Using exSILentia Cyber for Cybersecurity Risk Assessments

Recording Date: June 2023

A risk-based approach is key for effectively managing cybersecurity for Industrial Control Systems (ICS). It helps to identify critical areas requiring mitigation and focus limited resources on the most critical issues. The ISA/IEC 62443-3-2 standard provides the formal process for conducting these risk assessments in a two-staged approach (initial and detailed). Over the years as exida completed many cybersecurity risk assessments, it became clear that a tool which could efficiently record and export the results of the study was critical to the successful completion of the assessments. To meet this need, the exSILentia Cyber tool was developed as a new set of modules on the exSILentia v4 platform. In this webinar we will demonstrate how the exSILentia cyber tool can be used to improve the effectiveness of the cybersecurity risk assessment process and streamline the reporting process.
