An Introduction to Safety Instrumented Systems (EC50C)
Instructor : Paul Gruhn
“An excellent one day overview of a complex and diverse subject.” ~Peter Skipp, Engineering Manager
There are many different ways of designing a safety instrumented system (SIS). Questions like these are being asked by users and engineering firms alike:
- Which technology should be used (electric, electronic, or programmable)?
- What level of redundancy is appropriate (single, dual, or triple)?
- How often should systems be tested (monthly, quarterly, yearly, or once per shutdown)?
- What about field devices (technology, level of redundancy, and test intervals)?
Debate continues as to how one even makes these choices (past experience, qualitative judgment, quantitative analysis, etc.). This seminar will cover the basics of what needs to be done in the design and selection of safety systems.

IC32C – Introduction to Industrial Automation Security & the ISA/IEC 62443 Standards
Instructor: Marco Ayala
“It gave me a general overview of how to setup security measures.”
– Donald Peck, Utility SCADA Supervisor
Understanding how to secure factory automation, process control, and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) networks is critical if you want to protect them from viruses, hackers, spies, and saboteurs.
This seminar teaches you the basics of the ISA/IEC 62443 standards and how these can be applied in the typical factory or plant. In this seminar, you will be introduced to the terminology, concepts, and models, as well as the element of creating a cybersecurity management system will be explained along with how these should be applied to industrial automation and control systems.
