When Chevron approached SecurityGate.io, they were looking for the right partner to help them:
Riding the wave of digital transformation, Chevron was able to decentralize cybersecurity efforts and enable each facility owner around the globe to run their piece of the program. Since all efforts were now being managed within the same platform, and using the same scalable processes, Chevron gained:
By standardizing reporting and automating processes for assessments, the team brought consistency to results and the ability to measure maturity improvements easier.
For all stakeholders, including the benefits of being able to understand risk and measure program effectiveness with a high-level view, as well as zooming in to detailed views of each facility.
Team impact from cybersecurity assessments was greatly narrowed. The OT teams were able to avoid meetings with cybersecurity teams and complete assessment questions at their own pace and on their own schedule.
As said before, Chevron’s risk management and cybersecurity teams value the success of bringing scalability and efficiency to global cybersecurity in a variety of ways. As a result of this new found efficiency, Chevron was able to reduce their assessment time by a whopping 57%!
Ultimately, the final measure of their success is shown by their leadership team’s response in confirming they not only receive the right information needed to make decisions but most importantly, they trust the data.
When the COVID-19 pandemic unexpectedly the the world into chaos early in 2020, it turned out to be a perfect use-case test of Chevron’s deployment of the SecurityGate.io platform. Because of the scalable processes and ability to conduct cybersecurity assessments remotely, Chevron didn’t miss a beat as the entire world saw cyber attacks rapidly increase.
