Detecting Life-Threatening Attacks in Water Treatment Plants
Security risks with water utilities are a growing concern. For instance, one operational technology (OT) security operations center (SOC) team uses real-time utility cybersecurity monitoring to quickly detect, locate, and shut down contaminated water pipes during a security or operational incident at a water treatment plant.
Utility Cybersecurity Use Cases
Operational technology (OT) systems form the foundation of the infrastructure that power our daily lives. As more threat actors seek to exploit new gaps in the convergence of IT and OT, it’s crucial for utility security teams to secure their networks for critical infrastructure resilience and performance.
Within utilities, our dependency on safe water makes water an important asset essential to livelihood and crucial to protect. Learn more about how SOCs monitoring water and utility critical infrastructure systems can be successful with the following use cases.
Track the Progression of an Attack on Critical Infrastructure in Real Time
In this demo (inspired by real-life events!), watch an OT security operations center (SOC) use the LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform to quickly detect a life-threatening cyberattack on a water treatment plant. As the hacker attempts to change the chemicals in the water supply, can the security team respond before it’s too late?
Attack Alerts at a Remote Location
Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) and Programmable Logical Controllers (PLCs) in a SCADA system are vulnerable targets for a cyberattack. See how LogRhythm AI Engine triggers alarms and protect water critical infrastructure.
