Honeywell has announced that Petróleos del Perú S.A. (Petroperú), 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 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 digitalisation initiatives and our refinery modernisation 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 programmes 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 and 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 minimise potential cyber risks in near real time in order to create safer, more efficient operations that benefit both customers and employees.”
