Power generation systems are the backbone of our civilization, providing essential power for daily life. The potential for sabotage or manipulation of these facilities through cyber attacks poses significant risks to the economy and local communities.
Mitigating cybersecurity risks in Electric Power Generation
The use of Operational Technologies (OT) to automate power generation facilities creates security vulnerabilities and cyber risks. These facilities also stand as potential targets for bad actors considering the critical role they play in the economy.
Each type of electricity generation, gas, fuel, or nuclear reaction, has its own unique cyber risks related to OT which must be taken into account to prevent sabotage or unexpected shutdowns in unprepared plants.
The Solution: DeNexus' DeRISK for Electric Power Generation
The DeRisk platform helps energy producers anticipate and mitigate cyber risks. By doing so, businesses can ensure their resilience in the face of ever-evolving cyber threats.
DeNexus' DeRisk will help answer questions such as:
- How much cyber risk do I carry in my Power Generation Company’s Balance Sheet?
- How can I measure the efficacy of my cybersecurity programs?
The answer is DeRISK.
By marrying Cybersecurity Risk Quantification and Management (CRQM) with the operational nuances of the Electric Power Generation sectors, DeRISK stands as a testament to the future of secure, efficient, and resilient Electric Systems in the age of digital transformation.
How DeRISK for Electric Power Generation works
Data-driven cybersecurity insights
With more than 200 deployments of DeRISK in the Power Generation sector, DeNexus understands the intricacies of this asset class.
DeNexus' flagship platform, DeRISK, performs quantification and management of cyber risks at industrial facilities of energy producers.
DeRISK combines Inside-out data from various passive and active monitoring solutions with Outside-in information, threat intelligence and business data about the facility, its owner and its operator(s) and normalizes the data against common standards - NIST CSF, ISO 27001, and DNX CSF (DeNexus' proprietary Cyber Security Framework).
DeRISK Cyber Project Simulator
Using AI, ML, and Probabilistic Inference with operational metrics specific to each type of Power Generation plant assets, the ingested data is safely stored in the DeNexus Trusted Ecosystem powering DeRISK and delivering an enriched understanding of the overall risk profile.
DeRISK translates these multifaceted insights into quantifiable business impact, thus allowing for well-informed, strategic decision-making of cyber security investments facilitated by DeRISK Cyber Project Simulator which aligns organizational goals with risk tolerance.
This holistic approach provides an enhanced security posture that meets the high standards of multiple leading industry guidelines.
