One of the Pioneers in Physical Layer Cybersecurity (PLCS)

Information Technology and the transfer of data entail for 80% of the day to day functionality in today’s world. This has created an immediate demand to keep our infrastructure, across every industry, effective and secure. This ultimately protects our communities and our way of life.

The world has already started responding to this. In fact billions of dollars are being spent to help develop strong protection to the ever changing cyber threat. This has resulted in enormous in-fluxes throughout the Cybersecurity market over the last 5 years.

The problem…

90% of these efforts are geared towards preventing a network security breach. (Malware, Phishing, Viruses, etc.) In other words, the targeted enemy fits the “hacker” profile.

This has created alternate forms to attack our Classified Infrastructure as well as our Critical Infrastructure. Physical Attacks, Unauthorized Monitoring, and Tapping of Classified Data has now surfaced as an effective tactic to succeed in crippling a Government Command, Corporation, or an entire City/State’s Critical Infrastructure.

This certainly pertains to power grids and any SCADA environments. Scary?

The Insider Threat

Although physical attacks on infrastructure can be an external threat, the typical culprit is an “Insider Threat”. Anything from a disgruntled employee, to a foreign nation, competitor paying your coworker, or maintenance personnel to hit you. It happens, trust us!

If there are unauthorized fiber taps on your Classified Backbones, how would you know?

A breached manhole and a Sawzall cut through a fiber optic critical cable servicing your City’s Emergency and or Traffic Signal networks? Are you alerted?

As one of the original pioneers of developing Physical Layer Cybersecurity (PLCS), VET is considered an elite Integrator in this space. VET is fully capable of Planning, Engineering, and Implementing Turn-Key PLCS solutions.
