Securing a Network On Budget

Monday, September 13, 2010 @ 05:09 PM gHale


Network cyber attacks are getting more prevalent, more sophisticated, and they are not going away.
While the July Stuxnet attack garnered the industry’s attention, it was not the first time, nor will it be the last time manufacturing automation networks become the unwitting victim of a cyber assault.
With cyber-related incidents costing around $20 billion a year, now is the time for engineering and IT professionals to drop any animosities and team together to fight the attacks against their networks in order to cut down on any unplanned downtime. By winning that battle, it can save a manufacturer thousands if not millions of dollars a year.
In order to help educate the industry, Phoenix Contact and manufacturing automation web news site Industrial Safety and Security Source (ISSSource.com) are offering a webinar entitled “Securing Your Network While Cutting Your Costs.”
Join Phoenix Contact’s Networking Security Expert Dan Schaffer, United Water of New Jersey’s Keith Kolkebeck, and ISSSource Founder and Editor Gregory Hale in a live webinar Sept. 30 at 10 a.m. eastern time as they discuss issues, trends and real life security applications that help save money and boost revenues.
They will discuss:
• The need for security
• Leveraging secure remote connectivity to cut costs
• Securing the relationship between engineering and IT
“One of the key elements of this webinar is to demystify security for engineers,” said Gregory Hale, editor and founder of ISSSource. “Yes, you want to stay one step ahead of the bad guys, but it does not need to be complicated to protect yourself from basic attacks.”
