This year the Expo has relocated to the heart of Port Arthur @ Robert A. Bower Civic Center where there will be over 50+ Exhibitors, Luncheon with key note speaker and 8 technology session presented throughout the day. aeSolutions’ Marco Ayala and Tom Swihart will be presenting an Overview of Cybersecurity Lifecycle Integrated with Process Safety Management 1:00-2:00 pm.
The convergence of Information Technology (IT) and Operations Technology (OT) platforms has exposed modern industrial automation systems to increased risk. Cyber threats have the potential to affect multiple layers of protection, including basic process control, process alarms and safety instrumented systems. In certain circumstances it may be possible for a single cyber threat to simultaneously defeat all three layers of protection. Unfortunately, traditional process hazard evaluation and mitigation techniques such as HAZOP and LOPA do not include a requirement to evaluate or mitigate cyber threats. This presentation examines two aspects of integrating cybersecurity and process safety risk management.
Make sure you come by and meet our experts during the expo at – Booth # 44.
