Network Security within a Converged Plantwide Ethernet Architecture

April 9, 2019

The prevailing trend in Industrial Automation and Control System (IACS) networking is the convergence of technology, specifically IACS operational technology (OT) with information technology (IT). Converged Plantwide Ethernet (CPwE) helps to enable IACS network and security technology and OT-IT persona convergence through the use of standard Ethernet, Internet Protocol (IP), network services, security services, and EtherNet/IP. A reliable and secure converged plant-wide IACS architecture helps to enable the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

Aerospace cybersecuirty- Bringing a zero-trust approach to aviation product network design

whitePaper | May 18, 2022

Modern aerospace products are moving into containerization and micro-services. Mounting connected internal micro-services patterns in a product segregates and segments the network to support a zero-trust network security approach. Having weak internal network security of the product allows malicious actors to exploit them and elevate privileges — denying users access, jamming signals, or even shutting them down. Such interference could cause major harm to aircraft safety and operations.

Security Operations Maturity Model

whitePaper | February 20, 2020

As the threat landscape continues to evolve, your cybersecurity efforts must follow suit. With your security operations center (SOC) at the core of your offense against threats, you must ensure that it can handle anything that comes its way. To be effective, you need to mature your SOC to stop threats early — before damage occurs. Whether your SOC is a virtual team of two to three or a 24x7 operation, maturing your security operations capabilities will help you achieve a faster mean time to detect (MTTD) and mean time to respond (MTTR) to cyberthreats. This white paper explores LogRhythm’s Security Operations Maturity Model (SOMM), which explains how to measure the effectiveness of your security operations. Through the model, you can learn how to mature your security operations capabilities, improving your resilience to cyberthreats.
