Cyber Security 6/16-26

Wednesday, June 16, 2021 to Sunday, June 27, 2021

2PM - 3PM (EST)

Cyber Security, increasingly important as more devices come online, requires knowledge and preparation to prevent unwanted intrusions of potentially hostile parties. Industrial, Commercial and Educational facilities face a unique challenge in the IT world due to the potentially astronomical cost of downtime and service. Balancing plant operations versus cyber security does not need to be difficult but is critically important. Achieving an affordable equilibrium between these two sometimes disparate, antithetical paradigms requires careful planning and specific implementation. This discussion will detail the dangers of ignoring one in favor of the other and cover methods for striking a balance between usability, availability, and security. We will cover current network design standards and terminology and potential low-cost solutions for bringing your network into standards compliance.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the importance of Cyber Security in the manufacturing industries
  • Engage in plans for corrective actions according to their specific needs in cyber security

Who Should Attend: 

  • Process control
  • PIMA
  • Process Engineers
  • CIO
  • COO
  • Pulp and Paper Manufacturing
