Cyber-attacks are on the rise, and the water treatment sector is a prime target. Unisys StealthTM is designed to protect critical infrastructure in a flexible, non-disruptive manner.

Make water systems less vulnerable to attack and help prevent the introduction of viruses and worms that may disrupt filtration, distribution, or water treatment. With Unisys Stealth, elements of the critical water infrastructure, including mobile applications in the field, can be made invisible to attackers.

Stealth for Water Treatment

  1. 1. EXECUTIVE OVERVIEW Keep Water Supplies Safe from Cyber Threats DON’T BE A TARGET. GO DARK WITH UNISYS STEALTH.
  2. 2. Executive Overview2 Zero Incidents: Your Goal. Our Mission. To provide safe water for public use, water distribution and treatment utilities have heavily invested in automated systems to improve reliability, safety, and to meet ever-stricter regulatory demands. These modernized systems are increasingly dependent on Remote Telemetry Units (RTUs), Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition systems (SCADA). These systems are critical to not just the monitoring and efficient distribution of our water supply, but also are critical in areas such as water filtration and chlorine, ammonia, and fluoride dosing. But these components are in the cross-hairs of Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) and many other cyber-threats. Primary targets include: 1) ICS/SCADA and related RTUs. These systems make up nearly seven percent of the entire SCADA installed base.1 This amounts to hundreds of thousands of targeted water control units. As demand and greater water conservation and treatment technologies improve, water utilities will deploy even more ICS/SCADA/RTUs. 1 Frost & Sullivan, Strategic Analysis of the Global SCADA Market, March 2013 2) Command and control centers. These remote units and controls are routed through central command centers at most utilities. However, the communication to and from these field units is over a variety of mediums: radio, wireless, and Ethernet connections to the centers’ Human- Machine Interfaces (HMIs). How can water treatment facilities strengthen mission- critical security, reduce costs, and increase agility— all at the same time? With Unisys Stealth™, you can: Go invisible. Make servers, devices, and other endpoints dark and undetectable to hackers and unauthorized users inside and outside your enterprise. Isolate segments of your data center based on user identity. Define and control access to mission-critical systems and information based on need-to-know access. Secure data-in-motion. Protect data with point-to-point encryption. Consolidate. Reduce reliance on physical IT infrastructure. Scale and adapt. Upgrade legacy systems, easily meet emerging needs and compliance requirements with agile, software-based security. Keep Critical Infrastructure Secure
  3. 3. Executive Overview3 STEALTH COMMUNITIES OF INTEREST Stop Cyber Assaults Before They Happen Unisys Stealth takes a radically different approach to addressing security concerns by making ICS/ SCADA/RTU endpoints and the command and control center network invisible to unauthorized users and by securing data-in-motion across any network. This is how Stealth can help water utilities Get to Zero Incidents. By creating highly-trusted Communities of Interest (COI), Stealth is designed to allow only authorized users to access devices, applications, or systems critical to water supplies and water treatment facilities. In addition to strengthening mission- critical protection, water treatment utilities can reduce infrastructure costs by safely modernizing their industrial controls and software with one unified security solution. And as regulatory mandates change, Stealth can deliver the agility utilities need without requiring costly upgrades or extensive reconfiguration. Why Stealth Now? Unisys Stealth is the innovative, mission-critical security that water utilities need to help maintain reliability, safety, and security: No operational disruption. Stealth works with existing firewall, intrusion detection, and other security systems with easy installation so you can upgrade your systems without compromising security. Reduces risk. Make RTU and ICS/SCADA endpoints invisible. Isolate critical systems from the rest of the enterprise. Tighten access control based on user identity. Protect data-in-motion with high-level encryption. Facilitates compliance. Stealth can help achieve compliance with the Executive Order on Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity, and other regulatory requirements and recommendations. Reduces costs. Protect the water utility enterprise, including customer data, accounting, and distribution and treatment with one cost-effective security solution. Improves agility. Stealth allows for quick, easy changes to accommodate rapidly evolving regulatory requirements or mission/business needs.
