The Control Systems Ecosystem – Suppliers

April 26, 2018

Abstract:

This session will go into who are all the players in this ecosystem.  Examples are: OEMs, suppliers, vendors, integrators, key consultants and their interrelationships and influences on the market.  We will discuss some great progress being made by participants in this supply chain, but also the significant challenges we still face.

This session will address questions to include:   Who has responsibility for security in an offered/procured component?  How does one conduct due diligence on suppliers?  What are fair expectations associated with such due diligence? How are vendors adapting to the increased demand for built-in security and greater support for security issues from customers? What do they feel they can do better?
