Asset discovery is essential
Asset discovery is the process of passively detecting, scanning, and inventorying OT assets on an industrial OT network. It’s a form of passive network scanning that specifically focuses on non-IT assets and devices, such as industrial control systems, supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, and programmable logic controllers (PLCs).
Asset discovery typically involves the identification of IP addresses, port numbers, MAC addresses, and other network attributes of OT assets.
Without having a complete and up-to-date OT asset inventory, it becomes virtually impossible to effectively implement strong cyber security controls.
In this exercise we use in-house built tools to help us analyze the data collected. CSIS will be able to map out the network and come with practical recommendations regarding securing the industrial equipment. In the end of the assignment the customer will have a better overview of which devices there are present and how they communicate.
