Design and Build Productive and Secure Industrial Systems (Paper 1 of 3). A collaboration between General Electric and Dragos.

Part 1 of an ongoing collaboration between General Electric and Dragos.

What happens when you are pitching a new concept to the Plant Manager or CEO and IT Security calls for security in a way that completely prevents the implementation of new business concepts?

Engineers working with their business leaders should recognize and push requirements for connectivity, access, and sharing of sensor data – when it makes engineering and business sense, and when compensating security controls are applied to reduce any new risks introduced. This whitepaper, the first in a series of three on Designing and Building Productive and Secure Industrial Systems covers how engineers can leverage the Purdue Model to create a foundation for communicating and initiating collaboration with IT security professionals.
