Process Safety

Abstract: Don’t become tomorrow’s headline. IT security vulnerabilities can be found in almost any kind of automation system. Protect your industrial plant with the latest strategies for aligning safety and security. Learn about recommendations from the IEC for simultaneously applying Functional Safety (IEC 61508) and IT Security (IEC 62443) standards.
A generic strategy on how to align both standards simultaneously will be introduced.
How to handle risk management as well as how to cope with the different lifecycles will be presented.
The Zone and conduit concept of IEC 62443 will be discussed.
Different configurations of the SIS implementation will be introduced and discussed in view of the security impact on functional safety.

In particular:
• Take a ways from recent safety relevant security incidents in industrial plants demonstrate the need for specific IT security improvements.
• A strategy of handling updates and upgrades of SIS
• A strategy on how to protect information transfer between SIS and DCS
• Protection of real time data connection between SIS and DCS
