Manufacturing cybersecurity: Protection and recovery of automation data
One of the easiest and most successful ways to launch an attack in a manufacturing facility is to change an automation’s device program data. An integrated approach to cybersecurity is necessary for comprehensive protection and it must include the management of automated device programs and their changes. This video shows how a sound approach to securing program device data includes three key areas: preparation, detection and recovery and how that can be achieved.
MDT AutoSave change management for automation devices
Many automation programs are changed as adjustments to variables and logic are needed to continue smooth operation, but these changes also put the plant at risk. What happens if someone makes a change to a program that results in undesired performance, or corrupts the program due to inadvertent changes? If there is no backup the result is costly downtime and product errors.
The MDT AutoSave portal: Decision support dashboard
The AutoSave Portal is a decision support dashboard that enables users to view all AutoSave program change management activity in the plant including program activity, success or failure of device program compare results, program comparison details, and much more. This vital plant information is accessed from a single web interface that can run on workstations, laptops and mobile devices.
