Guidelines for Initial Security Measures


Companies must consider numerous factors in order to develop their own industrial security measures. The defense-in-depth concept offers valuable insight into how the vulnerabilities in question should be analyzed for risks. To achieve comprehensive security, all levels of protection must be included in equal measure.

Building on this, guidelines and measures must be defined for each area. These help to guarantee a high level of security to all parties involved without limiting productivity. In this way, industrial security becomes one of the central tasks of management.

These organizational measures include definition of responsibilities, awareness training for production personnel, and handling of identified/eliminated vulnerabilities while taking the production process into consideration.

To support companies in implementing appropriate measures, Siemens Operational Guidelines have devised general recommendations for organizational and technical measures. These are adapted based on new threats and available measures in order to provide our customers with the most up-to-date information possible.

Of course, we are also happy to assist you in selecting and obtaining security solutions suited to your requirements in the scope that you desire.
