The =Method Cyber Security Risk Management training course is approved by the IChemE.
=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 isn’t secure, you can’t rely on it to be safe.
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.
Our TUV Certified 61511 Functional Safety training, and both of our HazOp Training Courses are now IChemE approved.
We have now published the 8 topics that we will be discussing at our April CPD Seminar.
With TUV Sud you aren't expected to re-do the 61511 course / exam - but there is an expectation that you will do CPD to keep yourself up-to-date.
We are delighted that both of our HazOp training courses are now IChemE approved.
We were delighted that our "HazOp for Leaders" course has been has been approved by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE).
Every Team Member in a hazard and operability study has an important role to play.
