Business case for G-Scan


Asset Discovery is a critical component of an effective Power cybersecurity strategy as it allows organizations to identify, monitor, and manage all connected devices and systems. Asset inventory list is essential for the security audit mechanism to understand the vulnerability and risk associated with the system. This module will provide comprehensive visibility and accurate inventory assets in Substation environments, enhancing security, reducing risks, and improving overall operational efficiency.

Problem Statement:

Inadequate visibility of assets in Substation environments poses significant security risks. This lack of visibility increases the potential for unauthorized access, data breaches, operational disruptions, and regulatory non-compliance. It makes difficult to implement effective security measures and respond promptly to incidents.


  1. Accurate and real-time inventory of all assets within substation networks.
  2. Identification of unauthorized or rogue devices for immediate mitigation.
  3. Enhanced visibility into system vulnerabilities for timely remediation.
  4. Improved incident response capabilities through accurate asset identification and tracking.


  1. Enhanced Security
  2. Risk reduction
  3. Regulatory compliance
  4. Operational Efficiency

Risk and Mitigation Strategies:

  1. Ensure adequate planning, resources, and stakeholder engagement to overcome potential implementation hurdles and minimize disruption during deployment.
  2. Implement appropriate data protection measures to safeguard sensitive substation asset information, adhering to applicable privacy regulations and organizational policies.
  3. Develop a comprehensive change management strategy to address resistance to the adoption of the Asset Discovery and promote user acceptance and collaboration.

The implementation of our G-scan Asset Discovery within the Power cybersecurity framework is crucial for maintaining a robust defense against evolving cyber threats, reducing operational risks, and ensuring the resilience of critical power systems. GRIDsentry will demonstrate its commitment to safeguard assets, enhancing security, and preserving business continuity.
