These days, industrial network security is a top of mind concern for managers in industrial automation organizations. However, there isn’t a simple formula for applying it and many engineers either don’t know where to start or don’t know how to develop practical skills in this area.
Add on the challenge of trying to implement something new, while still getting the day job done … and all in all it can be overwhelming.
I’m writing today to let you know about a fairly straight forward solution to this dilemma. It’s as simple as blocking out four days to attend an event we are holding this fall in Houston, Texas (Sept. 21-14).
Attendees in a hands-on lab at the 2013 Belden Design Seminar.
At Belden’s upcoming Industrial Ethernet Infrastructure (IEI) Design Seminar, several of my colleagues and I will be presenting a special “track” related to network security. Our goal is to help event attendees learn where to start with their security strategy, in a practical way that’s not overwhelming or complicated.
In Houston, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in five presentations and one hands-on lab, all facilitated by Belden’s top security experts. While there are plenty of reasons to attend the Design Seminar, you’ll leave with concrete next steps to prioritize and secure your most critical assets.
You will also learn what you can do to enhance overall operational security – from policies and procedures and industry best practices, to specific technology, products and solutions that protect mission-critical areas. You’ll even learn how to leverage the products you may already have in place.
The various sessions are designed to complement one another and give you the confidence to go back to your company and know what to do next to secure your network. The sessions include:
