Wurldtech(TM) And Oil & Gas Industry Leader Shell Cooperate To Drive Cyber Security Improvements Throughout Infrastructure Supply Chain
Industrial Cyber Security Pioneer Provides Testing & Certification Solutions To Proactively Diagnose, Mitigate & Manage Cyber Risk Throughout Upstream & Downstream Operations
"We are very pleased to be working with Wurldtech, a partner clearly committed to the advancement of intelligent cyber security solutions for the oil industry with a proven track record of thought-leadership," said
The first step in this cooperation involves the adoption of Wurldtech's Achilles Satellite testing platform by Shell's internal DACA security team. The Satellite will be used throughout Shell's testing facilities and as a major part of ongoing cyber risk assessment activities to gain a greater level of visibility into the robustness of their current and future industrial automation networks. To extend this effort, Shell will also start to phase-in Wurldtech's globally recognized cyber security certification criteria into their vendor procurement requirements and factory acceptance tests. This will start with the introduction of
Finally, with patch management also being a major concern to operators of industrial automation networks, Wurldtech and Shell will combine resources to accelerate the development of next generation cyber risk management technologies. Driven by Wurldtech's Delphi database, the world's only source of vulnerability and threat analytics specific to the controls industry, the resulting solutions will provide significant advancements in today's risk mitigation strategies by integrating automated intelligence into existing infrastructure to remediate errors known to jeopardize process integrity as soon as the errors are identified.
"The security team at Shell has consistently demonstrated strong leadership and a proactive approach when it comes to protecting the reliability of their global infrastructure, and we are extremely excited to help raise the bar even further," said
