If you think cyber attacks on process systems aren’t close to home, you could be mistaken. Cyber criminals could be at your back door – waiting to impact your production, corporate reputation and service if it’s left wide open.
Really, it’s a paradox. At Siemens, we believe digitalisation is the solution to customers’ problems. It can transform process safety standards, with a system far more controllable and safe than one based on ‘air gaps’.
Yet, as well as improving safety, digitalising a network also means enhancing connectivity. Every location and device is connected, no matter how humble or remote. This means the ‘attack surface’ has suddenly become much larger. And while central assets may be protected by sophisticated IT systems, what about all those less prominent areas? Digitalisation may enhance safety, but it can also compromise security if the appropriate measures aren’t in place.
As well as part of the problem, however, digitalisation is also an integral aspect of the solution. This webinar explains why.
If you are yet to embark on your digitalisation journey, this is the ideal time for your operations teams to learn about the continuous improvement steps needed to improve process safety standards, and mitigate security risks.
Specifically tailored to the chemical industry, this webinar will focus on how you can make a difference to the way your business approaches safety and security. Highlights include:
