As traditional industrial automation and other safety-critical industries are in the middle of digital transformation, it is reasonable to recognize the importance of security to safety and reliability. The combination of highly connected machinery and potentially vulnerable legacy systems creates an environment where large-scale cyberattacks are made possible, thus jeopardizing the reliability and physical safety of an industrial environment.

Nixu’s experience in Safety & Reliability covers industrial environments in industries such as oil & gas, electricity generation, nuclear and conventional, energy distribution, component/Product manufacturing and maritime. Our primary goal is to make your digital transformation successful by supporting you at all stages of your strategy; from acquiring new products, to ensuring that critical ICS functions remain intact while supporting the required connectivity to other functions. We also work with international organizations such as IAEA in order to develop and share best cybersecurity practices.

With us, you can be sure that the security of your environment, be it adding new machinery or applications to existing environment or building one from scratch, will be done right, enabling true safety & reliability.

ICS Security Assessments & Red Teaming

Be it evaluation of your defensive capabilities or delivery of a new industrial environment, we will help you with testing the security controls of your ICS environment as well as your capability to react to a security incident. Depending on the scope, our services vary from ICS-environment security assessments as part of a desktop exercise to state-sponsored attack simulations on supply-critical utilities.

SCADA hardening

SCADA systems are the heart of industrial environments and are therefore a sweet spot for an attacker. Our role is to provide you with the capabilities to withstand a cybersecurity attack without compromising the core processes of your environment. Our services include technical and process-related projects to ensure a sustainable result for your organization.

Vendor security requirements

As the industrial internet gains momentum, Nixu will support you in ensuring that the innovations created by your vendors do not jeopardize the safety and continuity of your production environment. We will help you to request vendors for security product standards, maintenance, and remote access capabilities to meet your industry best practices and standards. Depending on our client’s industry, we utilize the most recognized security standards and recommendations such as IEC62443, NIST, IAEA, ISO27002, NERC CIP, and more.

Collaborator security audit

The Collaborator Security Audit Service provides customers possibility to verify that security status of their partners and collaborators does not create unacceptable risks, the contractual requirements for security are followed and that the processes and security governance of collaborators is sound and according to industry best practices.
