When:  Dec 6, 2023 from 13:00 to 14:00 (ET)

Securing a government’s Critical Control System from threats, foreign and domestic requires more in-depth planning than that of a typical control system. Utilizing the “ISA-95/IEC62443” control map when designing the critical control system ensures that the deployed system will meet the stringent requirements of the government agency. Through this presentation we will provide some best practices that follow the “ISA-95/IEC62443” control map for securing a critical control system.
