Federal Government OT Systems & Services

Definition

Building Management Systems(BMS)/Building Automation Systems (BAS) serve crucial roles in maintaining safe and effective operation of Federal Civilian facilities both at home and abroad. Yet, these systems are often the overlooked aspects of the security of the mission, regardless of whether that mission is an Embassy, NASA, a postal facility, or even a hospital.

Problem Statement

The interruption of any BMS can often impede mission critical operations. Disrupting these functions can bring a downstream impact to operations. Today, BMS have grown, increasingly connect to and are controlled via the internet, have remote access, and commonly use insecure protocols and legacy systems. Without adequate security controls, they can be uniquely vulnerable to cyber threats and can be used as a stepping stone into the rest of the OT network, sitting dormant until “trigger” time. Further compounding these issues are visibility limitations, as Federal Government in general struggles to know what assets they have – both domestically and on foreign soil.

Solution

To eliminate many of these core challenges, Claroty can assist Civilian agencies in applying OT-specific security.  Using the Claroty purpose-built OT security portfolio, you can 1) gain visibility and vulnerability insight into your building and campus BMS assets;  2) segment the network with least impact to the OT network, 3) secure access for staff and contractors, 4) maintain protection across assets by monitoring for any change to the devices, communication patterns, anomalous communications within each protocol, and misconfigurations, providing alerting and audit trails, and 5) extend existing IT security controls and governance to OT.

Operational technology (OT) systems across the U.S. Federal Government vary widely with tremendous diversity across vendor, age, protocols and more. Many are time-sensitive operations and mission critical to their Agency – be it NASA, NOAA, TSA, DoE Labs to USPS and beyond. All OT, BMS, IoT, and IoMT assets across these diverse missions must be considered as part of an overarching OT cyber security plan to ensure no weak links or cyber risk to the mission.

Problem Statement

The interruption of any OT function or asset has the potential to create risk or impede the mission operations if compromised.  Disrupting them can often bring downstream impact to operations. Legacy operating systems (OS), insecure protocols, unique communication patterns and other issues create unique challenges from those of IT.  Limited visibility to OT assets, increasing vulnerabilities – across manufacturers – inadequate security controls, and remote access all create new attack vectors. Beyond critical downtime and safety, an impact can also wield much broader, perhaps latent, damage. These systems can be used by adversaries as a steppingstone into the rest of the OT or even IT network, sitting dormant until ‘trigger’ time.

Solution

Claroty sees the full picture of OT to help protect Federal Civilian operations. Our solutions help you to identify OT systems, vulnerabilities in, and remediations for, the OT within these critical missions. We can help you automate asset inventories for operational systems, autonomously detect threats and vulnerabilities in these systems, provide full featured cyber risk management, recommend mitigations and automate micro-segmentation. These capabilities implemented on OT networks enforce zero-trust principles and improve the cyber resiliency and survivability of systems on these OT networks.

Today’s medical facilities – be they clinics, hospitals or laboratories, rely on connected, operational devices to deliver a variety of services such as MRIs, IV’s, Xray machines, and other medical devices collectively referred to as the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT). Whether operated in the U.S. or abroad, the effective and timely delivery of these services are reliant on IoMT as well as other IoT devices.

Problem Statement

Amid digital transformation, increasingly interconnected technology environments, and an evolving threat landscape, the cyber risks facing these healthcare systems are growing exponentially. And for clinics and hospitals that operate outside of the U.S., they are typically run on infrastructure the U.S. Government doesn’t control.  With U.S. government facilities more highly targeted by adversaries, the cyber risks may be even greater.

Solution

Claroty’s OT security portfolio helps the Federal medical community to 1) gain full visibility into all connected devices in your clinical environment, 2) integrate your existing IT tech stack and workflows with those of your IoMT, and 3) extend your existing IT security controls and governance into your clinical environment.
