ICS Cyber Security Guide for the Electrical Grid
4 Dec 2019 at 12:00am
To thrive in today’s dynamic market, power utilities require new types of smart grid and control applications that enable them to optimize grid efficiency and utilize renewable energy sources. As power grids become more intelligent with advanced IoT-enabled sensors and devices, utilities have begun to integrate their IT and OT networks to leverage the data being gathered.
While IT/OT integration enables predictive maintenance, improves efficiency and reduces downtime, it also exposes power grids to a much wider attack surface. This poses a major risk to safety and business continuity because SCADA and other OT systems were not built with security in mind and were not intended to be connected to the internet. This guide is intended to help utilities build an effective cybersecurity strategy for their power grids. It presents the main security challenges grid managers face and outlines the key capabilities you should look for when selecting a cybersecurity solution.

Eliminating Catalyst Cool Down as Critical Path in a Turnaround
14 Nov 2019 at 12:00am
As with most major process plants, refineries and petrochemical plants periodically need to shut down the entire plant or major portions of it for major maintenance activities. These time periods are referred to as ‘turnarounds’ and are time periods of intense activity.
Once the plant shuts down, a considerable amount of money is being spent without any revenue being generated. So, there is immense pressure to work as efficiently as possible to get the plant back on stream as soon as possible. However, there are always events that are on the ‘critical path’. If those events can be shortened, it’s possible to be able to decrease the turnaround duration and get the plant back on-stream faster enabling it to generate revenue quicker.
