Senior Business Consultant IT/OT Security

Operational Technology is all around us. All the products we buy, the food we consume, the energy we use, we all depend on it. In all these sectors, some of them are known as critical infrastructure, and critical processes are managed through operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) systems. Digital security of these systems is of increasing importance, as more and more OT systems are connected and controlled through IT systems. Moreover, cybercrime is growing in the world of critical infrastructure, and last but not least, nation-states using cyberattacks for espionage or even to sabotage critical infrastructure.

We offer multiple services that are tailored to the industrial sector and its specific requirements. First, our advisory services, for example, gap-analysis or risk assessments based on IEC 62443, IT & OT Site assessments, Threat modeling, a NIS compliance check, and a security maturity review. All these services are designed to support our customers to identify risks and improve their security resilience, no matter their current security maturity state. We also offer offensive services in penetration tests and Red Teaming assignments, both in IT and OT environments. With these services, we help our customers to validate their current security countermeasures, test their defensive capabilities, and discover possible unknown vulnerabilities. On top of these services, we also provide specific OT security training, offer a comprehensive IT/OT security awareness & behavior program, and perform OT security research. One notable example is the recent release of OTCAD, an Operational Technology Cyber Attack Database, that consists of a mapping between known OT-related cyber-attacks and MITRE’s ATT&CK framework for ICS.
