Webinar: Cyber-securing Safety and Equipment Protection Systems in Mining

Join us on May 29th, with 2 live webinar sessions at 9:00 AM Singapore time, and 11:00 AM New York time.

Cyber-securing Safety and Equipment Protection Systems in Mining

Safety is the top priority in almost all mines, and reliable, efficient physical operations are close seconds. Cybersecurity is essential to all these priorities, in a world where automation is remotely accessible and where many mines are the targets of threats from sophisticated ransomware criminals to nation states. In addition, the trend towards cloud computing and cloud-based predictive maintenance services complicates cybersecurity and expands attack opportunities.

The good news is that Cyber-Informed Engineering (CIE) offers a new engineering-friendly approach to understanding and addressing cyber threats that have the potential to impair worker safety and damage long-lead-time equipment.

Join our webinar on Wednesday May 29th where we'll look at:

arrow red right We’ll finish with a look at advanced topics – such as data abstraction for safer cloud-based remote control of mining operations.
