Cybersecurity for Pipelines
Protecting pipeline management against cyber risks
As is the case with all networked value chains in the process industry, data transmission in pipeline monitoring and leak detection is subject to many cyber risks. To ensure the function of pipeline monitoring systems and to protect the entire pipeline infrastructure, cybersecurity is a crucial part of leak detection systems.
Together with partners, KROHNE offers innovative technologies and concepts for the secure operation of pipelines with the PipePatrol Cybersecurity solution. This includes system hardening during the design and production of the various PipePatrol modules, the use of powerful firewall filter technologies as well as advanced procedures such as "Deep Packet Inspection" (DPI) for communication channels. A system-specific update and patch management by way of service level agreements also ensures maximum security. This provides pipeline operators with the security infrastructure they need to protect their pipeline management from cyber attacks.
