Today’s IT operations are complex and constantly evolving. How do you optimize performance and risk management? We say: make IT operators the owners of risk. And give them state-of-the-art analytics to manage it. This way, issues are handled as soon as they happen, rather than being picked up in periodic audits. It’s a powerful new way to build resilience into your organization.
KPMG’s solution automates control monitoring for OT cyber controls by applying tried and trusted control analytics and fine-tunes them to your needs. Automated risk ratings prioritize the most important issues, freeing up staff time. And by agreeing windows for managing exceptions, you operationalize your risk appetite. Most importantly, your business gets ownership and visibility of IT risk.
KPMG’s solution comes with ready-to-use implementation packs for specific areas, such as SAP landscape security and IT security in operational environments (such as manufacturing and production sites).
The solution runs on KPMG’s Digital Risk Platform, which is designed by KPMG and built and operated by Microsoft on their Azure cloud. Standard interfaces are available to the relevant IT systems, such as SAP and ForeScout, to run the control analytics against the operational IT data.
