The chemical industry is one of the largest sectors in the Netherlands. Companies in this sector produce and process raw materials and products through chemical changes to these substances. These form all kinds of (semi-) products with which SMEs and other companies can make end products. Safety is essential for these organizations. Hudson Cybertec helps chemical companies make and keep their factories and production plants cyber secure.


Chemical companies have been much discussed recently. The security risks are related to terrorism. For this it is important that the large chemical clusters in, for example, the port of Rotterdam, Limburg and the Zeeland delta are well protected against cyberattacks. If the digital resilience of chemical companies is not in order, incidents can have major consequences for society as a whole. This is why Hudson Cybertec is committed to the digital resilience of chemical companies and society. With years of experience in cybersecurity for operational technology (OT) under its belt, Hudson Cybertec offers cybersecurity training for industrial automation & control systems (IACS). Hudson Cybertec is a subject matter expert for operational technology and works closely with a number of key cybersecurity partners. Hudson Cybertec is responsible for establishing and adapting the IEC 62443 standard. The IEC 62443 standard is the de facto standard framework for operational technology (OT) cybersecurity, as the ISO 27000 series is for information technology (IT).
