EVENTSin DCS & Batch Controllers
The Emerson Global Users Exchange is more than an industry-leading technical conference…it is a community of manufacturing leaders committed to extracting the most from their automation investment…and sharing their learning with each other.
The annual Process Solutions User Group (PSUG) meeting, hosted by Rockwell Automation just prior to the Automation Fair event, is an opportunity for attendees to exchange ideas with peers, learn best practices and discover solutions to improve their processes and create new revenue.
Rockwell Automation welcomes industrial professionals, media, analysts, and technology and service providers to its Automation Fair® event. Through exhibits, labs, technical sessions and forums, attendees will learn how to leverage the connected enterprise to optimize production, improve machine performance, and manufacture products in a safer, more sustainable manner.
TRAININGin DCS & Batch Controllers
This course is intended to provide an understanding of the types of computer-based devices, systems and networks used in modern industrial plants as well as the ways in which these elements can be compromised via cyber attacks. Attendees will also learn to build risk management techniques to improve their plant’s cybersecurity.
This course will provide attendees with the knowledge and the tools required to successfully supervise and manage departments and groups involved in industrial control systems (manufacturing, sales, design, installation or maintenance).
This course provides a detailed look at how the ANSI/ISA-62443 (formerly ISA99) standards can be used to protect your critical control systems. It also explores the procedural & technical differences between the security for traditional IT environments & those solutions appropriate for SCADA or plant floor environments.
