An ever-changing landscape

The future of cybersecurity in the energy sector

Increased connectivity brings new operational cybersecurity risks and threats. The critical infrastructure sectors GE Gas Power supports are subject to an ever-changing cyber threat landscape, including the Industrial Internet of Things (IoT), supply chain, customers, and operations. As such, GE Gas Power continuously integrates end-to-end cybersecurity to help ensure integrity throughout the product lifecycle.

GE Gas Power bases our product security programs on industry-leading standards, such as IEC 62443. We support engineering and configuration of secure products across people, process, and technology. Advanced solutions and modular offerings provide solutions customers need, when they need them. Our team’s expertise and reliance on best practices can help improve energy security, resilience, and compliance.

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 Gas Power, 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 Gas Power offers flexible solutions to advance cybersecurity in the energy sector, and can meet your unique cybersecurity OT needs. 

Our security approach

GE Gas Power 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, and NIS. To accomplish this, GE Gas Power has established key areas of a product security program from a programmatic level, including, but not limited to, designating Product Security Leads (PSL), a defined product security program framework, a well-structured governance model, and product-level security controls (e.g., remote access, access management, logging and monitoring).

Security advisories and bulletins

GE Gas Power’s products operate in a highly dynamic operating environment which is marked by threats that are constantly changing and evolving. As such, it is critical to maintain product security throughout the product lifecycle of marketed products, including components sourced from third party suppliers. 

Our security advisories for GE products help let our customers know about technical improvements, maintenance practices, or safety concerns regarding GE supplied equipment.
