The =Method Cyber Security Risk Management training course is approved by the IChemE.
â€‹ =Method has introduced a new 1-day Introduction to OT Cyber Security Training course.
Throughout the operational life of a process plant controls and safety systems are designed and implemented to perform reliably, consistently and predictably but if a system isnâ€™t secure, you canâ€™t rely on it to be safe.
â€‹The National Institute of Standards and Technology is a US governmental institution (part of the US Department of Commerce). The NIST Cybersecurity Framework was initially published in 2014 (v1.0) and updated in 2018 (v1.1, current).
The first reported cyber-attack on a Safety Integrated System demonstrates that systems important to safety need cyber security measures to avoid their safety arguments being invalidated. But there is a broader justification: cyber security risks arise as a direct result of the nature of networked digital technology, which renders existing safety analysis inadequate to mitigate those risks.
Method is encouraging IT and OT Cyber Security teams to develop a common understanding of Cyber Security issues.
The effective management of Cyber Security for Industrial Control systems requires cooperation between an organisations IT and OT functions.
Organisations are connecting Operational Technology (ICS / IACS / Scada, PLCs, DCS) to corporate networks for good business reasons but this can expose legacy technologies to malicious attack from the internet.
What would it look like if you turned your team into Christmas wrapping paper?
Management, Operations, Process Safety and Control & Instrumentation need to speak the same language and support each other to efficiently and effectively comply with regulations.
Our last online TUV training course for 2023 will take place on December 11th.
=Method are bringing our IChemE Approved training courses to the West of the UK in 2024.
â€‹We are delighted that our Process Safety Technical Director David Sparkes has become a Fellow of the Institute of Chemical Engineers (IChemE).
