Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) has launched the first digital dashboard designed to proactively monitor, measure and manage cyber security risk for control systems for refineries, power plants and other automated production sites.
The Honeywell Industrial Cyber Security Risk Manager, is designed to simplify the task of identifying areas of cyber security risk, providing real-time visibility, understanding and decision support required for action. It monitors and measures cyber security risk in multi-vendor industrial environments.
Risk Manager uses advanced technologies that translate complex cyber security indicators into clear measurements and key performance indicators (KPI), and provides essential information through an easy-to-use interface.
The intuitive workflow allows users to create customized risk notification alerts and perform detailed threat and vulnerability analysis so they can focus on managing risks that are most important for reliable plant operations.
“Industrial facilities have clearly become targets for cyber attacks. Safety and operational continuity demand a clear understanding of these serious, dynamic risks and a program to ensure that they remain within acceptable levels. While most organizations recognize this need, operational people often lack the expertise to properly assess and manage cyber risks,” said Sid Snitkin, vice president, ARC Advisory Group.
