New offerings designed to help utilities and manufacturers identify improvements in industrial control system security and security operations centers implement proven approaches for finding and stopping advanced attackers
Milpitas, California - Oct 8, 2014 – FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the leader in stopping today’s advanced cyber attacks, today announced two new security consulting services to help organizations improve their internal capabilities for defending against advanced threat actors.
The first new service, the Industrial Control System (ICS) Security Gap Assessment, is designed for utilities and manufacturers that use SCADA systems, which attackers often target for destructive purposes. The new offering assesses existing security processes for industrial control systems, identifies security flaws and provides specific recommendations to safeguard critical manufacturing infrastructure.
“Every organization faces unique security challenges – especially when it comes to those in industries that require protecting their manufacturing infrastructure,” said Kevin Mandia, SVP and COO at FireEye. “As more nations develop cyber capabilities, the private sector will increasingly become a target for threat actors that seek to disrupt their operations. This service offering draws on Mandiant’s experience responding to critical security incidents at manufacturing organizations around the world.”
The ICS Security Gap Assessment service provides industrial organizations a roadmap for improving the security of their ICS and SCADA systems based on a complete evaluation of their security program, including their incident response readiness and ICS architecture. Specifically, the ICS Security Gap Assessment is designed to help customers:
The second new service, Cyber Defense Center Development, addresses the challenges enterprises face as they seek to build out their own internal security operations program and incident response teams with best-in-class processes that go beyond the capabilities that are found in traditional security operations centers (SOCs).

The Cyber Defense Center Development service is designed to help organizations prepare for advanced threats by implementing processes and analysis techniques that we have observed to be effective in stopping some of the most advanced threat actors.”
Drawing on the intelligence and expertise that comes from responding to hundreds of security incidents every year, the Cyber Defense Center Development service helps customers achieve the following objectives:
