I am attending the ISA Safety and Security Symposium. Control System Security is definitely a hot topic. Following 9/11, all eyes were on critical infrastructure security. We have to secure our power generation, power transmission and distribution and our manufacturing infrastructure.

Critical infrastructure can include:
1. Telecommunications
2. Electric Power generation and distribution
3. Water and Waste Water treatment and distribution
4. Oil and Gas
5. Chemical Process Manufacturing
6. Mass Transportation etc.,
7. Food processing and distribution
8. Pharamaceuticals

AlertEnterprise delivers software solutions to protect critical infrastructure. We need standards in place like the ANSI / ISA S99 to help protect our nation’s critical infrastructure.
