Use Cases Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity refers to the protection practice for the hardware, software, and data from being destroyed, altered or leaked by accidental or malicious reasons to ensure the system runs continuously and the network service is not interrupted. An effective cybersecurity methodology has multiple levels of protection spread across the computers, networks, programs, and data that one intends to remain secure.  For an effective defense from cyber-attacks, the people, processes, and technology in any organization should complement one another.

The cybersecurity can be divided into physical security and logical security. Physical safety refers to the physical protection of system equipment and related facilities from damage and loss. Logical security includes integrity, confidentiality, and availability of information.

SCADA Cyber Security Vulnerability Assessment
SCADA Cyber Security Vulnerability Assessment
A U.S. power company employed regularly-recurring audits of various controls, systems and programs. However, when it came to a SCADA-based cyber security vulnerability assessment, the in-house audit team did not possess the specific combination of process control experience and cyber security risks. They realized they required a third-party expert with a unique combination of knowledge of the two worlds.
COPA-DATA
COPA-DATA
From as early as 1991 COPA-DATA realized a need to find a long-term solution for copy protection – one that encompassed its corporate philosophy of openness and flexibility. Requirements included compatibility with Windows and a trouble-free experience for the customer, who should be able to transfer the key to new or modified equipment, and who is supported with the difficulties that can be encountered in an industrial environment – such as network connections being unavailable or defective.
Keeping Patient Information Secure for SCL Health
Keeping Patient Information Secure for SCL Health
SCL Health’s IT department faced unique challenges when planning their security. In addition to securing thousands of endpoints spread across three states, they also have to be compliant with HIPAA regulations. HIPAA, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, sets rules for keeping patient information secure. If a healthcare organisation fails to secure sensitive patient information, they can face large fines and legal action. A major security goal was to make sure there were no malicious threats operating in their network. A singular locally installed anti-virus programme cannot protect against all threats. Advanced threats are smart enough to lie dormant for long periods of time and can bypass a specific antivirus engine’s vulnerabilities. SCL needed a solution that would provide stronger assurance of detecting all types of threats and that would help them show their efforts to maintain compliance with HIPAA.
