Rockwell Automation discusses how to mitigate security risks and protect networks and facilities against a landscape of fast-changing threats at the ADIPEC.
Rockwell Automation, the world’s largest company dedicated to industrial automation and information, is at the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) from November 12-15, 2018 to demonstrate how the Oil and Gas sector can achieve operational excellence through the ConnectedProductionTM and the Digital Oilfield solutions.
One of the key elements of the digital approach, both in terms of the hardware and software, is security. Rockwell Automation, through its Network and Security Services demonstrates how organizations can secure their infrastructure according to global recognized standards, protect assets and maintain network availability in light of the security threats coming with greater connectivity.
“The convergence of information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) systems, as well as increased enterprise connectivity is significantly improving operations but also creating more potential entrance points for security threats,” said Gert Thoonen, business leader, Network Security Services at Rockwell Automation. “Awareness and prevention is crucial. These threats can take many forms, from bad-actor hackers to well-intentioned mistakes. We’re at ADIPEC to discuss with our oil and gas customers how to build an industrial security program that extends from the enterprise to the plant level and helps mitigate risk across people, processes and technology.”
Visitors to the Rockwell Automation booth 1230 in Hall 1 of the world’s leading oil and gas exhibition and conference, can:
- discuss how Network & Security Services can help achieve higher levels of productivity and integration from field devices, control and information through to the ERP systems.
- learn about Rockwell Automation’s Defense in Depth approach to Security and Security of Intellectual Property as a component of that Solution. This approach demonstrates how to protect the controller and system from tamper and intrusion, monitor changes made and how to improve up-time with remote access.
- see how to bring real-time cybersecurity and visibility for industrial control networks including how to protect control network from cyberattacks and operational disruptions with ScadaGuardianTM. It rapidly detects cyberattacks and process anomalies, providing unprecedented operational visibility helping improve cyber resiliency, reliability and safety.
