An ever-changing landscape

The future of cybersecurity in the energy sector

Increased connectivity—including the increasing significance of the industrial Internet of Things (IoT), supply chains, customers, and operations—brings new operational cybersecurity risks and threats that demand attention. The critical infrastructure sectors that GE Vernova’s products support are subject to an ever-changing cyber threat landscape. As such, GE Vernova continuously integrates end-to-end cybersecurity to help promote integrity throughout the product lifecycle.

GE Vernova has developed a product security program based on industry-leading standards—such as IEC 62443-2-4—to support the development of secure products across people, process, and technology and allows GE Vernova’s customers to continue to power the future.

Cybersecurity for the energy sector

Cybersecurity for energy and utilities reflects a global need to shield essential social structures. Utility cybersecurity—such as solutions from GE Vernova—can help guard against damages from local service disruption and supply chain issues with global impact. Financial loss from ransomware can also be devastating, making cybersecurity for energy and utilities a priority.

OT (operational technology) cybersecurity

Cybersecurity for energy and utilities is continually more complex. Operational technology (OT)—which runs energy system operations—is a prime target of cyber crime. Many utilities and plants collaborate with an expert to support OT cybersecurity with specialized skills and 24/7 performance. GE Vernova offers flexible solutions to advance cybersecurity in the energy sector and can meet your unique cybersecurity OT needs

Our security approach

GE Vernova has established a product security program driven by and tied to the NIST Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity (Version 1.1) and incorporates other leading industry practices—including NERC CIP, ISO 27001/2, IEC 62443-2-4, and NIS. The program is focused on reducing the cybersecurity risk associated with cyber-applicable products, enabling GE Vernova to be more vigilant towards emerging threats and continuously improve cybersecurity early on and throughout the product development lifecycle.

To accomplish this, GE Vernova has established key areas of a product security program from a programmatic level—including, but not limited to, designating Product Security Leads (PSLs), a defined product security program framework, a well-structured governance model, and product-level security controls (for example, remote access, access management, logging, and monitoring).
