Our world is digitised, networked and connected. Artificial intelligence and advanced data-sharing provide many benefits, but they can also make your organisation vulnerable to attack. Resilience against cyberattack is critical. We can help.

Product security has never been more important

Connected devices and the vast amounts of data they generate create opportunities and risks for organisations – from manufacturing and testing to installation and service. 

A security breach can result in operational downtime and/or data loss, as well as affect safety, life-cycle costs and your reputation – any one of which can seriously impact customer loyalty and your bottom line.

As organisations expand their digital footprint, it becomes imperative to protect the availability, integrity and confidentiality of their systems. Cybersecurity threats must be taken seriously and met proactively with a system-wide defensive approach specific to organisational needs.

We recognise that no protection method is completely secure. A “defence in depth” mechanism that is effective today may not be effective tomorrow because the ways and means of cyberattacks constantly change. This is why administrators of industrial control system networks must be ever-alert to changes in cybersecurity and work to prevent any potential vulnerabilities. 


Taking the lead in cybersecurity

There are more mobile smart devices than people in the world. Imagine the potential when digital intelligence is fully integrated into machines, buildings, homes and vehicles.

Not only do we employ artificial intelligence and advanced machinery in our facilities, we also help our customers do the same. Cybersecurity is at the core of our “secure by design” philosophy, and it’s embedded in all the Intelligent Power products and platforms we bring to market.

Our secure development approach helps us manage cybersecurity risks in our products through the entire product life-cycle – from threat modelling, requirements analysis implementation and verification to ongoing maintenance.

The importance of validating connected products with a common global standard

As more manufacturers and industries build and deploy smart IIoT devices, the security of systems becomes ever more important and difficult to manage. Read how a common global cybersecurity standard can help save on downtime and lost revenues.

Unique new Cyber-SHIP Lab in the University of Plymouth

Eaton is excited to partner with the University of Plymouth on the Cyber-Ship lab project aiming to improve security of the marine industry where cybersecurity must be foundational.

“With our “secure-by-design” philosophy, we apply our broad domain and industry knowledge to design and develop products and solutions with cybersecurity built in from the very start. Through education, research and our partnership with the University of Plymouth, we’re dedicated to continuously evolving our own standards and the standards across the industry to ensure confidentiality, integrity and availability for safer, more reliable systems.”
