GE has announced the availability of its CyberSentry Security Event Manager (SEM), a cybersecurity management and monitoring system specifically designed to help guard substation power system assets from issues or outages occurring as a result of malicious attacks or human error.

"Cybersecurity has become a concern for any business that uses advanced computing and communications technology, such as utility and energy intensive industrial companies," says Bala Vinayagam, marketing director of grid automation at GE’s Digital Energy business.

“CyberSentry SEM ensures that changes to the configuration of a protection and control system are flagged and investigated," Vinayagam continues. "It also provides users with a detailed report of what changes have been made and how to resolve the cybersecurity issue at hand.”

According to GE, CyberSentry SEM continuously monitors the protection and control system for configuration changes and cybersecurity issues. If a problem is detected, the system provides alerts using its Syslog technology. CyberSentry SEM also can make legacy GE systems compliant to today’s cybersecurity regulations and standards, the company adds.
