safety and security certifications.”
