ICS Network & Dataflow Diagrams

Undocumented connections to unauthorized and unmanaged assets can severely compromise the security of an industrial control system (ICS) network (also known as a process control network (PCN) or SCADA network). Therefore, the first step in assessing cybersecurity of an ICS is to create an accurate map of these networks, the devices connected to them and normal or expected data flows. In most industrial facilities these networks have expanded and evolved over many years resulting in incomplete or inaccurate documentation. aeSolutions can help organizations develop or update these diagrams using a combination of physical assessment and passive network discovery. For efficiency, often times this effort is coupled with an ICS Asset Inventory and/or a Cybersecurity Vulnerability Assessment.
