Chevron is one of the world’s largest energy companies. They have facilities around the globe dedicated to oil and natural gas exploration, refining fuels, and producing chemicals for the production of thousands of products. With an incredibly large and diverse operational ecosystem spanning many countries, languages, and cultures, Chevron’s cyber security challenges are immense.
Despite the necessity to conduct a risk assessment across all their sites, their cyber security team was limited in what they could do. After years of manual processes, they focused on an initiative to bring scalability and efficiency to their global cyber security program.
By standardizing reporting and automating processes for assessments, the team brought consistency to results and the ability to measure maturity improvements easier.
The team no longer has to rely on spreadsheets. With high-level dashboards, technical leaders can quickly and easily communicate the overall effectiveness of their risk management program.
Now they have the information to make confident decisions on where they should focus remediation efforts.
Team impact from cyber security assessments significantly narrowed. The OT teams were able to avoid meetings with cyber security teams and complete assessment questions at their own pace and on their own schedule.
When Chevron approached SecurityGate, they were looking for the right partner to help them with their initiative to bring scalability and efficiency to their OT/ICS risk management process.
Riding the wave of digital transformation, Chevron was able to scale their cyber security efforts by enabling facility owners around the globe to contribute.
Since all efforts were now being managed within the same platform, and scaled across their facilities, Chevron reduced their assessment time by a whopping 57%.
When the COVID-19 pandemic unexpectedly threw the world into chaos early in 2020, it turned out to be a perfect use-case test of Chevron’s deployment of the SecurityGate 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.
