Performing Cyber Risk Assessments using exSILentia
Recording Date: June 2018
Management of risk at a facility, or company-wide, requires careful consideration of potential process hazards as well as cyber-attacks. Cyber-attacks not only impact business from a financial perspective, but can also initiate process safety incidents. Cybersecurity standards are being written to address these issues both from a manufacturer as well as a user perspective. The most effective method for developing a streamlined work process is the creation of a cohesive lifecycle that addresses all automation requirements. Cyber risk assessments and security level verification are simplified by leveraging best practices from functional safety.
