Using Industrial Defender's OT cyber risk management platform, diverse Solutions Engineering will conduct thorough cybersecurity assessments for customers as part of their process hazard assessments, identifying and monitoring OT assets to detect irregularities and vulnerabilities within their networks.

FREMONT, CA: As cyberattacks, such as ransomware attacks persist in dominating the news cycle, there is an increasing concern about the safety of an oil, gas, or petrochemical company’s network if a malicious actor gains access to it. Thus, to improve cybersecurity in the oil, gas, and petrochemical industries, Industrial Defender, a trailblazer in Operational Technology (OT) security, partnered with Diverse Solutions Engineering, a leading engineering, procurement, and construction services firm.

“The recent and massive increase in cyberattacks–especially ransomware–targeting organizations across these vital industries is bringing new, physical safety concerns to light, as demonstrated by the growing focus on policy and compliance from the federal and local levels,” said Jim Crowley, CEO, Industrial Defender. “Our partnership with Diverse Solutions Engineering will provide customers in the oil, gas and petrochemical sectors with the confidence they need to ensure they are adhering to new and expanding regulations and, more importantly, putting safety first.”

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have recently announced new cybersecurity requirements, and the two corporations are collaborating to incorporate cybersecurity into safety evaluations.

“The lines between cybersecurity and physical security are increasingly blurring, bringing together what were once two disparate and siloed organizations within a business,” said Elliott Broughton, Senior Project Manager, Diverse Solutions Engineering. “With Industrial Defender’s longevity and expertise as the first in the OT cybersecurity market, customers can bridge that gap, safeguarding their OT networks and environments from cybersecurity mishaps that could have devastating safety consequences.”

Using Industrial Defender's OT cyber risk management platform, diverse Solutions Engineering will conduct thorough cybersecurity assessments for customers as part of their process hazard assessments, identifying and monitoring OT assets to detect irregularities and vulnerabilities within their networks. Oil, gas, and petrochemical companies will be able to implement core OT security policies with confidence owing to the findings of these audits.
