Best Practices for Increasing the Security of an Automation System
Historically, automation systems have relied on "security through obscurity" to avoid computer attacks. Those days are gone. While the number of actual attacks on automaiton systems has been small, the tools needed to conduct these attacks are now loose in the "wild", and the potential losses from an attack are large. Requirements for MIS and MES integration with the control system, as well as program backup and maintenance activities, eliminate the possibiity of security through lack of connectivity.
Join us for a 45-minute educational webinar where you'll learn how to control security risk through careful system design and security-awareness best practics. The presenter, Murray McKay, Principal Application Engineer, Siemens Industry , will discuss key steps that can help protect your control system against malevolent threats.
