It is often stated that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. ABB can provide best in class cyber security solutions to users of 800xA systems, and even assist these users to maintain the solutions over its lifecycle with a wide offering of services. However, a significant part of the responsibility to keep a site secure still rests on the shoulders of the users of the control system. For example, it does not matter how good of a firewall you have, if new employees at site have not been given suitable training or if the wrong persons have access to the server room.
ABB has the possibility to assist site owners & operators in the process of developing best in class policies. The policies will be based on best practices, guidelines & regulations such as IEC62443, NERC-CIP, and NIST SP 800-82.
