Case Study – Going the Extra Mile in OT Protection – From Ambition to Hard Work

The threat landscape for critical infrastructure in the utility sector has worsened this year with ransom attacks happening in OT and COVID-19 creating confusion and obstacles in daily operations. The case study presented is about a large utility company which started three years ago implementing consequently OT Monitoring and Vulnerability Management in its substations and generation facilities. After protecting its hydro and nuclear facilities they started to tackle more complex areas such as assessing and protecting its Smart Metering IIOT infrastructure, Wind and District Heating. Our client was the first utility company in Switzerland who went beyond standard OT monitoring towards far more complex facilities inside OT such as IIOT. Participants will get an introduction about their challenges and achievements during these activities.
