A new tool that allows users to conduct a cyber risk assessment to identify potential attacks and to document existing or planned countermeasures to estimate residual risk of a cyber-attack is now available.

The new tool, called CyberPHAx, released by safety and security provider, exida, allows a user to find potential holes in a system and fill the gaps before an attack.

“We live in an increasingly connected world, where it is now possible for a person behind a PC to take over a plant’s control system with ill intent,” said Iwan van Beurden, exida’s director of product development.

“CyberPHAx provides the ability to thoroughly conduct a Cyber Risk Assessment allowing you to identify potential weaknesses in your existing infrastructure and plan for additional countermeasures if necessary,” he said.
