ICS environments are typically “flat”, designed with a rudimentary security posture never intended to be connected to the corporate network nor the Internet for that matter. The trend towards connectedness persists and this, along with the rising ICS threat landscape has made ICS a prime target for cyberattacks. Stronger access controls are critical for managing the different attack surfaces.
During this webinar you will hear from several ICS Networking and Security expert practitioners on how this connectedness can be securely and easily achieved:
· What “Zero Trust” is, how it scales, and why you would want to deploy this in your ICS along with the idea of positive enforcement for your security policies.
· How to bolster your network visibility and segmentation without having to do a “forklift” overhaul and reconfiguration of your existing infrastructure.
· How the Palo Alto Networks platform can help you realize these concepts in a systematic, organized, and minimally disruptive way.

The European pumps market for the food and beverage industry witnessed a nominal growth in 2012. An increase in growth is expected over the next five years; the outlook for 2013-14 is likely to mirror the situation in 2012 due to the impact of the sovereign debt crisis in Europe. Centrifugal pumps have the bigger share of the market, but positive displacement pumps are likely to witness higher growth. Increasing consumer preference for convenience food is expected to be a key driver for the growth of the pumps market in the processed food segment. The increasing consumer awareness on the health and safety aspects of food products is expected to increase the emphasis on the hygienic aspects of the pumps during the forecast period and beyond.Read more >
Of the 100 million Americans who consume gluten-free products, only around 25 percent have a gluten intolerance or wheat allergy (or believe they do)*.

What do those terms really mean, and how can you make them add value?
“Clean label” and “simple label” are terms we hear used every day in our industry, yet most consumers have never heard of them. The trend toward clean and simple is now global and a major challenge for processed food manufacturers, but the indicators used to analyze the trend can be misleading. Drawing on deep consumer and manufacturer research, this webinar addresses what “clean label” and “simple label” really mean for consumers, how the two terms differ, and how we can most effectively market them.
Energy and Sustainability Management in the Food and Beverage environment, reducing your Operating Costs, to Boost your Profit Margins.
Compared to other industries, the Food and Beverage (F&B) industry leads the way in terms of the development and deployment of sustainability programmes. F&B manufacturers have improved the efficiency of their facilities, invested in renewable energy, and managed the sustainability of their supply chains in order to lower the impact on the environment. The F&B industry has met the requirements of global and local legislation, and leads all sectors in sustainability disclosure.
However, with persistent global resource shortages and increasing energy and commodity prices, tougher governmental regulations will be enforced and customers will demand increased transparency of F&B operations. It is estimated that 10% of the world’s emissions come from manufacturing, and that a 26% improvement potential exists for manufacturing firms worldwide.
This Webinar, recommends an integrated Sustainability and Energy Management programme resulting in reduced costs, increased profitability, lower carbon emissions, mitigated risk and improved corporate image for F&B organisations.
Water is the main ingredient in all of The Coca-Cola Company's beverages and is essential to its manufacturing processes. Water also has broad implications for the company’s supply chain as a key component in the production of sugar, citrus, coffee and other ingredients. It is also vital to the sustainability of the communities that the company serves. Reducing water scarcity, enhancing water quality and addressing the water needs of local communities are direct and vital business concerns.
Over the last ten years, the company's evolution in water stewardship has been significant: from a major reputation crisis in 2002 involving communities and government authorities in southern India to a 2007 call for corporate “water neutrality,” TCCC has developed and continues to evolve one of the more sophisticated water stewardship programs in the private sector.
However, true sustainability as it relates to water will involve more than “neutralizing” the volume of water that the company uses. This is because fluctuations in the amount and quality of water available to a given community or ecosystem play an important role in sustaining the diversity and proper functioning of river ecosystems and watersheds.
This presentation will profile Coca-Cola's experience over the past ten years providing a glimpse into the company’s commitments and an appreciation of the complexity of true water stewardship:
• Plant performance (water use efficiency, water quality, wastewater treatment)
• Watershed protection (source assessment and protection)
• Sustainable communities (helping enable access to clean drinking water and sanitation)
• Global awareness and action (helping mobilize the international community to drive global awareness and action to address water challenges)
In the 21st century, the primary challenge facing the entire global food & agriculture industry sector will be ensuring that it is intact into the 22nd century. Three themes emerge from the key challenges facing the food and agricultural industry sector that companies need to know in order to be successful in this market space today and tomorrow:
- Resource efficiency
- Changes to the socio-economic environment
- Freedom food and enhanced nutrition and health
This analyst briefing will argue that companies with a truly global market and product strategy, a focus on health and wellness, and adoption of an environmentally and socially responsible sustainability strategy will come out on top and be global leaders of the food and agriculture value chain. Join Frost & Sullivan as we present an assessment of the current trends and predictions expected to impact the global food and beverage market and enabling industries in 2015 and beyond.
