TÜV Rheinland launched its global Industrial Cybersecurity Centre of Excellence (CoE) based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The Centre of Excellence will address the cybersecurity needs of its industrial clients such as manufacturing companies, plant operators, energy and utility companies, transportation and transit system operators to secure their operational technology landscape.
In the evolving digitalization of markets across all businesses, there is a need and demand for deep industrial security skills and expertise, which this Centre of Excellence will be able to address.
Under the Global Centre of Excellence, the first Operational Technology (OT) Security Lab based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia will serve as the regional hub for showcasing industrial cybersecurity technology, knowledge and client consultations.
The Operational Technology Security Lab will provide a safe, controlled environment for clients to experience scenario-based simulations to test and demonstrate industrial systems vulnerabilities and cybersecurity threats.
“Combining our expertise in industrial services and operational technology security in our Centre of Excellence, we are one of the few organizations developing deep capabilities and offering this level of cybersecurity expertise to clients concerned about the safety and security of their operations,” said Frank Luzsicza, executive vice president, at TÜV Rheinland.
The facility will have equipment to showcase industrial manufacturing processes generating real-time industrial data, which will be integrated with technologies that detect threats and secure industrial facilities.
“The OT Security lab is a unique and significant step to serve the needs of our clients. Using a combination of training sessions, pilots, demonstrations, threat research and cyber-attack simulations, the Operational Technology Security Lab will help our clients stay ahead of industrial cyber threats,” said Urmez Daver, global head for industrial cybersecurity at the Centre of Excellence.
