HSE Publishes Guideline on Cyber Security for Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS)

The Chemical and Downstream Oil Industries Forum is a tripartite group of HSE, Trade Bodies and Trade Unions together with some observer organisations including IChemE.  It has recently assisted in the publication of HSE Operational Guidance on "Cyber Security for Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS)".

The Operational Guidance represents the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) interpretation of current standards on industrial communication network and system security, and functional safety in so far as they relate to major hazards workplaces. The guidance does not cover protection of critical infrastructure (e.g. utility networks) or protection of information on corporate networks.
