With the growth of Industrial IoT (IIoT) in control systems used in hazardous locations, there is a need for cybersecurity testing of components, products and systems to mitigate the risk.†

Cybersecurity is critically important for any hazardous location facility to prevent the risk of fire or explosion as well as to optimize operational efficiency.†While many specifications and guidance documents provide information on secure product development principles, there is still a need to test and measure the security posture of products using comprehensive testing criteria and an important certification management process throughout the life of a component.†

This webcast will address what security testing should include and what key attributes to measure and evaluate, supply chain considerations, and how to maintain certified status in the age of ICS vulnerabilities?

Join Ken Modeste, ULs Director of Connected Technologies, and Doug Wylie, Director of Industrials & Infrastructure at SANS, for this webcast leading up to the SANS Oil & Gas Cybersecurity Summit this October in Houston.
