In order to benefit from the operational advantages from applying Smart Grid, Assistive Programs must take proper precautions to protect the information flow and control signals regarding the Smart Grid. During the transition phase where Smart Grid elements and old system components exist together, the cyber security concerns are particularly related to energy sector which is considered one of the most important industrial security targets. In addition, the vulnerability of energy control systems continues to increase as these enterprise systems are increasingly connected with partners and other internet-based resources. Therefore, the Smart Grid is exposed to various types of risks, including the typical risks listed below.

  • Infringement of unauthorized access and control systems
  • Interruption and manipulation of control data / signals
  • Distributed / coordinated attacks on system components
  • Interruption and modification of data monitoring
  • Intentional and unintentional human intervention
  • Corruption in application software
  • Third party intervention (partner, vendor)

Cyber Security is an important component of an Operator’s Smart Grid distribution and Service Reliability strategy. A Cyber Security program for the Smart Grid should not be thought afterwards installation, but it should be a vital part of planning and designing related to installing a Smart Grid. A proper planned Cyber Security strategy will create a safe environment that still provides efficiency and operational flexibility which is vital for implementing new Operational systems successfully. For this reason, in order to fully benefit from the Smart Grid, a comprehensive, integrated, well monitored and frequently updated Cyber Security program must be applied.

Teknoser provides a mature cyber security program and solutions that can be applied to Smart Energy Grids as its cyber security solutions.

Cyber SecurIty In IndustrIal ManufacturIng

Industry 4.0 revolution is being realized as we speak. This revolution requires significant new investments in the development of smart production systems which can respond to changes in the supply chain and the factory itself, as well as changes in customer demands in real-time. Smart manufacturing; It is based on building a bridge between digital and physical environments through Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, and the increased use of cloud systems is an important component for the wider breakthrough towards Industry 4.0, with improvements in these digital environments using data analysis and machine learning.

While these technologies have been in development for some time, their integration with industrial systems pose new challenges and potential cyber security breaches as well. Recent lessons show that there are inevitable, costly Cyber Security breaches. Today, the integration of sophisticated smart manufacturing technologies greatly increases the scope of attacks, in the shape of industrial espionage and sabotage. The potential consequences of these attacks range from financial damage and loss of manufacturing abilities to injuries, from loss of life to disastrous results across the country.

With Teknoser Cyber Security Solutions, we analyze the hardships faced by those who want to secure their smart production systems and we develop solutions to prevent security breaches that can be faced in digital transformation phase.

Cyber SecurIty In CIty Networks

The aim of Smart Cities is to dynamically optimize cities to offer a better life quality to citizens through the application of information and communication technology (ICT). The areas where cities can become smarter are vast: it is an evolution of “Connected Cities” with a scale data being exchanged getting in a widespread manner. Increasing data exchange and controlling multiple services and assets lead to a higher level of automation in cities. As several critical services are linked to each other, the need for cybersecurity increases to protect the data exchange, privacy, and citizens’ health and safety. However, there are currently no harmonized guidelines or standards for modeling these.

Smart public transport (ATT) systems are important elements in Smart Cities. The Smart Public Transport operator manages local public transport by implementing ICT to improve its service levels and efficiency of the transport system. ATT operators also exchange data with each other to provide a better integrated service.

Safe water supply and effective wastewater management are vital elements of modern economies. To better manage the growing demand, water authorities around the world are investing heavily in automation and digitalization for water treatment, wastewater management, desalination, storage and distribution.

Increased connectivity within the water sector has led to an increase in cybersecurity and OT vulnerabilities. The operations in this sector require real-time visibility to ensure that there are no cybersecurity threats or process faults with a zero-interruption policy, and a variety of potential impacts ranging from overflowing dams to water pollution, ultimate system failures to loss of human life.

In 2016, hackers breached a regional US water company by taking control of hundreds of programmable logic controllers (PLCs) that manage the flow of water treatment chemicals and endangered thousands of lives. This incident led to the US Water Infrastructure Act 2018, which, among others, highlighted the inherent vulnerability of critical water infrastructure worldwide.

Therefore, maintaining real-time situational awareness and operational reliability and the ability to independently detect any operational anomalies are extremely important. Teknoser Cyber ​​Security solutions provides operators a chance to visualize the infrastructure in real-time with a most unique, and close to real-life situation and to intervene in cyber incidents in critical infrastructures to protect critical assets and the communities they serve.
