RTI Presents "Four Keys to Securing Distributed Control Systems and the Industrial IoT" Complimentary Webinar

Attendees Will Discuss the New Data Distribution Service (DDS) Security Standard Designed for the IIoT

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 11, 2014) - Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the real-time Industrial Internet of Things communications platform company, today announced it is hosting a complimentary webinar, "Four Keys to Securing Distributed Control Systems and the Industrial IoT." Control systems are at the core of critical infrastructure and industrial applications. These include the power grid, medical devices, manufacturing systems, transportation infrastructure, cars and defense systems.

Because of their essential role and the value of the information they exchange, these systems must be protected from both espionage and sabotage. This is becoming even more imperative as the enabling devices are increasingly connected into the Industrial Internet of Things to improve efficiency and availability. Securing control systems is particularly challenging because security cannot come at the expense of other fundamental requirements, including reliability, real-time performance, autonomy and interoperability.

This webinar will introduce the new Data Distribution Service (DDS) Security standard, the first standard designed to address security for mission-critical real-time systems. David Barnett, VP of Products & Markets at RTI, will review how the DDS standard provides authentication, confidentiality and access control while still satisfying demanding reliability and performance requirements. He will also discuss how DDS Security can be easily incorporated into existing systems regardless of whether or not they already use DDS.
