GE's Commitment to Cyber Security
Over the last decade, the proliferation of cyber threats against critical infrastructure has made cyber security a central concern for industrial automation and control system users. These strategic attacks are aimed at disrupting industrial activity for monetary, competitive, political or social gain, or personal revenge.
In the age of the Industrial internet, where companies seek new levels of performance and productivity by connecting machines, data, insight, and people, securing control system against these cyber threats is more important than ever. Faced with this growing risk, organizations are partnering with solutions providers who understand the unique characteristics of the industrial environment and the evolving security landscape.
At GE, we are working diligently to protect our company, our assets, our employees and our customers, using a risk-based approach to balance the benefits of open connectivity, productivity enhancements, and Operational Technology (OT) security. We work with customers, industry working groups and standards bodies, government agencies, and the security research community to continually improve the security of industrial control systems and global infrastructure. We are committed to maintaining the integrity, availability, and confidentiality of customer systems and data.
To do that, we are enhancing all our products not only to meet the security requirements of today’s connected industry, but also to provide more information, more securely and help protect data and processes from attacks and unauthorized access.
