Since the deployment of the first control system, engineering focus has always targeted 100% process availability with little thought to security, other than physical access. Today, a robust design must incorporate a wide range of engineering Good Practice starting with the conceptual design phase through the project end-of-life, in order to mitigate risks to public health and safety from dangers inherent in industrial controls. The International Society of Automation strives to mitigate risk by providing Good Practice standards developed from a wide brushstroke of volunteer experienced industry professionals. The ISA 99 Committee has been developing Good Practice Standards which are recognized across the globe as IEC62443 Security for Industrial Automation and Control Systems.This presentation will provide the participant a takeaway understanding of:

 

  • The ISA99 committee operation
  • An overview of the 14 series module work products that comprise ISA99/IEC62443
  • The key foundational components involved in developing a comprehensive Security Life Cycle
  • Potential viewpoints from various stakeholders involved in the Security Life Cycle
  • Definition and descriptions of the 4 Security Levels used in establishing  Zones and Conduits for Segmentation
  • Good Practice convergence of IT/OT/Functional Safety

 

Presenter: Glenn Merrell

Preventing or bouncing back from a SCADA system upset takes planning. Kim will discuss the infrastructure, documentation and equipment redundancy needed to allow SCADA system users to avoid an interruption of SCADA service or recover from a catastrophe.
Presenters: Kim Evezich
Kim started with Timber Line as a part-time business consultant in 1987, and joined the staff full time in 1991. She is the principal owner and manager of Timber Line and has been instrumental in Timber Line becoming an employee owned company.
Kim’s primary responsibility is estimating. She delves into design/build projects and asks “what if” questions to help think through customer requests. She has established long-term relationships with Timber Line customers, many of which stretch back 25 years.
