Your equipment has a lot to tell you.

With Siemens Plant Data Services, you collect and analyze equipment data, learning first-hand how your equipment and systems are performing. You’ll learn where energy is wasted and how much you can save. You’ll understand how your equipment wears so you can make corrections sooner and avoid downtime. More importantly, you’ll know where gaps in your cyber security protection exist and what to do about it.

Plant Security Services

Take a proactive approach to defending your industrial control systems against cyber threats. Let’s face it. Automation, connectivity, and transparency are great. They increase efficiency and allow people who’ve never met in person to communicate on a regular basis. But, there’s a downside. Connectivity opens you up to threats from cyber hackers – who might be inside or outside your organization.

You can relax. Siemens has your back. Here’s how we work:

-Our experts study your current security posture, identifying potential risks and vulnerabilities through technical evaluation and threat analysis

-We implement all identified measures to mitigate risk by training your employees, deploying new technology, enhancing security processes, and establishing new security guidelines

-The Siemens Cyber Security Operations Center (CSOC) provides continuous updates and comprehensive monitoring to adapt quickly to changing threats and to provide a transparent view of your plant’s security status
