ICS SCADA Security Consultant

Industrial Control Systems (ICS) have been historically built to last for a long time while keeping their performance parameters at a high level. As a result of this, cybersecurity issues related to the manufactured and deployed systems were not strongly considered until recently. In the context of Industry 4.0, where the systems and components are more and more connected to each other and to the Internet, cyber-attack vectors have multiplied enormously. Security simply cannot be ignored anymore, also considering the high risks and impacts associated with these systems, as well as the organizations which are deploying and making use of them.

Secura supports multiple (international) customers that are depending on Operational Technology (OT). Secura offers technical assessments, IT site assessments, OT site assessments, training, threat modelling, security awareness, certification and audit services. We are active in the sectors: Energy/ Utility, Chemical Industry, Infra & Water, Food Production and Automotive.
