Honeywell introduces Industrial Cyber Security Risk Manager

April 21, 2015 – Honeywell Process Solutions launched Industrial Cyber Security Risk Manager, a digital dashboard designed to proactively monitor, measure and manage cyber security risk for control systems for refineries, power plants and other automated production sites throughout the world that are at increasing risk of cyber attacks.

The 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.

Honeywell has included proprietary cyber protection software for more than10 years with its leading process automation solutions including Experion process controls, which are used at industrial sites such as refineries, chemical plants, gas processing units, power plants, mines and mills around the world. During that time, the Honeywell Industrial Cyber Security group has delivered more than 1,000 industrial cyber security projects globally.

Risk Manager monitors plant assets within and across all security zones of a plant, including third-party systems. By understanding security zones, Risk Manager is aligned with ISA 62443 and is able to calculate accurate risk scores. Risk Manager’s real-time measurement of risk is in line with industry standard risk management methodologies so that risk scores can be used consistently and accurately throughout a corporation’s risk and governance efforts. Risk Manager is the latest addition to Honeywell’s end-to-end portfolio of professional and managed services for industrial environments.

 

“Industrial processors are increasingly challenged to understand their cyber security risks,” said Jeff Zindel, global business leader Cyber Security, HPS. “And many times, they don’t know what to do with the data they are provided or what to do if an incident occurs. Risk Manager changes that. It gives guidance on the potential impact of threats and vulnerabilities as well as possible resolutions, making it easier to manage cyber security risks.”

“With Risk Manager, industrial customers don’t need to be cyber security experts,” said Zindel. “The easy-to-use interface allows users to prioritize and focus efforts on managing risks that are most important for reliable plant operations, protecting against vulnerabilities and threats such as insecure network and system configurations, rogue devices, intrusion attempts, malware, and the list goes on.”
