OREANDA-NEWS. The professionals of TATNEFT Company took part in the conference "Cybersecurity ASU TP 2016: Time to Act Together", held in Innopolis from October 10 to 12.

A landmark event of the professional forum was a joint statement of the "Kaspersky Lab" and JSC "TANECO" about the opening of the first in Russia Response  Centre to computer incidents at the industrial and critical important facilities: ICS-CERT project.

The main objective of the ICS-CERT “Kaspersky Lab"  is to coordinate the actions of the manufacturers of automation systems, owners and operators of industrial facilities, as well as researchers in the field of information security. CERT will collect the information on the identified vulnerabilities, incidents taking place and urgent threats and on this basis will make recommendations for the protection of industrial and critical infrastructure facilities. All the data, except confidential ones will be made available for the public in the anonymous form and only after the manufacturers of industrial systems release updated versions covering the discovered vulnerabilities.

“At TATNEFT Company they pay great attention to information security and ensuring effective protection for the automated control systems. A comprehensive approach to this issue contributed to the expansion of cooperation with the "Kaspersky Lab,"  said Rustam Pavlov, Director of the Business Service Center of PJSC TATNEFT.
