European Cyber Security for Critical Infrastructure
European critical infrastructure is under increased cyber attack following Russian war on Ukraine and urgently requires industry specific IT/OT security
According to the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity, in 2020, there were over 3,500 reported cyber-attacks against energy utilities across the EU, with the majority being ransomware attacks, increasing in numbers and intensity each year.

Solution in Focus for Energy Utilities
As OT and IT systems interact more with each other, this connectivity needs to be secured. Firewalls provides a good way to segregate OT assets into separate zones to keep them separate from the IT environment and only allow traffic from specified OT assets. For this, understanding of OT protocols and strict adherence to specfic OT devices is very important. Clavister’s Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) for industrial use provide the ideal solution for creating this OT/IT separation and allowing secure connectivity between OT and IT networks. Our firewalls are configured to be very strict on the specific devices that are allowed on the OT side preventing vulnerabilities to spread in the overall OT estate.
For a holistic OT/IT security, energy utilities providers should also look at defence-in-depth, or a layered security approach that uses multiple layers of security, for example dual-firewalls, Clavister’s firewalls complement existing security stack and help customers move towards layered network security.
