Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Control and safety systems require process sensor input. Legacy sensors have no cyber security yet continue to be used. Real world cases include counterfeit pressure and differential pressure transmitters, hacking of process sensors from multiple control system vendors, and a Russian presentation on hacking process sensor networks. This session helps attendees understand the cyber gaps in process sensors and that cyber threats to process sensors are real and have already occurred. Attendees leave this session understanding how monitoring raw process sensor data can improve reliability, safety, and security. There is a crying need for the process sensor community to understand the implications of cyber threats to process sensors and be an active part of solution.
