09:00am - 05:00pm  |  Presenters:  Various

A Safety Instrumented System (SIS) is an independent system composed of sensors, logic solvers (e.g. controllers), and final control elements for the purpose of taking the process to a safe state when pre-determined conditions are violated.

For more than 25 years, Siemens has been a reliable industry partner providing first-class automation solutions for process safety in a wide range of applications, such as, Emergency and Process Shutdown systems (ESD/PSD), Burner Management systems (BMS) and Fire & Gas applications (F&G).

Come join our panel of industry expert speakers for the discussion on the functional safety standard; and the applications and protection of SIS for the process plants.

TechTalk #2: Strength in CyberSecurity – Holistic Security Concept for Production based on IEC 62443

09:30am - 05:00pm  |  Presenter:  Phillip Taylor

As the level of digitalization increases with the growing networking of machines and industrial plants, so too does the risk of cyber attacks and the importance of comprehensive security concepts for automation applications.  

For critical infrastructure facilities, in particular, the appropriate protective measures are therefore mandatory.  That is why Industrial Security is an essential element of the Digital Enterprise - the Siemens way to Industrie 4.0.  It enables continuously monitored and integrated security as an important basis for industrial automation.

To ensure comprehensive protection of industrial plants from internal and external cyber-attacks, all levels must be protected simultaneously – ranging from the plant management level to the field level and from access control to copy protection.  Therefore, Siemens' approach to comprehensive protection offers defense throughout all levels – “defense in depth”.  This concept is according to the recommendations of ISA99 / IEC 62443 – the leading standard for security in industrial applications.
