The Port of Long Beach is one of the world’s busiest seaports and a leading gateway for trade between Asia and the United States. The Port chose the cross-functional team to evaluate BOTH the physical and logical security at the Port’s Joint Command and Control Center. E.K. conducted a NIST-based cybersecurity assessment of its network and application systems.
Taking a product agnostic approach, the Port’s Cyber Team developed a evaluation framework that included assets deployed throughout the Port’s ecosystem, including hardware infrastructure, identity management, communication paths and physical security controls.
- Penetration testing of the Port’s networks
- Validating and enhancing hardware configurations and the costs associated with this activity
- security modifications required for the various security applications utilized by POLB
- The development of a comprehensive cyber security training program for security personnel and select stakeholders.
- Planned rollout of the developed cyber security standard to ensure compliance
The program’s goal: seamless domain awareness across the physical and logical horizon.
