Industrial Cyber-Physical Security for Food & Beverage

Converged Security Solutions for the Prevention of Insider Threat and Bioterrorism

Securing our most important critical resource—the food supply chain—means correlating threats across underlying HR, IT, Physical Security and Operational Technology used in production and processing. AlertEnterprise links to specialized plant applications like MES, plant historians and demand management from ERP that can deliver information directly to production. Monitoring insider and contractor access to modifying batch recipes detects when the addition of a preservative has been suppressed, causing a contaminated batch to be produced.

Integrating seamlessly with SAP applications, AlertEnterprise software further prevents Insider Threat by automating background checks and risk analysis during the on-boarding and off-boarding process for employees and contractors.

Delivering true security requires a holistic solution across the entire food value chain, from sourcing to production to retail distribution. In addition, companies need detailed recordkeeping of plant maintenance and safety measures, along with quality checks and transparency with all suppliers—whether in their backyard or overseas.

Securing Workforce Identity and Access – An Insider Threat Use Case

A company we’ve named BigFood was dealing with a disgruntled production foreman “Tom.” Tom not only had physical access to the production floor, but was intimately familiar with the control system settings to configure recipes for the Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES).

AlertEnterprise security software’s real-time link to SAP SuccessFactors HCM provided critical real-time data that identified Tom’s history of workplace issues. When Tom accessed the plant area after his normal shift hours, AlertEnterprise software detected that he was making unusual changes to the production settings to eliminate the addition of preservatives. An alert was immediately sent to Security Operations staff as well as the Plant Manager. Incident prevented, with huge savings from avoided downtime and protection from loss of reputation to the company brand.
