You’ll learn about why most of the perceived obstacles to automation aren’t really obstacles at all and how to optimize cleaning efficiency while using less chemicals and water.Watch Now
The CFATS standard first focused on physical security, storage and handling of chemical facilities and feedstock. However, there is also a section on the need for a cyber security program. To date, there has been little detail in that section, but the general intent is for the rapidly-evolving ISA99 standard to become the cyber guidebook for CFATS. When that happens, organizations that are prepared to include cyber controls within or integrated with existing physical security systems will have a significant head start. Join Rick Kaun as he discusses the benefits and challenges of converging physical and cyber security programs.Watch Now
