HIMA SECURITY STRATEGY
Today, industrial plants are more at risk than ever before. Just a few years ago it was enough for plants to be functionally safe. However, the reality of today presents new challenges for facilities: plants now have to be protected against cyber attacks.HIMA offers high quality safety products for industrial automation. As security is a prerequisite for functional safety HIMA also sets a strong focus on security in its organization, products, solutions and services. It is not feasible to foresee all use cases (and misuse) of generic products. HIMA therefore assumes that not all vulnerabilities can be detected during the secure development process. The goal is to achieve and to maintain a high level of security and robustness of HIMA products and solutions. To ensure this, it is essential to establish a lively exchange with the security community – mainly customers, integrators and end users – but also security scientists, hackers etc.
WHAT IS PSIRT?
HIMA PSIRT is a central, interdisciplinary team at HIMA Paul Hildebrandt, managing potential security vulnerabilities in HIMA products and solutions.
The team consists of security and product specialists. HIMA is grateful for all feedback on potential flaws, weak points or vulnerabilities forwarded to our specialists. The PSIRT investigates, offers mitigating measures and workarounds and, if possible, fixes vulnerabilities in a reasonable time coordinated with the relevant functional safety implications.
HIMA PSIRT coordinates and maintains communication with everyone involved, both in-house and externally, so that it can implement an appropriate response to any security related issues identified
