Thinking security to ensure productivity
Constantly monitored and integrated security is essential for industrial automation.
More and more often, Ethernet connections extend all the way to the field level. This offers many advantages for plant automation. At the same time, however, production processes that were secure in the past are now open to attack from both the outside and inside.
Only an approach that integrates or includes security mechanisms with a comprehensive understanding of automation can provide reliable protection. Siemens supports you in implementing the necessary measures – as part of our integrated range of products and services for industrial security.
Industrial security takes account of all protection levels
Defense in depth
To ensure comprehensive protection of industrial plants from internal and external cyber attacks, all levels must be protected simultaneously – ranging from the plant management level to the field level and from access control to copy protection. This is why our approach to comprehensive protection offers defense throughout all levels – “defense in depth”. This concept is according to the recommendations of ISA99 / IEC 62443 – the leading standard for security in industrial applications.
