In a world that is increasingly fast-moving, unpredictable and full of opportunities, our customers are facing big challenges. In their daily operation, they not only rely on their Information Technology (IT), but on their Operational Technology (OT) as well.
Today the OT/IoT systems have become a target for malicious hackers. That is why Thales combines both in its unique Cyber Defense approach. As IT-OT-IoT integrator we know all about critical infrastructures and how to cyber secure them.
Anyone who wants to do business with the Dutch Defense, in any way, must comply with strict security requirements. These so called General Security Requirements for Defense Orders (ABDO) were revised in 2017. Thales is one of the contributors in the development of these requirements. But what does this mean for your organization?
As one of the world's largest suppliers of defense and Cyber Defense services, we know all about ABDO and how to translate the security requirements to your organisation.
Our Cyber Defense Topics
Cloud and Datacenters
By the year 2020, Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to comprise more than 30 billion connected devices. Such an explosion of data calls for specific skills with respect to data and analytics. But this also raises questions on how to cyber secure al this data.
Do you know how secure your datacenter is?
Do you have access to the log files of your data?
Do you have a clear understanding of the security of your data in the cloud
Technology is becoming more and more complex. New technologies and solutions such as IoT and Cloud must be integrated with existing systems in order to realize efficient, effective and reliable IT solutions.
Do you know if your legacy systems have been exposed to a cyber-attack?
Do you know how cyber secure your legacy systems are?
Are you able to protect your legacy systems against cyber-attacks?
People vs Tech
People are often seen as the weakest link in cyber defense. On one hand this means that a human error can cause great damage in the case of a cyber-attack. On the other, good cyber security relies on the best security specialists.
Do you have a clear understanding of the vulnerabilities in your IT landscape?
Do you have the skills on premise to cope with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning?
Is your organization able to respond properly to a cyber-attack?
From design to operational management, our trusted and globally recognized expertise provides in-house monitoring with a 24/7 Cyber Security Operations Center (CSOC) to secure infrastructures by analysing threats, generate early warnings, prepare incident mitigation and manage crises.
