Identifying and Addressing Process Control Network Misconfigurations to Reduce Risk
Time & Location
About the Event
Over the last few decades companies have expanded and transformed their Process Control Networks (PCNs) by modernizing them with newer digital technologies, and integrating them with other parts of the business – both horizontally (e.g. unit-to-unit or cell-to-cell) and vertically (e.g. operations to business). Typically, these transitions evolved over time, often resulting in large, flat, multi-vendor, multi-generational networks that are organically extended, inadequately configured, poorly documented, and difficult to support and maintain. Common misconfigurations found in today’s PCNs threaten Availability, Security, Operations and potentially introduce additional risk to organizations.
This webinar will discuss how addressing these misconfigurations does not have to be a daunting task, and in many cases, they can be addressed without shutting down operations. At the end of the presentation, a case study will be presented to provide an example from an operating facility that had many of these common misconfigurations that were identified and mitigated, resulting in a more resilient PCN. Join us as we discuss the most common PCN misconfigurations, how these vulnerabilities can be identified, and how to go about reducing the risk.
