Strengthening the Security Structure of a Water Treatment Facility
2023-02-09 @ 18:00 – 19:00 UTC+0
Learn how a modern security structure can be strengthened in a water treatment facility without the need for new hardware or network changes. You’ll learn how to implement secure remote access to SCADA systems and HMIs, opening the door to allow vendors and internal employees alike to perform remote maintenance and troubleshooting.
During this session we’ll demonstrate how having a strong security structure can be quickly and efficiently achieved under a Zero Trust Architecture.
Topics We’ll Address
→ How to reach compliance of cyber insurance and government mandates
→ How to enable per-user access to eliminate shared credentials
→ How to enforce multi-factor authentication on non-participating systems
→ How to invoke least privilege access, ensuring the right level of access for the right users
→ How to provide simple, secure access to any user without a client or VPN
→ How to implement a detailed audit trail for complete visibility of who did what, when, and for how long
Watch The Recording
Learn how to enable seamless access to critical systems for all users while enhancing security without a VPN or network changes.
The Modern Security Structure of a Water Treatment Facility
With the increasing risk of cyberattacks, municipalities and other local government bodies urgently need to eliminate shared credentials, implement appropriate access controls, and establish secure remote access. This is especially critical as these systems require 24/7 uptime and require quick, secure access for maintenance and troubleshooting.
Legacy solutions such as VPNs and TeamViewer do not provide the necessary access controls required by government entities and cyber insurance policies, such as multi-factor authentication, least privilege access, and measures to prevent lateral traversal within a network.
Replacing legacy solutions with Agilicus’ Zero Trust Architecture enables operators and managers to keep critical systems isolated from the public internet and monitor all changes made with granular auditing. Enable authentication and fine-grained authorisation while leveraging existing credentials for any user to gain access.
