Article By : EE Times India

Siemens will support CLP India’s efforts to bolster cyber security at its power plant by detecting threats and minimising the risk of advanced cyber-attacks.

Siemens is set to deploy its cyber security solution to help protect CLP India's power plant automation system.

Siemens said it will implement a cyber security solution for power plant automation at the Paguthan, Gujarat plant of CLP India, the Mumbai-based wholly-owned subsidiary of CLP Holdings, which is one of the largest investor-owned power businesses in Asia.

The cyber security solution being implemented by Siemens will detect threats and minimise the risk of cyber-attacks. The solution detects, analyses and raises alarms of the threats that move laterally from Information Technology (IT) to Operational Technology (OT) networks. The solution also includes dedicated endpoint protection to prohibit execution of malicious applications, according to the company.

Siemens has a portfolio of cyber security solutions for critical infrastructure, power and industrial control systems, which conform to the latest international standards, including NERC-CIP (North American Electric Reliability Corp. critical infrastructure protection) and VGB, the European technical association for power and heat generation.
