Advancing control systems for business efficiencies

The role of control systems in providing real-time diagnostic information is a key factor in driving business efficiencies in critical infrastructure.

However, the need to integrate disparate systems for timely data sharing while remaining cost-effective is a challenge for both engineering and operations teams. What’s more, cyber security resilience of control systems continues to come to question as more and more SCADA applications are being moved to virtual environments.

As such, IQPC’s 6th annual SCADA forum, SCADA Australia 2013, will bring together a cross-industry panel of speakers with experience ranging from control systems design to asset and operations management, to shed light on a number of key issues including:

• Achieving integration and interoperability across various systems;

• Strengthening cyber security in your control systems; and

• Moving SCADA to virtual environments – challenges and benefits.

Through real life case references, this event will delve into how SCADA and control systems managers are achieving continuous improvements from SCADA host upgrades, asset management, smart alarming and the use of smart grid technologies. The event will also explore future integration for SCADA/control systems on a single platform.

SCADA Australia 2013 will take place in Brisbane in October. Register by August 9, to take advantage of the early bird offer.
