Groß-Bieberau, 07 March 2019. Since 26 February 2019, the first book by Sebastian Rohr (CEO at accessec GmbH) is available in stores. The book, which was published jointly with Vogel Communications Group GmbH & Co. KG is aimed at employees and production managers, site managers, production planners and product developers, IT-savvy maintenance engineers, commissioning engineers and suppliers of automation technology for automated plants.

“In the book, readers will find the essential aspects of secure IT for production plants,” explains Rohr. “Increasingly complex data and information flows in industrial manufacturing are leading to increased cross-company communication. This has a direct impact on the necessary protective precautions for IT, production and production data”.

A lack of intelligent and forward-looking security measures causes too high risks, for example for manipulation of processes, data and machines and thus for production equipment and products. For this reason, modern Identity and Access Management (IAM) will play an important role in the future.

Rohr will focus on the following topics:

  • Organisational requirements for the establishment of Industrial IT Security
  • Automated production systems
  • (IT) network technology and directory services in production
  • Security of applications and SCADA/ICS components
  • Risk management and industrial IT security
  • Industry outlook 4.0

With his book, Rohr strengthens the necessary problem awareness for the vulnerability of control technology and standard information technologies in industrial companies. Along the automation pyramid, he shows solutions to contain potential safety risks in networked control and sensor systems of modern production plants.
