Red Piranha is Australia's leading cybersecurity technology and solutions developer, manufacturer, and official member of Team Defence Australia for advanced cybersecurity solutions. Dedicated to delivering ironclad information protection, Red Piranha uses automation, advanced technology, and skilled personnel to provide superior security solutions to organisations of all sizes.

The mining industry, like many other sectors, faces various cybersecurity challenges, due to remote locations, complex supply chains sharing sensitive data of you and your partners, high-value targets, and legacy security systems - in addition to the Australian federal government’s recent amendments to the Protective Security Policy Framework (PSPF), requiring Commonwealth entities to mandate a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO).

Billions are invested in data-rich exploration phases, enticing cyber espionage campaigns. We understand that safeguarding sensitive geological, operational, and financial data is critical in modern mining.

Red Piranha’s focus for the mining industry is around SOC-as-a-Service including world class Threat Detection and Incident Response.

Red Piranha SOC-as-a-Service

The effectiveness of a SOC team is determined by the technology used in operations, the risk to those operations, as well as the capability to detect, respond, and recover. It requires careful planning and ongoing evaluation to ensure seamless interoperability, eliminate blind spots, and streamline security operations.

Our SOCaaS ensures continuous monitoring of sensitive data to detect, prevent, investigate, and respond rapidly to cyber threats with multi-tier 24x7 eyes-on-glass. Get cohesive protection against advanced persistent threats (APTs) without the need for new specialist engineering teams, reducing the total cost of ownership for maximum security outcomes.

Additionally, our on-demand Human-Machine Teaming grants you access to resources at your disposal. 24/7*365 availability of immediate remote mitigative response, investigation and containment support that goes beyond alerting and notification, delivered by Red Piranha's certified security experts.

Threat Detection, Investigation and Response (TDIR)

With our best-in-breed TDIR, organisations get advanced lateral movement and correlation capabilities safeguarding critical mining operations, data, and infrastructure from cyber risks effectively. Achieve the architectural aspirations of Zero-Trust with the Crystal Eye Consolidated Security Platform. CISOs and CIOs can gain 11x Increased visibility to counter Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and granular access management and minimize the attack surface across the ever-evolving threat landscape. Use micro-segmentation to gain monitoring and response maturity and increase detection efficacy by identifying lateral movement.

Red Piranha’s TDIR, aligned with a Continuous Threat Exposure Management (CTEM) program, provides robust protection, enabling proactive threat mitigation within the dynamic threat landscape.

Red Piranha Crystal Eye

Crystal Eye secures your organisation from the cloud to the endpoint with a range of advanced security technologies for on-premise, cloud and remote workforce protection, and features:

  1. A unified control plane to streamline the interoperability of critical mining systems
  2. Plug-and-play deployment reducing engineering overheads. Turnkey delivery, with predefined processes and easy to use playbook of workflows, procedures, and analytics
  3. True Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR) to simplify workflow complexity
  4. Automatic defence rules from over 19 million Indicators of Compromise IOC’s processed daily

Crystal Eye XDR (eXtended Detection and Response) architecture.

Crystal Eye’s Network Detection and Response leverages machine learning, advanced analytics, and rule-based matching to identify anomalous and suspicious activities within mining networks, safeguarding mining organisations against zero-day threats, known malware, and APTs. 

With Crystal Eye’s Passive Encryption Control, in conjunction with Zero Trust principles, mining organisations can use custom security zones for correct segmentation and access control to improve their security posture and reduce the risk of data ex-filtration through covert network channels.

Crystal Eye continuously monitors network traffic for any deviations from the baseline of that device encryption software triggering events that can be used for a Moving Target Defence. It helps identify potentially malicious activity in the mining IoT/OT environment and alerts the user to take appropriate actions or be set to auto-block that device from communicating on the network yet still allow the operation of the device itself.

Crystal Eye Secure Edge

Red Piranha has launched Crystal Eye Secure Edge, delivering high-speed True single-vendor SASE to the market securing cloud environments without compromise. Deploy security-first SASE anywhere and instantly implement critical security controls in critical infrastructure and reduce virtualization risk with dedicated hardware control plane. The Crystal Eye SSE range brings true Borderless Firewalling capability to its partners allowing enforcement of policies, propelling your Zero Trust strategy across office locations, remote workers or in cloud native micro segmented environments. 

Designed and developed in Australia, Crystal Eye also comes with the added reassurance of being the product of a sovereign Australian company.

What this means for mining

Integrated Operationalised Threat Intelligence: With IOTI, meeting ISO/IEC 27001:2022 Annex A requirements, mining organisations have access to automated actionable intelligence (AAI) for real-time threat protection. AAI-driven actionable insights allow swift anomaly detection, bolstering threat visibility, and shielding critical assets, thereby thwarting lateral movements.

IoT/OT Security & Zero Trust Architecture: Mining companies are exposed to heavy reliance on integrated and automated systems. Cyber-attacks that target automated mining equipment and processes jeopardize the safety of miners, attacking Remote Ore Collector (ROC) and disrupting mining operations and causing financial loss. Through passive IoT traffic modelling, IEC 62443 defence enforcement, and features like secure segmentation, behavioural profiling, and real-time isolation, it fortifies critical infrastructure and ensures stable operations.

Data Protection: Achieve aspirational Zero Trust architecture with integrated Secure Web Gateway enhancing identity and access management, web filtering and content control, increased detection engineering capability and assist in Data Loss Protection (DLP) programs and reporting.
