GE provides hardware and software products to all the industries that form the core of critical infrastructure that moves and powers the world. GE's equipment and systems themselves generate 1/3 of the world's power and have a vested interested in providing for the resilience and security of this and other critical infrastructure we manufacture. We apply our technical expertise and industry domain knowledge in three vital areas:
- Trusted Computing
- Integrity Measurement
- Industrial control systems
To protect critical infrastructure, we’ve developed a security stack within our Edge operating systems that implements a secure chain-of-trust with defense-in-depth. It combines our trusted supply chain and trusted run-time to enable autonomic prevention, detection and remediation of cybersecurity incidents. And our cyber security research teams at GE Research have been leading efforts to develop advanced cyber protection technologies for critical infrastructure at large with a host of government and industry partners through government programs supported by the U.S. Department of Energy and Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). A key focus is strengthening cyber protections in the emerging age of quantum computing and enabling cyber protection systems that not only more rapidly detect cyber threats, but enable industrial systems to proactively neutralize them just like the human body's immune system automatically fights off viruses that invade the body.
