Cyber security is a regular topic on news programs; every week we hear about another breach or cyber attack on commercial and government systems. Critical plant systems must also be made safe from cyber attacks, but many have yet to be made secure. Worse still, some are thought to be secure but actually remain vulnerable.

It is difficult to implement and maintain adequate cyber security–especially in industrial applications. A range of factors contribute to these difficulties (some unnecessarily), which will discussed during the presentation.

January Speaker
William (Tim) Shaw, Principal Consultant, Cyber SECurity Consulting

Shaw has been the President/CEO of several companies that developed and delivered advanced DCS and SCADA systems for a range of industries. He also led a team that developed advanced substation automation products for electric utilities and the California, New York and New England ISOs.

For several years Shaw has been contracting with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in developing a cyber security program for nuclear power plants, fuel enrichment plants, and research and test reactor facilities. He has authored books and trade press articles on industrial cyber security and developed and taught college and ISA courses.
