The traditional approach to cybersecurity has been to use a prevention-centric strategy focused on blocking attacks. While prevention-centric approaches do stop many threats, many of today’s advanced and motivated threat actors are circumventing these defences with creative, stealthy, targeted, and persistent attacks that often go undetected for significant periods of time.
Leveraging IIoT advancements, learn how to break traditional barriers between your power and process control systems to solve challenges across the full lifecycle of the plant. Download the white paper to learn more.
Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies and concepts can transform and enhance process safety practices if appropriately applied. Download the white paper for guidance on leveraging IIoT tools and techniques to deliver industrial safety in a profitable manner.
Industrial process safety management has evolved beyond simple functional safety. Some companies are at risk because management and business process aspects are not integrated into the overall safety plan. Such gaps can impact both operational integrity and profitable performance.
Explore the change drivers affecting plant process safety management and learn how operators can find, measure, and manage gaps to maintain safe conditions and improve profitability.

The demands of modern IIoT applications increases the complexity of systems infrastructure
and puts additional pressure on IT and OT security. As the frequency and sophistication of cyber-attacks increase, operations must leverage industry standards to achieve consistent protection. This paper will address how IEC62443 can be applied to industrial control systems and help readers understand the various priorities and steps required to help mitigate cyber
The safety of operations can have a direct, positive impact on the operational profitability of the plant. Environmental health and safety (EH&S) can now be viewed not just as a cost center, but as a profit center, and new levels of both safety and profitability can result. Real-time safe profitability is no longer a dream—it is a reality!

Operational readiness depends on rich location data. When managing logistics and tracking high-value assets, there is no room for error and our new data-driven world demands richer, smarter advanced mapping and navigation services.
The 2018 Counterpoint Research Location Ecosystems Update compared 16 location platform vendors—including Google, TomTom and Mapbox—and it named HERE the “undisputed leader” in location based services.
Counterpoint recognized HERE for its integrated analytical capability and commitment to open partnerships, allowing for custom operational requirements and a truly mobile location intelligence platform.
See how HERE provides the industry leading tools and expertise to process that data—streamlining the logistics supply chain, boosting responsiveness, and guaranteeing mission success.
For 100% operational readiness in a data-driven culture, you need an optimized location platform.
Ovum’s Location Platform Index: Mapping and Navigation can help you identify what you should expect from a platform, and discover the platform that best meets your operational requirements.
Founded in 1985, Ovum has one of the most experienced analyst teams in the industry and is a respected source of guidance for technology and intelligence leaders. Ovum's report assesses and ranks the major vendors in the location platform market with a focus on the mapping and navigation space.

As more and more data pours into the office of the CFO, experts say, minimizing its complexity and maximizing its usefulness becomes critical. “The amount of data is phenomenal,” says Mr. Whitehead of Airbus Defence and Space, “but what’s worse is the lack of harmonization. Unstructured data is what kills you. The key for me is how to have clear data in a usable and consistent form, which can be turned into succinct information the business can look at, understand where the value chain is, and make decisions.”
You are doing everything you can to avoid breaches. But what happens when a hacker manages to bypass your security? In this webinar we will show you how to build a strong security posture and a layered defence that will give you the ability to quickly respond to breaches. We will cover: - The evolving threat landscape and why prevention-only strategies eventually fail - How to build a strong first line of defence to reduce exposure to threats - Protect your last line of defence with retrospective security - A quick demo of how Cisco Umbrella and AMP for Endpoints work together to contain, detect and remediate threats in real time - An overview of how Incident Response Services can help you with the skills you need to manage a breach

Backup and recovery have been a constant for organisations over the years, often not seen as glamorous aspects of an IT environment but as solutions that are necessary all the same. Environments have changed over the years and the focal use for backups have changed with them, although your solutions may not have.
Taking a simple off-site backup, whether this be to disk, tape or other removable media, would once have been the last line of defence for data protection. Solutions were reliable and ensured data could be recovered in a timely manner.

The number one technology issue in the C-suite today is cyber-security.
And there’s no wonder—attacks are becoming more numerous and more sophisticated than ever. The cost of cyber-crime to the global economy has topped more than $445 billion2 – equivalent to 1% of global GDP. Sometimes cyber-crime can seem unstoppable – while firms spent more than $75 billion on cyber-defences in 20153 , cyber-crime grew by 38% that year.
That’s why C-suite executives everywhere are asking: What can we do to make a difference in defending against hackers, cyber-criminals and digital spies?
New digital technology now makes it feasible to integrate process control and SIF within a common automation infrastructure. While this can provide productivity and asset management benefits, if not done correctly, it can also compromise the safety and security of an industrial operation. Cybersecurity and sabotage vulnerability further accentuate the need for securing the safety instrumented system (SIS).
Certainly, a common platform approach using similar hardware and software dedicated for control and safety functions, respectively, can provide the potential for cost savings. However, it is widely acknowledged that utilizing separate, independent, and diverse hardware/software for safety and control is the optimal way to protect against potentially catastrophic common cause and systematic design and application errors.
Different vendors offer varied degrees of integration and solutions. The question is: how to provide an integrated control and safety solution with advanced functionality and productivity without compromising safety and security? And, where do users draw the line?
A third-party (e.g., TÜV) certification of the hardware/software systems to IEC 61508 specifications carries significant advantages, but should this be the only criterion? How does a third-party certificate extend to the plant’s overall assignment of risk reduction credits for all independent protection layers (IPL)? Control system embedded safety logic solvers may actually increase the SIL requirements of the SIF if no credit is allowed for the distributed control system (DCS) as an IPL.

The U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the U.K. Bribery Act (UKBA), Sapin II and many other Anti-Bribery and Corruption (ABC) laws and regulations around the world make it clear that bribery and corruption is prohibited, illegal and the source of fines, penalties, reputational damage, and in some cases criminal liability. This is particularly true when the bribes are offered to foreign government officials, especially by third parties.
Before examining some of the common red flags and the appropriate courses of action to take, reviewing the various guidelines and frameworks available for organisations to build adequate procedures to protect themselves against third party risks is advisable.
These frameworks have assisted organisations in establishing a strong legal defence in the event that a bribe does occur. These measures are having ramifications across the globe and they inform many of the components of the best ABC programmes in place today.
