Critical machine health
The chemical processing industry incorporates a broad range of machinery, both rotating and reciprocating, which are monitored using various types of sensors and other advanced technologies that measure equipment performance/health. The determining factor as to what must be monitored and how to do so is the criticality of the equipment, based on its importance to the process and/or operation.

As wireless sensor technology begins to take the leading edge within the industrial internet of things community, a new era of data security has emerged that requires diligent thought and consideration on the part of end users, system integrators, and key stake holders. Critical machine health and process data being transmitted wirelessly and hosted internally as well as externally creates an entirely new series of security concerns that must clearly be understood to maximize the value of the technology. This presentation will focus on the key security tools available to end users to ensure the security of their data when deploying wireless sensor networks and hosting data internally as well as externally to their organizations.
