The world of process safety has for many years pursued a philosophy of managing safety systems as separate entities, independent, unconnected and certainly secluded from the internet as much as possible. This approach is now changing; the benefits of digitization and using safety-related data are outweighing the risks of a more open connectivity (provided that sound cybersecurity strategies are implemented).

This leads to safety-related simplification in two key areas – risk management and operations management – and helps with the everyday integration of the two.
