Cybersecurity Consulting Services 

In this rapidly changing world, one place where momentous change is being felt is the industrial automation field. Thanks to the advent of big data, cloud computing, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Industry 4.0, and artificial intelligence, a digital transformation is underway that is changing every facet of how businesses operate. At the same time, increasing cyber threat landscape and vulnerabilities pose higher risks for safety and business continuity. In fact, OT cybersecurity is roughly a decade behind the maturity of IT security in developing security organizations, skilled resources planning, and so on. 

Yokogawa Cybersecurity Consulting Services help customers deploy proper security solutions for their plants to ensure safe operation while adapting to new technology for achieving higher efficiency and productivity. With wide experiences in providing industrial automation and services in greenfield and brownfield, Yokogawa security consultants and engineers have in depth knowledge with various security standards, frameworks, regulations and guidance: such as ISA/IEC 62443 series, ISO/IEC 27000 series, NIST CSF, NERC-CIP, GICSP, etc. 

Implementing and Maintaining Security Program 

Taking a lifecycle perspective, Yokogawa Security Program has developed the security program. The program combines over 100 years of expertise in industrial automation, best practices in cybersecurity architecture design, and plant operations knowledge to ensure safe and secure operation, which is the paramount priority for our customers and Yokogawa. This security program addresses cybersecurity risks for any industrial environment (incl. non-Yokogawa). By working together with customers Yokogawa identifies the required level of security, assess the risks they face, and tailor the security program to address the gap while following Industrial Standards and Guidelines. This results in a roadmap that enables the customer to implement cybersecurity measures where they need it most.
