Energy giant Fortum rolls out RIPE OT security program to fleet of 400 power plants

In 2014, energy giant Fortum selected The Langner Group’s RIPE Program to provide a robust, comprehensive program for managing the cyber security of its nuclear power plants. Fortum was so impressed by the positive results they achieved in their most critical facility that they have selected the RIPE Program to be their OT security standard for their nearly 400 power generation facilities in seven countries.

Fortum’s cyber security manager Tomas Nystrom on the decision to go global with RIPE:

“By implementing the RIPE Program, we created a standardized documentation system with consistently applied solutions, clear policies, standard operating procedures, and training. Most importantly, we had a way to measure our progress on every element. In doing so, we not only identified and corrected configuration issues, we are now able to quickly troubleshoot and perform root cause analyses, saving us hundreds of hours of engineering time.”
