2018 Critical Infrastructure Risk Assessment

August 31, 2018

Parsons began this effort to explore the state of cybersecurity risk in critical infrastructure facilities with a simple question. The cyber threat has undoubtedly converged – both information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) environments are being attacked. But, to what degree have solutions to this two-pronged threat actually converged? Parsons is committed to shedding light on the stark differences between IT and OT cyber threats and implications. IT cyber-attacks are fundamentally tied to data, and the theft and nefarious use of stolen information. These risks are now well understood, following countless high-profile attacks on the likes of Sony, Equifax, Target and many other household
names.

Industrial Internet of Thing

whitePaper | January 2, 2020

The brief report provides a positioning of developments in the area referred to as Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) – loosely interpreting this as the industrial developments associated with the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT in turn describes the extension of the application of internet communications beyond computers and networked devices to also include the networking of everyday objects. In the context of industrial operations these objects are typically equipment, products and raw materials.
