The Sectrio Advantage

OT and IoT systems are essential when it comes to the research, production, supply chain management, and distribution activities in the pharmaceutical industry. With the growing dependency and the need for precision manufacturing in this industry, these systems must be shielded from the threat of cyberattacks. The dire consequences of even the slightest change in chemical composition or process or even the timing could cost lives, contaminate batches, impact reputation, and decrease customer confidence.

In unprecedented times such as the COVID-19 pandemic, a record number of cyberattacks were logged targeting critical pharmaceutical manufacturers, researchers, and distributors at scale. Such cases and attempts to compromise the integrity, availability, or reliability of such systems are only expected to intensify in the days ahead.

Sectrio can help ensure the availability, reliability, and integrity of systems for pharmaceutical manufacturers. Our cybersecurity offerings can secure your assets, operations, and output.

Challenges

Logic Corruption

Logic Corruption

Manipulation in PLC and
Logic commands could impact
the quality of your
end product
Patch Management

Patch Management

Critical systems that require
a patch or an software upgrade may
often take time. This could pose
significant risk due to a lack
of compensatory measures
Remote Access

Remote Access

The lack of Zero Trust
approach could enable hackers
and insider threats to
infiltrate into the network
and traverse laterally.
Bricked devices and harm to life

Bricked Devices and
harm
to life

Industrial Equipment often have
a
longer shelf life and are
often expensive.
A hacker could
suspend operations via a malware
or could disable Safety
Instrumented Systems
(SIS) that
may cause harm to life.
