ICS/OT Cyber Security Assessment


An Industrial Control System/Operational Technology security assessment is important to ensure the safety and security of devices or systems that are used to control, manage, monitor and/or otherwise impact operational processes and activities. An assessment simulates the likelihood of an attacker reaching the control centre from an external and internal perspective and can help identify vulnerabilities and prioritize remediation efforts to reduce risk.

What you’ll get:
  • A Global Industrial Cyber Security Professional (GICSP) certified tester ensuring production-safe testing

  • 100% manual testing ensuring no impact on the OT environment

  • OT-specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) related to ICS (industrial control systems)

  • An assessment of the network segmentation between IT and OT

  • A white-box configuration review of the OT environment to maximize the discovery of vulnerabilities and misconfigurations while minimizing impact

Why conduct an ICS/OT Cyber Security Assessment?

Understand accessibility in and out of your OT environment
  • Identify networking gaps that could lead to OT access

Majority of OT devices do not have security controls by default
  • Gain insight into OT-specific compensating controls where IT controls

Prevent a devastating outage
  • Not all attackers are looking for ransom. Identify the likelihood of a severe outage

Determine the likelihood of a successful OT attack

By completing technical and non-technical checks, Packetlabs helps you determine if your OT environment is at risk. We analyze your security posture and make recommendations to improve it so that you can better withstand potential data breaches in future years!
