Alarm, Alert & Response Management

for analysts, incident and response teams, operators, suppliers, leaders, and consultants.

Process Alarm Management and Response

U+2190.svg   Correlated Events   U+2192.svg

Security Alerts Management and Response

Both standards, the ISA18.2 and ISA/IEC-62443, share the similar objectives, and have a lot of things in common. These are to protect the same assets, preventing the same consequences of happening, and to respond quickly and efficiently. A few minutes can save a life or prevent a catastrophe. The analysis for decision-making process must be performed before installing and wrongly configuring alerts. The right criteria for generating alarms and alerts is required. IT approach is permanently failing to use the correct rationals, generating thousands of false alerts.

Process Alarm Management

The management of operations and production requires both models, workflows and information, on time, exact and precise. Besides ensuring the safety of industrial processes, it’s crucial to protect the health of those exposed to potential risks. This not only impacts the well-being of individuals, but also contributes to the company’s success.

Processes and security must be developed comprehensively coordinated and orchestrated together with the Cybersecurity Alert and Response Management.

Security Alerts Management

In recent decades, the escalating number of alert situations, accidents, and incidents in cybersecurity has become a critical issue. Consequently, a more comprehensive analysis is urgently needed.

Rationalization and an effective alert system – without false positives – that allows identifying the nature of events and states, facilitating on the part of operators, engineers, administrators and management, the evaluation and determination of the set of assertive decision-making.

Ensure the process stays within the predefined normal parameters. This helps in preventing detrimental effects on safety, environment, and costs. Moreover, it ensures the quality of the final product and avoids production limitations.
