Fedco ICS Security Assurance service is covering the Core Activities of ICS Security Assurance Project to the client that required this service. We can do full ICS security audit and assessment (by using Non Destructive approach – without Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing) or partial ICS security assessment (with the selected ICS environment object, such as DCS only, SCADA only, etc.). With more stringent requirement and agreement with the client, we can also cover the ICS security audit and assessment (full or partial) by integrating the activities with the Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (but sure this option should go through the detail and careful walk through prior to agreement and execution).
