SCADA Australia 2018
Implementing a Futuristic Approach to SCADA to Increase Business and Technological Efficiency
By 2020 the global SCADA market is expected to reach $32.7 billion. The future of SCADA is rapidly evolving and as such there is an increased need to remain up-to-date in order to capitalise on business and technological efficiencies.
With increased technological advancements, the SCADA industry should be more proactive in managing their systems against cyber risks. The integration of new designs and approaches in SCADA systems is much needed in order to prepare for the future. Industry 4.0 is fast approaching and the SCADA industry is in dire need to attract the younger generation to take SCADA seamlessly into the future. Without early detection of obsolete talent in the industry the ‘talent gap’ is more likely to grow and eventually reach a point of irreversibility.
With this in mind, the 9th Annual SCADA Australia Summit 2018 is returning on the 30th May - 1st June 2018 focussing on re-designing the SCADA culture, proactive cyber and operational risk management and implementation of new approaches to better prepare for the future.
Key topics to be addressed at the event include, but not limited to:
- Embracing the merge between SCADA and IIoT to better prepare for Industry 4.0
- Increasing awareness of SCADA’S rapidly evolving industry to avoid a ‘talent gap’
- Redesigning your approach to SCADA by creating a unified SCADA standard
- Increasing security awareness and safeguards with ICS and SCADA systems to maximise cyber resilience
- Implementing strategies to proactively respond to generational change to increase fresh talent within the Industry
- How the Zone Substation Simulation Centre will successfully introduce the next generation of engineers in a bid to prepare for substation design and automation
Main themes will include:
Integrating SCADA systems into existing framework (IT/OT integration)
Limiting vulnerability through effective technology (Internet of Things and Cyber Security)
Increasing business intelligence with data analysis
