When Energy Production and Cybersecurity Align, Uptime Improves
Here’s how Vietnam’s Binh Son Refining Company elevated their security measures to protect plant productivity.
As operator of the Dung Quat Oil Refinery, Binh Son Refinery (BSR) plays a crucial role in supporting Vietnam’s economic growth. To protect this vital national energy infrastructure—representing more than $3 billion in invested capital—BSR turned to us to counter the ever-present cybersecurity threats including digital espionage, hostile state action, and even cyberterrorism.
Our experts worked closely with BSR's research and development team to address these threats directly. The resulting comprehensive solution takes the refinery’s process control network to the next level of security. Seamless updates ensure that defenses stay timely, and BSR can tap interactive and intelligent trend reports to continuously strengthen networks and communications.
BSR is identifying and addressing potential cybersecurity and maintenance challenges remotely — before they escalate into major issues. Cybersecurity across their industrial network is aligned with global standards. They've increased uptime while enhancing stability, reliability, and safety across the entire complex. Our experts monitor 24/7 to support BSR resources and share important knowledge. Full recordings and audit trails of remote expert sessions allow BSR staff to continually train on the latest cybersecurity techniques.
“Our security updates are today better managed and kept up-to-date. We would like to attain the next higher level of cyber assurance and we are looking to Honeywell’s support to drive towards the objective.”
