Cyber-defense for critical infrastructure including factories, plants, utilities & hospitals

TOKYO, Sept. 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NTT Security Corporation (Head Office: Chiyoda-Ku, Tokyo; CEO: Jun Sawada), the specialized security company of NTT Group, has launched "IT/OT Integrated Security Services". The new services will be taken to market globally through the NTT Group companies, Dimension Data, NTT Communications and NTT DATA, forming part of its suite of integrated services to enable successful digital transformation initiatives for its clients.

Companies are increasingly working towards IT/OT (Operational Technology) alignment. OT systems, when connected to the internet, streamline business operations by advanced supply chain management, realization of mass customization and improvement of customer experience as well as find new intelligence employing IoT (the Internet of Things) and Big Data analytics. As a result, IT/OT convergence is exposing everything, including critical infrastructure (such as electricity, gas, water) and industrial control systems (such as factories, transportation, and logistics), to traditional and OT threats. Meanwhile, cyberattacks and cybersecurity incidents on these infrastructures are also increasing, which spans ransomware infections like WannaCry(1) to cyberweapon strikes like Stuxnet(2) and CrashOverride(3).

Jun Sawada, CEO at NTT Security says: "In the era of IoT, cybersecurity incidents can cause huge impact and damage on enterprise business operations and society. Therefore, in addition to conventional cybersecurity measures to protect information assets, OT Security measures to protect critical assets and ensure business continuity must also be considered as part of a continuous approach to cybersecurity and risk management."

NTT Security provides "IT/OT Integrated Security Services" based on its strength in Global Threat Intelligence and Cyber Threat Advanced Analytics accumulated through global operations.

"IT/OT Integrated Security Services" are delivered via a combination of both Consulting Services (CS) and Managed Security Services (MSS). Consulting Services (CS) visualize components and potential risks of an industrial control system, and provides effective and efficient security measures. Managed Security Service (MSS) provides proactive defense for industrial control system by continuously monitoring, detecting and blocking a cyberattack.

It became extremely prevalent in May 2017.

(2) Stuxnet
Malware which executes targeted attacks founded in Iran in 2010. It is known for halting the control system of Iran nuclear facilities. It has been said that it was developed by a sophisticated and complicated technology that infects via a network or a USB memory and exploits multiple vulnerabilities of the OS.

(3) CrashOverride
Malware that executes targeted attacks used in the Ukraine transmission facilities attack in 2016. Hundreds of thousands of households suffered power outages.
