Transforming Controls Safety and Security – How Safe is your Asset?

Programme is now available to download – click here.

Organised jointly by:


Digital transformation, functional safety and cyber security are often discussed in isolation in the process control industry. However, data, analytics and remote access, are now used to improve safety, reduce cost and increase efficiency of assets, this merges these areas and they should collectively be discussed as segments of the digital solution.

This digital transformation of our industry offers opportunity and many benefits, but being more interconnected also increases the risk of a cyber threat/attack.

Do you have the knowledge and expertise to reduce the risks and maximise the opportunities? Join us to share knowledge and best practice.
