Tenable Partners with CyberNB to Secure Canada’s Critical Infrastructure

Columbia, MD (June 10, 2021) -- Tenable®, Inc., the Cyber Exposure company, today announced it has become the first vulnerability management vendor to partner with CyberNB’s Critical Infrastructure Security Operations Center (CI-SOC) to increase the resilience and security of Canada’s critical infrastructure. Through the strategic partnership, Tenable will bring its risk-based vulnerability management and industrial security solutions to the CI-SOC, empowering critical infrastructure stakeholders to see, predict and reduce cybersecurity risk.

 

CI-SOC brings together data from multiple critical infrastructure owners and operators across all sectors. By leveraging Tenable’s industry-leading solutions within the CI-SOC, including Tenable.io and Tenable.ot, stakeholders gain deep visibility and analytics across this massive data set to understand their cyber risk posture. In addition, CyberNB members can now use Tenable’s technology to identify vulnerabilities, prioritize those with the greatest business impact and act quickly to reduce risk. The partnership will also facilitate information sharing between the private and public sectors, including best practices for protecting critical infrastructure against rising security threats.

 

“Our reliance on critical infrastructure continues to surge, bringing increased threats for owners and operators to manage. With a limited cybersecurity workforce, they are looking for smarter, more automated ways to understand and ultimately reduce their risk,” said Marty Edwards, vice president of OT security, Tenable. “We’re excited to partner with CyberNB to bring Tenable’s risk-based insights and predictive technologies to Canada’s critical infrastructure operators, enabling them to understand where they’re exposed, to what extent and how to most effectively reduce their risk.”

 

“In the cyber solutions market, we were looking to partner with a visionary leader that could help us paint a picture of the IT risks for small, medium and large businesses,” said Sheldon Shaw, VP of Innovation and Infrastructure at CyberNB. “We see the relationship with Tenable as a key capstone as we move forward.”

  • Incidents often required resources beyond the community’s capabilities; 
  • Responders often were challenged to identify detailed specifics about the load;
  • Incidents caused costly disruption to the supply chain, such as closure of critical trucking routes, while materials were identified and tactical mitigation was performed.
