aeSolutions would like to invite you a special live cybersecurity webinar:

April 30th – 2:00 PM EST

Building Cybersecurity into a Greenfield Industrial Control System (ICS) Project

This presentation is a case study on a capital project to build a greenfield facility and the efforts taken, under the direction of the CISO, to integrate cybersecurity into the project.  The presentation will discuss the project justification, the business challenges, the process of integrating cybersecurity into the industrial control system (ICS) project lifecycle as well as the benefits and critical success factors.  While not without its challenges, the result was a system that was designed, implemented, documented and tested for security before it left the factory floor and before it was commissioned onsite.


Please join us for this special 1-hour webinar.

Speaker bios: John Cusimano, aeSolutions’ Vice President of Industrial Cybersecurity

John has over 20 years of experience and has performed many control system cybersecurity vulnerability and cyber risk assessments. He is a member of the International Society of Automation (ISA) and is a voting member of the ISA 99 cybersecurity standards committee. As part of that committee, he is the chair of the zones and conduits working group, and co-chair of the product development working group. He is the developer and primary instructor of the ISA courses on cybersecurity. John is a Certified Functional Safety Expert (CFSE), a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), and a Global Industrial Cyber Security Professional (GICSP). John has a B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Clarkson University in New York.

“I am passionate about helping the process industries mature in their understanding and ability to manage operational (i.e. control system) cybersecurity risk by developing and applying engineering discipline to the process. Recognizing that operational cybersecurity risk is a subset of process safety risk, my goal is to leverage and align existing process safety management processes with operational cybersecurity management processes. I have been focused on developing, applying and sharing what I have learned with industry via client projects, standards committees and training since 2009.”
