Increasingly frequent malicious attacks are resulting in growing awareness of Industrial IT Security. What are the risks involved? What do we have to protect? How serious are the potential consequences?
We apply generic methods to risk assessment in industrial IT security, differentiating between industry-specific threat scenarios, damage categories and probabilities. Risk assessment aims at identifying the customer-specific risks.
Networking of industrial and office IT offers major potential for optimising production processes. However, it also requires a higher level of IT protection in industrial plants. While risks and related security measures have long been known and implemented in office IT, the threat scenarios and related protection measures in industrial IT often have yet to be customised to the individual conditions.

Risk assessment examines devices, equipment and systems for unpredictable risks.
