Functional safety and security: Holistic approach for a secure last line of defense
29 novembre 2018 - Ora 15.05 - 15.40 - Sala Gonzaga
The future of the process industry is digital. Digitization holds many opportunities for plant operators to enhance efficiency, increase flexibility and make their plants future-proof. At the same time, the growing level of automation and connectivity can be a door-opener for serious threats to plant security. The purpose of modern functional safety solutions is to reduce safety and security risks to a minimum. Therefore, a holistic approach is needed which not only includes the core SIS (final control elements, logic solver incl. I/O module and sensors), but also its environment like the engineering station, asset management tools (AMS) and handhelds as well as field entry panels and HMIs. By complementing the SIS with the “HIMA Security Environment for Functional Safety,” this approach takes all important security-relevant aspects of industrial control systems (ICS) into account. These include the five following areas: Controller hardware and firmware, engineering toolkit, PC infrastructure, communication infrastructure and lifecycle management.
HIMA explains why plant operators should implement a holistic functional safety approach that ensures plant security in times of increasing cybercrime. A holistic approach to security should cover the core SIS, including final control elements, logic solver, and I/O module and sensors. It should also extend to the SIS environment, including the engineering station, asset management tools (AMS), handhelds, and field entry panels and HMIs.
