Secure automation

Infrastructures that are becoming increasingly more digitized are also exposing weaknesses, making them more vulnerable. Knowing how to navigate through today's cyber security landscape is critical. And so is planning for a cyber secure future.

Cyber security for operative systems begins on the control level

The number of attacks on supply companies with critical infrastructures in the areas of water supply, tunnels, district heating, district cooling and energy is increasing significantly. As a key partner, it is your job to ensure greater cyber security.

Important: No supply security without cyber security!

The increasing need for energy as a result of the energy revolution, e-mobility, smart home scenarios and digital connectivity in supply chains and production are increasing the pressure on the operators of critical infrastructures to ensure secure and reliable operations with maximum availability in the future.

When it comes to ensuring reliable operations, simply optimizing systems and processes in the supply field is no longer enough. After all, digitalization is revealing more and more security weaknesses in the hardware and software for existing Internet-capable products. In this country, supply companies have long been a target of cyber attacks. In May 2020, three federal authorities together warned of possible threats.

Your competent partner for futuristic system security

Are you in the middle of a project or just starting one? Wherever you are, Saia Burgess Controls will support you in every phase of your project: when assessing the planned automation and IT infrastructure, assessing your own risks while taking into account the systems and data flows or planning specific measures and setting targets. When it comes to implementing technology in the operative field, cyber security begins on the control level. Saia Burgess Controls: We focus on the future: 

  • With products for automation, engineering, operating systems on site and suitable management systems with integrated cyber security
  • The products come equipped with all security features and offer maximum protection with role-based user accounts, password checks (password strength), limited validities, data encryption, the recording of events such as access, errors and attacks and much more.
  • They also include a cyber-secure PLC system with the latest future-proof generation of cryptographically secure Saia PCD controllers to meet current standards.
  • Modern software and hardware procedures for encrypting and signing programs and user data.
  • Various IT/OT and Fieldbus protocols via IP and serial interfaces can be combined as required (OPC-UA, MQTT, IT protocols, Modbus and Profinet as well as CAN)
  • Existing installations which can be updated to offer the functions of the IEC controller
  • The portfolio was expanded with cyber-secure HMI panels and measuring devices for gathering data in the field
  • Both the high-performance scalable Saia PCD Supervisor software platform which controls simple HVAC applications and company-wide automation systems for large infrastructure systems and building complexes

Cyber security for critical infrastructures, systems and properties.
