Are you compliant with the recent DHS Pipeline Security Guidelines?

By TIGA on Jun 8, 2021 12:39:03 PM

Background:

The current landscape of cyber security and recent intrusion events have brought to light the need for cyber security cultures to be engrained in crucial infrastructure industries. For several years now, the Department of Homeland Security has suggested that crucial infrastructure undergo a cyber security assessment and submit the results to CISA in an effort to help mitigate any potential intrusion in the United States. The Colonial Pipeline cyber-attack among other small ones around the country have brought new fervor to the push to get energy sector companies on the road to a cyber secure posture.

What Is SCADA and How It Increases Efficiency

By John Miller on Oct 10, 2018 7:59:48 AM

Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) is a control system architecture that uses computers, networked data communications and graphical user interfaces for high-level process supervisory management, but uses other peripheral devices such as programmable logic controller(PLC) and discrete PID controllers to interface with the process plant or machinery. The operator interfaces which enable monitoring and the issuing of process commands, such as controller set point changes, are handled through the SCADA computer system. However, the real-time control logic or controller calculations are performed by networked modules which connect to the field sensors and actuators.

What is That Symbol?

By John Miller on Sep 21, 2018 2:26:54 PM

What is “”? 

The ∫ is the ‘Integral’ symbol. It is typically seen as a rite of passage for those who know what it is, but it represents much more than years of calculus and differential equations or the area under the curve. The Integral symbol in math means:  

A function of which a given function is the derivative, i.e., which yields that function when differentiated, and which may express the area under the curve of a graph of the function.
