Digital Transformation, Process Safety, and Cybersecurity: The Need for OT Integrity

PAS has carved a unique niche for itself among industrial software suppliers.  Today, the company’s primary focus is on OT integrity, including OT and ICS cybersecurity, automation asset management, and process safety.  At the 2020 ARC Industry Forum in Orlando, I once again had the opportunity to interview PAS founder and CEO Eddie Habibi.  We spoke about how customers can realize business value from the business value of digital transformation, the importance of providing information in context (to the right people at the right time), and the increasing importance of cybersecurity and building a good OT level asset inventory.

Opportunities for Self-Paced Cybersecurity Training

Although it can be a challenge to remain isolated in our homes to protect ourselves in the midst of the pandemic, the experience can also provide us with new opportunities. Many of us have read about the use of virtual collaboration tools to allow students to continue their education while classrooms and campuses have been closed. This opportunity is not limited to students. We can all take advantage of Self-Paced Cybersecurity Training to enhance our current expertise in an area of specialty or explore new subjects of interest.
