Cyber Security self-assessment toolkit announced

Industrial Defender is to distribute a control system security test for US Dept. of Homeland Security.

Cyber risk specialist Industrial Defender (ID) has just announced the availability of the US Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Control System Cyber Security Self-Assessment Tool (CS2SAT). DHS selected Industrial Defender as a licensed distributor of the CS2SAT, a software package that assesses the security (or the ‘cyber security posture’ in the DHS jargon) of control system and SCADA networks. The assessment tool was developed by the Idaho National Laboratory for the DHS’ National Cyber Security Division.

Sean McGurk, DHS Director of Control Systems Security noted, ‘The Control System Security Program is pleased to team with Industrial Defender in distributing the CS2SAT and working directly with asset owners to strengthen the cyber security posture of the nation’s critical infrastructure and key resources.’ ID president and CEO Brian Ahern added, ‘CS2SAT self assessment is a preliminary to comprehensive security assessment’ For a limited time, CS2SAT, a $399 value, will be offered free of charge to qualified asset owners.
