Cybersecurity

Ensuring cybersecurity when all processes are automated and connected to a single network has become critical. Cyberthreats are not a new phenomenon, but over the last decade the significance of risks associated with them has multiplied and industrial cybersecurity risks have emerged. In the modern world, the requirements for automated process control systems have changed, they can no longer remain isolated from the outside world. Particular attention should be paid to the increasing role of automation solutions within the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) concept.
The motivations behind cyberattacks are diverse: financial benefits, desire to harm competitors, political pressure and other. Sometimes cyberattacks are committed for personal reasons by dissatisfied employees or contractors. Indeed, the damage from unauthorized penetration is significant. It is not only unplanned production stops and equipment breakdowns, but also serious reputational risk, leakage of confidential information, threat to life and health of people, an increased risk of accidents and even technogenic disasters.

Risk factors are following:

  • • weak overall cybersecurity culture;
  • • hardware and software loopholes;
  • • use of commercial IT solutions;
  • • human errors;
  • • insufficient qualification of employees;
  • • legal uncertainty.

Avandsis Group offers a comprehensive solution package and services to minimize cybersecurity risks:

  • • Risk assessment and services in design of automation systems that help you to identify the greatest risks, detect focus areas to mitigate these risks and apply the elements of network architecture that are necessary to minimize the risks associated with cyberthreats;

ACCESS CONTROL

Access control system (ACS) as part of an integrated security system along with video surveillance and security alarm is one of the most effective tools of protection against unauthorized entry of violators into protected territory and controlling access of employees to some zones and premises. The access control system provided by Avandsis Group ensures a high level of security of personnel and material valuables as well as an increase in the profitability of the enterprise.
The main possibilities and advantages of the designed ACS include:

  • • Control and restriction of access to the building or facility: the person without a certain access (card or badge identifiers) to the secured zone or the building is not able to enter it. In addition, the ACS monitors the repeated passes, so that entries of several persons using the same identifier are excluded.
  • • Protection of information and material valuables: ACS allows you to prevent thefts by both outsiders and personnel using electric door latches, electromagnetic and electromechanical locks that lock the door when person enters or leaves the room. Access back is possible only if there is an appropriate pass card. The ACS can be programmed to deny access to the building on weekends, in the evening or at night and to differentiate the access rights of employees to certain zones.
  • • Efficient monitoring: ACS system "monitors" all points of entry and exit and sends information to the dispatching center in real time, thus, allowing to remotely lock or open doors in case of emergency.
  • • Control of employee discipline and calculation of work hours: ACS allows you to easily track the time of employee check-in and check-out and their movement, therefore, excluding cases of data falsification. The ACS module makes it possible to compile an individual work schedule for each employee, excluding the unregulated work hours and considering overtime work according to the company overtime policy.
  • • Automation of registration and pass recording: ACS modules contain the possibility of staff check-in/out and automated issue of passes, which facilitates the work of personnel, minimizes labor costs for the preparation of time sheets, keeping staff records and issuing passes.
  • • Significant economic impact: automated equipment allows you to save on hiring personnel and security guards, correct wage distribution according to automatically recorded work hours, avoidance of the costs possible in case of loss or theft of information and material valuables.

We design ACS systems depending on the type and intended use of the protected facility and use the necessary equipment and components from the world’s leading manufacturing companies:

  • • boom barriers, bollards, tire killers;
  • • security screening equipment;
  • • metal detectors;

PERIMETER PROTECTION

The system of perimeter security and protection is a complex of engineering solutions that prevent the intrusion of violator into protected territory, damage to life and health of people, theft of material valuables ​​from the building or facility, etc.
In order to prevent various threats, Avandsis Group specialists design optimal perimeter protection and security systems that meet the set protection tasks. We select advanced equipment: sensors, antennas, detectors, power supplies, actuators, controllers and software from reliable manufacturers such as Magos, RBtec, Ubiquity, etc., and carefully analyze all the necessary factors and conditions of the protected territory: weather conditions (temperature, sun, wind, rain, snow), close location to habitats and migration routes of wild animals and birds, etc. When designing security systems, we also take into account and exclude the possibility of triggering a false alarm.

The choice of ways to detect the intrusion and tactics of perimeter protection of the facility is carried out by a team of Avandsis Group professionals who have large experience in solving tasks of any complexity. We offer you the following protection systems:
Infrared perimeter protection system transmits a signal when one of the infrared rays emitted from the transmitter is interrupted or when changes in the thermal background during motion in the protected territory are recorded;
Vibration perimeter protection system includes a sensor cable that generates and transmits a sound alarm when touched;
Vibration and acoustic perimeter protection system includes an acoustic sensor that detects vibration of the ground along the optical cable during motion;
Optoelectronic perimeter protection system includes detectors transmitting a signal when a zone with installed executive relay is crossed;
Radio wave perimeter protection system includes a pair of parallel cables that generate an electromagnetic field in between and transmit a signal when an object is detected in the field;
Radio beam perimeter protection system includes a transmitter and receiver that generate an electromagnetic field in elliptical shape and transmit signals when an object is detected in the field;
Radar-based perimeter protection system provides 24/7 all-weather protection of facilities and facilitates the detection of extraneous objects (people, land, air and sea transport, etc.) in a vast territory. The system is often used to ensure the antiterrorist security of strategic facilities, military and industrial complexes, airports and other critical objects. Using special software, the radar system is able not only to detect moving targets, but also to classify them according to the number, shape and type of the motion: a person or a group of people, a vehicle, a ship, a drone, an airplane, an area of ​​intensive motion, etc.; to determine the location, direction and speed of movement and to track routes of movement.
Perimeter security systems that use seismic sensors, such as fiber optic cables, vibration-sensitive “microphonic” cables (triboelectric transducer, electromagnetic, piezoelectric cables), long radio wave sensors (standing wave cables), magnetometric sensor elements, linear barometric pressure sensors and discrete magnetometric sensors, represent a seismic perimeter protection system which has the following advantages:

  • • underground sensor installation provides an effective camouflage;
  • • installed in the ground sensors allow you to protect the perimeter, where the installation of barriers, fences, etc. is not possible due to:
    • • climatic and geographic criteria - mountain slopes, river banks, forest tracts, etc.;
    • • aesthetic criteria - museum complexes, architectural monuments, historical sites, etc.;
  • • hidden installation of sensors provides an effective protection of the security system itself from intentional damage or sabotage.

Waterside protection and security systems are used to protect the water area and related facilities and include underwater and water surface detection systems of small vessels and swimmers-saboteurs. The designed systems are able to detect, bear, track and detain the violator in underwater and above the water. The system includes:

  • • thermal imagers of a circular view;
  • • sonar stations;
  • • rotary chambers;
  • • radar stations;
  • • volumetric and magnetometric detection means;
  • • engineering security structures.

To increase the effectiveness of perimeter protection, Avandsis Group successfully integrates the perimeter protection systems with security alarm and video surveillance systems.
