Cybersecurity is now a real boon for ICS/SCADA operations and maintenance. The talk will create awareness for plant/field teams by detailing various area of focus and measures for improving cyber resiliency for the ICS/plant which would pave way to the overall efficiency and savings.

While cybersecurity is typically thought of as a cost driver, there is mounting evidence that it can lead to a positive return of investment (ROI). Company leaders are spending heavily to protect their networks, systems, and data.

This presentation will analyze the roots of connected ICS like Industrial IoT, connected process controls, smart meters, etc., It will also make the argument for tangible benefits for plant efficiency, energy savings and process/machinery optimization, which could be a big motivating factor for management teams making budgetary decisions on cybersecurity efforts as well as the operations and maintenance teams implementing them.

Learning objectives for attendees:

While the ICS/OT cybersecurity budgets are growing larger, plant managers tend to believe that these investments don’t yield a direct return of investments. This presentation will attempt to counter that argument by explaining that ICS/OT cybersecurity not only secures networks and data but also helps with prime business protections such as emergency shutdown, disaster recovery, machinery safety and human safety. It contributes to energy safety, plant efficiency and ultimately leads to a healthier bottom line.
