Health, safety, and environment (HSE) management systems are widely adopted by many organizations and industrial facilities we work with. The main benefits of HSE programs are risk reduction from injuries, lost time incidents, liability and insurance costs. Safety management systems have a long history of statistical evidences showing how different types of well-documented unsafe practices, near misses and incidents have been dramatically reduced and improved through ongoing awareness training, intervention and controls. The ongoing realization of safety management system is a continuous effort towards zero incidents.
On the other hand, cyber security for industrial control systems (ICS) does not have the same benefit of decades of statistics, legislation, training, and budgets to build on, but are as critical as their conventional mechanical and human counterparts. While many organizations dedicate countless hours to protecting their employees and their physical assets, the cyber security of ICS assets are still strangely neglected in many organizations
In this presentation, we will cover the various aspects of Safety and Cyber Security and how this could be part of every organization’s culture not only as a priority, but also as core value:
How Safety and Cyber Security programs can be integrated to achieve the highest level of operational excellence?
How to use Cyber security awareness training to reduce risk and ensure safe/reliable operations?
Example of the first Cyber security Golden Rules from the first Online ICS Cyber Security Awareness Training for engineering community.
