Safety Instrumented Systems and Cyber Security

Safety instrumented systems are used in many applications today to improve the safety and reliability of process systems. Manufacturers like oil and gas producers, chemical processors or power generators that apply automation to critical plant require high availability systems.  These systems are sometimes referred to as triple modular redundant (TMR) systems, to reduce the risks associated with uncontrolled shutdowns caused by equipment failures. IEC 61511 is a standard that helps governs the application of this technology and has recently undergone a revision that, amongst other changes, requires cybersecurity to be considered in any risk assessment.

Both IEC 61511 and IEC 62443 call for risk assessments to be conducted, however the outcomes of each risk assessment can be very different. This presentation will explore the requirements of a cybersecurity risk assessment and how it could be aligned with the results of a process risk assessment to determine what countermeasures are need. It will explore the current recommendations for cybersecurity in SIS safety systems and also look at what some organizations are implementing to address technical challenges posed by security and geography.
