Cybersecurity in Process Plant Safety

Understand how to prevent Major Accident Hazards (MAH) with robust cybersecurity

Process plants rely on process control systems that often contain computer controllers, networks and PLCs. Since these systems are vulnerable to cyberattack, a robust cybersecurity defense is essential to process plant safety.

Robust cybersecurity protects against major accident hazards

Our course on cybersecurity in process plant safety shows you how to identify potential Major Accident Hazards (MAH), evaluate their consequences and establish barriers to keep your plant safe.

You will learn from the experts how to assess cyber risk and ensure your defenses are deep and diversified. In addition, this webinar covers the IEC62443 group of standards governing process plant cybersecurity, providing clarification on getting started, ranking safeguards and applying SIL ratings.

Join one of DEKRA’s global experts as they explain the most relevant elements of Cybersecurity in Process Plant Safety and respond to your questions on the topic in this 3-hour webinar. Additional material such as presentations, transcripts etc. will not be supplied. For your convenience, the webinar will be delivered at two different times to accommodate participants from multiple time zones. We offer the webinars for 95 € per webinar per participant.

We offer a complimentary 30 min consultation call and a guidance on a cyber security policy for anyone who joins the webinar and is interested.
