Presentation: How Does Your Choice of SIS Architecture Impact Your Organization’s Cybersecurity?

One of the biggest decisions organizations make for plant safety and security is the choice of safety instrumented system (SIS) architecture. This decision has significant implications not just for safety and production, but cybersecurity strategy. For instance:

  • How can architecture choice simplify maintenance of security protection layers?
  • Is it possible to reduce entry points into safety-critical components?
  • How can architectures be designed to meet ISA 62443 standards?

Join me and Alexandre Peixoto at the Texas A&M Instrumentation and Automation Symposium, where we will look at a variety of defense-in-depth strategies and share how different SIS architectures affect cybersecurity postures and can help you simplify maintenance and security.
