Value of a BASELINE INVENTORY
Requirement for 2019 Calendar Year
As your operations become more connected and more complex, it is important to identify your assets and prioritize the risks of damaging attacks. Having a clear picture of the devices in your plant is a crucial first step towards defending against attacks. This visibility will also provide you with the power to quickly identify and troubleshoot assets, generate network diagrams, and proactively monitor your site’s inventory.
Completing the mandatory initial Baseline Inventory by December 31, 2019, will satisfy the Phase Zero (0) OT Asset Inventory requirement for 2019. Plant PO (funding) must be in place by June 30, 2019, to meet the requirement as dictated by P&G Information Security.
Compliance made easy
Address current inventory compliance requirements while reducing resource efforts for purchasing and implementation costs.
Make the most of your budget
By leveraging tools and processes built and tested specifically for manufacturers, experience a more efficient, cost-effective, and accurate solution than previously available.
Achieve more in less time
Avoid the need to manually locate assets when dealing with a cyber incident response request, which could result in containment delays and manufacturing downtime.
Added Value of a Cybersecurity Assessment
Optional for 2019 Calendar Year
Completing the initial Phase Zero Baseline Inventory alone increases visibility for OT assets but does not make your facility as secure and protected as it could be. Combining a Phase Zero Baseline Inventory with a Cybersecurity Assessment will help you better understand the risks to your operations. These assessments will provide valuable feedback to assist you in managing your systems by prioritizing critical issues and helping you make informed decisions regarding security, risk exposure, and overall system condition.
Taking a holistic approach to the security of your operations requires a close inspection of the systems, processes, and on-site vulnerabilities currently present. Having a fresh perspective of these vulnerabilities will provide the clarity needed to make the right decisions at the right time.
Mitigate Future Risk
By identifying shortcomings, understanding management roles and identifying gaps in your current CSA standings now, you can be confident that the decisions you make today will secure the future of your organization.
