Many industries are relying heavily on industrial control systems (ICS) and digital controls systems (DCS) in their day-to-day operations.  With the move to more IP based systems, there is an increased risk of compromise of these control systems which can potentially have a significant impact not only on production but safety too. 


At Iron Spear, we have significant experience in working with companies to understand the current risks, as well as map out plans to evolve the production networks into more reliable and secure islands. This allows for data to still be used by the business, yet prevent external unauthorized control.  We work with our clients to build programs that align to industry standards, be it NERC CIP, NIST 800-82, ISA99, or any other ICS specific standard. We provide ongoing ICS audit services and maturity assessments to numerous clients around the world and bring valuable insight into the health of the industrial cyber security program. 


Industries in which we have ICS cyber security experience include: 

  • Power Generation – Solar, Wind, Hydro, Nuclear 

  • Chemical Manufacturing 

  • Transport & Logistics 

  • Oil & Gas 

  • Mining
