EY launches a global IoT/OT Security Lab

EY has launched an Internet of Things/Operational Technology (IoT/OT) security lab embedded within the EY wavespace flagship in Warsaw, to help clients stay ahead of emerging threats.

The lab allows clients to prototype cyber risk defence and IoT solutions for industrial critical infrastructure such as power grids, transportation systems, utilities networks and more in a test environment. The facility provides the ability to prototype and test OT security solutions in a lab-created simulation of the client's control system environment.

EY global advisory cybersecurity leader Paul van Kessel said: “The continued proliferation of digital technology across industries means that along with huge advances in efficiencies and productivity, the cyber threats have increased exponentially.”

The lab's technical facilities include an OT environment to simulate industrial processes and a demonstration environment with a workshop and training area.

The security tools and systems include industrial firewalls, behavioural and signature-based intrusion detection systems, asset management and configuration control, which help to design and test clients' target OT security operations centre.

EY EMEIA IoT/OT security leader Piotr Ciepiela added: "Critical infrastructure encompasses oil and gas, power and utilities and also manufacturing, pharmaceutical, transportation and other sectors that are essential for a nation to function properly. We truly believe that collaboration and co-innovation with technology vendors will greatly enhance the infusion of security and innovation in the industrial automation and IoT world."
