The Connection Between Cybersecurity and Safety

aeSolutions' VP of Cybersecurity, John Cusimano, was recently published in the ISA Global Cybersecurity Alliance's blog for an article on the discuss the intersection of safety and security.

Process engineers and machine builders have been conducting process safety and machine safety studies for decades to understand and mitigate risk. They utilize a variety of methodologies to perform these assessments, such as process hazard analysis (PHA), layer of protection analysis (LOPA), hazard and operability analysis (HAZOP), and failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA).

Therefore, to ensure our machines, processes, and facilities are truly safe, we must evaluate the risks associated with cyber compromise of the integrity and availability of control systems.


This blog series will discuss the intersection of safety and security.
