Petroperú selects Honeywell cybersecurity solutions to bolster cyber resiliency

Honeywell announced that Petróleos del Perú S.A., one of the largest hydrocarbon producers, refiners and distributors in Peru, will implement Honeywell cybersecurity solutions in order to help Petroperú strengthen the cyber resiliency of its refinery operations and accelerate its broader digital transformation.

Petroperú’s multi-year investment with Honeywell includes access to Honeywell’s cybersecurity consulting support, managed security services and world-class threat detection capabilities. Honeywell will help Petroperú further scale its operational technology (OT) cybersecurity efforts in order to improve visibility into potential cybersecurity vulnerabilities and threats across its systems. 

“Cybersecurity resiliency is a crucial capability that underpins our sustainable operations as we work toward the future in the energy transition,” said Fernando Villacorta Padilla, chief controls and advanced applications engineer, Petroperú. “Honeywell’s cybersecurity services complement the innovative software solutions that it previously developed to support our digitalization initiatives and our refinery modernization project.”

Petroperú’s implementation of Honeywell’s cybersecurity solutions builds upon its prior integration of Honeywell Forge Workforce Competency solutions, which the company currently uses to train its industrial workforce regarding safer and more efficient operations. The added integration of Honeywell cybersecurity solutions will help Petroperú to further improve its operational efficiency, safety and security programs across Petroperú’s plants and refineries.     

“Without strong cybersecurity capabilities, energy companies that heavily rely on technology and information systems to operate can face serious consequences, including financial losses, operational disruptions, reputational damage and environmental risks,” said Sunil Pandita, vice president and general manager of Honeywell Cyber & Connected Industrials. “While Petroperú is already at forefront of the digital transformation within the energy sector, Honeywell’s cybersecurity solutions will help Petroperú to identify and minimize potential cyber risks in near real time in order to create safer, more efficient operations that benefit both customers and employees.”

Honeywell has been working with Petroperú for almost 50 years. Additionally, Honeywell provides engineering, licenses, services and technical support for three units currently in operation.

Honeywell cybersecurity solutions can help organizations to improve their OT cybersecurity defenses with vendor-agnostic solutions designed to assist in identifying, prioritizing and reducing OT cyber risks and potential vulnerabilities through advanced monitoring and detection.
