Cybersecurity threat landscape is vast. Many IT professionals face challenges in creating a Cyber Security Awareness Program and training employees on all the different threats facing their organization. PFES can help build the right program for you. Our instructors are industry experts and will educate employees on the latest threats along with the dos and don’ts for both Enterprise and Production-ICS networks.
Secure Remote Access
The PFES Cybersecurity experts will design, implement, and test secure interactive remote access using industry best practices. Our Cybersecurity experts will leverage two-factor authentication, secure trust zones (utilizing least privilege access control lists), intermediate systems, remote access monitoring, and alerting to ensure your environment has a state-of-the-art, defense-in-depth approach applied for all remote access.
In the event of an outage, your organization needs to have confidence in the ability to recover quickly in production environments. PFES can securely design and implement disaster recovery solutions to minimize the impact to your ICS network and quickly return you to production.
Ransomware attacks are happening more often, becoming more sophisticated, and impacting operations within critical infrastructure. Having the correct controls and tools in place can mean the difference in preventing, detecting, and responding to ransomware attacks quickly and mitigating impact to operations.
