The New Industrial Security Consulting Service from Pilz

How do you protect machinery against cyber attacks, misuse by operators, or manipulation? In the future, Industrial Security will be an important component of the EC Declaration of Conformity. The new Industrial Security Consulting Service from Pilz is your solution. Their experts analyse your risk with regard to security vulnerabilities on the machine, ad create an appropriate concept for greater cyber security, plus increased employee protection and machine availability. 

ISCS – Industrial Security Consulting Service

Machine manufacturers and operators can only achieve comprehensive machinery safety with Industrial Security measures. These protect your machinery against cyber attacks, misuse by operators or manipulation, and are required by the Machinery Regulation for CE compliance. But how great is the risk of attacks to individual machinery, what might be the effects on health and safety at work and productivity, and which measures are sensible for reducing security vulnerabilities?
This is exactly where the Industrial Security Consulting Service from Pilz comes in: We analyse your risk with regard to security vulnerabilities on the machine, assess the individual hazard and likelihood of occurrence by levels, put together appropriate solution steps and check the measures taken. The ISCS helps to increase Cyber Security and makes sure that you correctly implement normative and legal specifications and are able to mitigate and avoid security incidents on the machine.

Four steps to a secure machine in accordance with Industrial Security:

The Industrial Security Consulting Service is made up of four modules that build on one another. After performing the individual steps, a regular re-evaluation of the Industrial Security status of the machinery is required in accordance with the moving target principle, in order to continuously counteract the latest cyber attack methods or vulnerabilities.
