Because you are a subscriber to The Shield, you are receiving this special Phoenix Contact-sponsored edition.

Securing systems today remains a vital ingredient to ensure a productive and profitable enterprise. Whether it is ensuring a wireless network remains up and running or making sure you can secure system on a tight budget, it all adds up to knowing those on the plant floor will be able to retain, collaborate and ensure timely and accurate decision making that will help boost productivity and profitability.

That is what this edition is all about, helping learn about new approaches to keeping your system productive, safe and secure.

In this issue we offer a video talking about the new era of Ethernet and wireless networking in industrial applications hiking security concerns to an all time high, and for good reason.

We also share a webcast that talks about creating a secure system without breaking the bank. While it is easy to simply say just throw some money at the problem and we can solve any security problem, it is not that easy. In today’s economic environment there is not very much funding to solve any cyber related issues. So, that means it is time to get creative with the funding you do have.

There are two white papers. One paper focuses on working in a post-Stuxnet era and the other talks about on making the right decisions on machine safety design.
