Addressing Cybersecurity in Process Control (sidebar)

Companies should do the following:

• Ensure one person takes ownership of cybersecurity and is accountable.

• Conduct an audit of current cybersecurity measures. Implement obvious fixes.

• Follow up with a cyber-security vulnerability analysis (risk analysis) for a more complete identification of vulnerabilities and recommendations for corrective action.

• Implement a cybersecurity management program by integrating it into existing management systems for safety, quality and the like.
