Honeywell Releases Cyber Insights To Identify Cybersecurity Threats, Vulnerabilities
Honeywell released its operational technology (OT) cybersecurity solution called Honeywell Forge Cybersecurity+ — Cyber Insights on Wednesday, to assist customers in improving the availability, reliability and safety of their industrial control systems and operations.
Cyber Insights is designed to integrate information from multiple OT data to provide customers with actionable insights into their facility’s cybersecurity vulnerabilities and threats, allowing them to manage their compliance strategy and helping reduce their overall cybersecurity risks, according to the statement.
Companies with OT systems face challenges in obtaining the necessary information to reduce the likelihood and impact of cyberattacks and to stay compliant with standards and regulations that may be applicable to them.
These challenges are compounded by the shortage of available cybersecurity skills in operational technology, with a cybersecurity workforce gap of more than 3.4 million people. Despite attempts to implement various solutions, success is difficult due to the tools’ complexity, the overwhelming volume of security data generated, and the lack of solutions specifically designed for OT.
“Organisations should leverage technology to address worker shortages, while at the same time gaining clear visibility into their OT facilities’ cybersecurity posture to help them make faster decisions and reduce cyber risk,” said Michael Ruiz, vice president and general manager of Honeywell OT Cybersecurity Innovation.
