Optimizing cybersecurity posture improvements
with a 4 steps process

Our services include a comprehensive portfolio of methods and tools to quickly improve cybersecurity without the need to change your process. Based on major security frameworks such as NIST, NERC CIP, DoE, and IEC62443, our solutions lie on top of the industry standard security approach.

Our cybersecurity team works with you to identify the target outcomes in a security assessment workshop. The process starts with understanding the current situation, identifying threat scenarios, existing mitigation measures and risks. Risk reduction measures are then identified and grouped in a security roadmap. The solution can include various tools and processes focused on fast deployment and outage reduction. The system is then monitored for the system's life.
