Cyber security – Oil and Gas industries

This paper  related to cyber security oil and gas industries, is available as a part of the Abhisam Industrial Cybersecurity report, which can be downloaded now. Author: H Sreedhar. Recent History of Automation in Oil & Gas   The Oil and Gas industry (O & G for short) has been a pioneer in embracing digital technology. It was one of the first industrial sectors to transition to Distributed Control Systems(DCS), from analog electronic control equipment and pneumatic instruments. This transition started in a big way, about 35 years ago, when DCS were a “hi-tech” thing.   O & G is still a tech pioneer, in the era of Industry 4.0 and the Industrial IoT. It quickly embraced concepts like the Digital Oilfield. However, this has led to newer problems related to security. The development of digital control systems and the networking, particularly with the internet, has led to increased risk …

Abhisam Industrial IoT workshop in Pune in Sep 2018

Abhisam is excited to announce its fourth Pune workshop in September 2018 (7th and 8th Sep 2018)! After a slew of workshops in Mumbai and Pune, we will have the next Industrial IoT and Digitalization workshop in Pune on 7th and 8th Sep 2018. This Level 2 (Samurai) workshop will be a deep dive into the new Industrial Internet of Things and Digitalization technology that will revolutionize all industrial sectors. One of the myths perpetrated by many entities (incumbent automation vendors, engineering consultants and so on), about IIoT and Digitalization in plants such as oil and gas installations, petroleum refineries, chemical manufacturing plants, pharmaceutical bulk drug or formulation plants, power generating plants, mining sites, discrete parts manufacturing, autombile parts plants and so on is that they will not be impacted much because there are already digitized. This is actually a half truth. Just having some microprocessor based instruments that show …

Abhisam Industrial IoT and Digitalisation workshop in Pune, India- July 2018

Abhisam is pleased to announce its third workshop in Pune!! This Industrial IoT and Digitalisation workshop will take place in Pune, India on 21st and 22nd July 2018 (weekend workshop). This  Level 2 (Samurai) workshop will be a detailed experience into the new Industrial Internet of Things and Digitalization technology that is revolutionizing all industrial sectors. One of the myths perpetrated by many entities (incumbent automation vendors,  engineering consultants and so on), about IIoT and Digitalization in plants such as chemical process plants, pharmaceutical plants, power plants, mining operations and so on is that they will not be impacted much because there are already digitized. Nothing could be further from the truth! In reality most Instrumentation, Control Systems (be it a DCS or a PLC/SCADA or a SIS) installed in even newer plants is technology that is quite old. Even your mobile phone today has more computing power than some …

Abhisam Industrial IoT and Digitalisation workshop in Pune- May2018

Abhisam is excited to announce a Samurai Level Industrial IoT and Digitalisation workshop in Pune on 19th and 20th May 2018. This weekend workshop which is a Level 2 workshop will be a deep dive into the new Industrial Internet of Things and Digitalisation technology. Until now Industrial manufacturing plants such as chemical process plants, pharmaceutical plants, power plants, mining operations and so on were not very much impacted by the sweeping wave of Industrial IoT and Digitalisation that is hitting other manufacturing industries such as discrete parts manufacturing, automobile manufacturing and other kinds of discrete “widget” manufacturing. It was thought that the process industries (think an oil refinery or a large petrochemical plant) would not be affected much as they already had a lot of sophisticated control systems sucha s DCS/PLC/SCADA  systems. However due to new Digitalisation technology, it is now possible to implement very cost effective, cyber secure, …

Abhisam Express IIoT and Digitalization Workshop in Mumbai in May 2018

Abhisam is pleased to announce that it is holding an Express IIoT and Digitalisation training workshop in Mumbai on 5th May 2018. This workshop will be an intensive one day event that will bring you up to speed with the Industrial Internet of Things and Digitalisation. These technologies are truly revolutionary and will completely change the way that you design, engineer and run plants in the future. This technology will have a much bigger impact than what happened when PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers ) and DCS (Distributed Control Systems) were introduced the first time. It is essential for all engineers and especially for Instrumentation, Automation & Control System engineers and professionals to learn and come to grips with this new technology fast, to avoid becoming obsolete in their field. Other disciplines such as Electrical & Mechanical will also find this highly useful as there are several applications using this that …
