The Converging Worlds of Safety and Cybersecurity

Innovation often happens when different disciplines share knowledge.  We’re seeing this today with increased interactions between the risk management, industrial cybersecurity, and process safety disciplines.  Risk-based approaches are at the heart of the process safety lifecycle and end users are becoming increasingly interested in applying these same principles to cybersecurity in industrial process environments.  The cyber threat environment for end users is becoming increasingly complex.  Leading industrial organizations understand that they require key performance indicators for risk that address both their operational and cybersecurity requirements.  ​This session will examine some of the ways that the worlds of safety and cybersecurity are cross-pollinating, and how that can improve overall safety and reduce cyber incidents.
