Critical Infrastructure Cyber Security

The critical infrastructure is an ongoing target for cyber-attacks. If a severe assault was successful, it could have a country-wide impact.


Disruption, Manipulation, and Shut Down

The energy and utility sectors, telecommunications, public sector, the health service, transport, financial systems, and essential industries are all vulnerable to cyber-attacks.

Each is threatened by disruption, manipulation, and even shut down in the face of increasingly sophisticated and targeted attacks.

Protecting Your Infrastructure

To protect organisations in the critical infrastructure, we provide a range of solutions. Our activity includes the safeguarding of industrial SCADA control systems for physical devices as well as IT systems and data protection.

Advanced Firewall solutions

Offering complete application and data control along with superior intrusion prevention, file analysis and bespoke CDS provided capabilities, with no loss of network performance.

Continued scanning of internal systems

Constant scanning for known weaknesses and vulnerabilities, along with regular, automated patching of servers and workstations.

Drone Detection & Mitigation

Protect your infrastructure from the growing threat of drones with A.I.M.

Monitoring of internal systems

For unauthorised changes or access to servers, workstations, users, groups, shares and mailboxes.


Improve your OT security controls with tailored consulting, training and design & integration services.


During the preparatory stage, our activity covers a comprehensive range of elements including asset mapping, assessment of enterprise readiness, an audit trail of control devices, and personnel risk assessment.


Modelling cyber-attacks using critical infrastructure scenarios can help us to predict vulnerabilities and outcomes. We learn from previous cyber-attacks such as the Ukrainian power outages, targeting of nuclear power stations across the US, and the hacking of the SWIFT global bank messaging system in order to adapt and better equip us for possible future cyber-attacks.


Our preventative activity includes network activity monitoring, anomaly and threat detection, security management controls, protection of electronic security perimeters, and controller integrity validation and incident detection.


Additional Services

CDS brings extensive experience in the development and implementation of cyber and data security solutions to protect your data and privacy.

Incident Response

Response and containment in the event of an attack, helping to identify possible entry points, identify stolen data, clean up affected systems and offer clear, concise guidance on what measures to take post-event to assist in prevention of any future compromises.

Assessments & Testing

Simply installing a cyber and privacy solution and not reviewing, monitoring or updating regularly introduces and allows an unnecessary level of risk. CDS are experts in assessing and testing systems to ensure they are working to include penetration testing, vulnerability assessments, remote monitoring and wireless network assessments.

ARM – Alert, Record, Monitor

Knowing what is happening on any network at any point in time is of paramount importance. Without continued alerting, recording and monitoring of events, network activity and system changes, how could you possibly know a breach has occurred or a security risk exists?

Privacy & GDPR

Do you know where your data is stored, where it's going and who has access to it? CDS provide protection and privacy of personal, confidential and commercially sensitive data regardless of where this is stored, be that onboard a vessel, corporate offices or mobile devices.

Counter Measures

Eavesdropping and spying are increasingly more prevalent for high profile and / or wealthy businesses or individuals. CDS thwarts unwanted cybercrime through comprehensive TSCM electronic counter-measures services including the detection of visual and listening surveillance devices and countersurveillance software for accessing computing and mobile devices.

Anti-Drone Protection

As the number of drones grows exponentially, so do the challenges. The wide reach of drone surveillance technology increases the risk of Cyber Security attack and the threat to privacy. A.I.M is the only anti-drone system that detects, guards and protects high-value assets against the new and growing threat of drones.
