Airbus demos deployable SOC and Keelback Net cyber sensor at FIC
Airbus Defence and Space demoed its deployable tactical SOC (Security Operation Centre) and its Keelback Net cyber sensor at the International Cyber Security Forum (FIC) which took place earlier this week.
The tactical SOC detects and responds to cyber threats on all terrains, to permanently improve security posture.
The cyber sensor for detection and investigation, which provides information to the SOC, is currently being qualified by the National Cyber Security Agency of France (Anssi). With both the SOC and the sensor, Airbus Defence and Space supplies a complete national cyber defence solution.
Organisations today face a growing number of sophisticated attacks specially designed to steal sensitive data. For a more efficient response to this kind of attack, Airbus Defence and Space has developed the SOC, deployable on all terrains and adaptable to networks requiring protection. It consists of air-portable cases that can be deployed on different sites and securely interconnected via VPN.
The Keelback Net cyber sensor constantly monitors data traffic, identifies and detects threats, analyses stealthy characteristic signs of a malware and instantly raises an alarm if an attack is suspected. The alarm is immediately qualified by Airbus Defence and Space experts using a continually updated knowledge database. It is then handled in accordance with notification and response scenarios established in close cooperation with the customer.
Airbus Defence and Space experts held two workshops at FIC 2017. On Wednesday, 25 January, they showed how to develop a SOC 2.0, highlighting that the SOC of the future will integrate a 360-degree view of risks, relying on threat intelligence, to allow in-depth understanding and improved anticipation of threats for optimal detection, plus 'Securing Plant 4.0' on how the plant of the future is connected and more interactive in its business dealings (focused on how to secure the plant and the data it shares).
The CyberSecurity entity of Airbus Defence and Space supplies businesses, critical national infrastructures and governmental and defence organisations with security products and services to detect, analyse and respond to sophisticated cyber attacks.
