      What is the Best Connectivity Solution for Your IIoT Systems? Andrew Watson, OMG; Angelo Corsaro, PrismTech; Gerardo Pardo-Castellote, RTI; Nina Tucker, Twin Oaks Computing Recorded: Feb 22 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • Today's computing infrastructure is changing dramatically to support new requirements in design and structure. This is no more evident than in the Internet of Things, where new types of machines driven by vast, complex industrial, distributed systems, can’t operate without connectivity. These new machines will transform our infrastructure into smart freeways, distributed power generation and autonomous driving cars, etc., revolutionizing the workplace and our lives for years to come.

      These new IoT systems need data-centric technology that directly addresses real-time systems to explicitly manage the communications “data model.” No matter what application – from financial trading platforms, to medical devices, to smart electrical grids, to exploration and production and to transportation – industries need solutions to find right data then communicates it to its intended destination in a reliable, flexible, fast, and secure manner.

      Evolving the Industrial IoT Into Strategic Advantage Bill Roberts, Director, Global IoT Practice, SAS; Ted Connell, Director, Solution Architect Group, Intel Recorded: Feb 15 2017 7:00 pm UTC 56 mins
    • Heavy industry was first to arrive at the IoT party, quickly recognizing the potential to augment existing processes and establish new protocols. As a result, organizations that embraced the industrial internet of things (IIoT) have been at the forefront of fine-tuning applications and establishing best practices. And while many of those practices have turned out to be impactful, it’s becoming increasingly apparent that the opportunity is much bigger with predictive analytics.

      We’ve entered a perfect storm where the falling costs of capturing, processing and analyzing data coincide with the explosion of data streams generated by millions of pieces of connected equipment, devices and systems. And the same technology that created the perfect storm has empowered customers with near-instant data and instantaneous engagement with each other and also with your organization. So the opportunities extend beyond tactical process improvements and have become both strategic and enterprise-wide.

      Recognizing and capitalizing on the opportunities requires an evolution of skills and mindset, made possible with key technology relationships. The Industrial IoT collaboration between SAS and Intel enables organizations to capture, process and analyze data. The end result is the ability to evolve their strategic advantage and realize the full value of their IIoT data.

      Tune in to this webinar to gain insights and best practices for evolving the industrial IoT into strategic advantage for your organization.

    • Protecting the ICS through Segmentation
      Protecting the ICS through Segmentation Lionel Jacobs - Sr. Architect, Industrial Controls Systems - Palo Alto Networks Recorded: Oct 19 2016 6:00 pm UTC 50 mins
    • Segmentation is a crucial element to modern network design and accepted widely as a recommended best practice. It is believed that many of the current successful cyber-attacks against ICS/SCADA infrastructures could have been prevented or contained if proper segmentation had been in place.

      Unfortunately, many existing ICS/SCADA systems predate modern best practices. Owner-operators are challenged to face cybersecurity risks with outdated defense mechanisms. Implemented during an era where air gaps existed, the use of commercially available off-the-shelf products (COTS) have connected the serial based on brownfield systems into the industrial Internet of things (IIoT). In doing so exposing the ICS/SCADA to the same threats and perils as its enterprise counterpart. Come join us as we discuss ways and techniques that Palo Alto Networks NGFW can be used to achieve ideal network segmentation.

    • Introduction to Uncertainty Modeling
      Introduction to Uncertainty Modeling Tao Yue, Shaukat Ali, and Bran Selic - Simula Research Laboratory Recorded: Jan 25 2017 4:00 pm UTC 61 mins
    • The importance of facing, understanding, predicting and even mitigating uncertainty has been well acknowledged and studied in various fields such as philosophy, physics and finance. In terms of software and system engineering, due to the increasing complex of large-scale systems themselves, and the dynamic and unpredictable deployment and operation environments of such systems, increasing attentions have been given to address challenges of explicitly specifying and modeling uncertainty.
      Uncertainty Modeling (UM) aims to promote and enable explicit specifications of uncertainty and uncertainty related concepts, at various contexts (e.g., developing large-scale Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things, for different purposes (e.g., enabling uncertainty-wise requirements specifications, modeling, verification and validation, e.g., facilitating the definition of uncertainty-wise testing strategies), and at different phases of the development of such complex and uncertainty-inherent systems (e.g., requirements, architecture, design, testing and operation).
      In the context of OMG, we see a diverse set of uncertainty modeling applications, such as 1) integrating with UML use cases, SysML Requirements Diagram, to enable requirements V&V, 2) capturing uncertainty as part of SysML or UML models to facilitate design and/or testing, 3) integrating with BPMN and other OMG standards to facilitate different kinds of analyses and generations.
      OMG’s Uncertainty Modeling Request for Information (RFI) is currently open for responses. The RFI aims to solicit ideas, discussions, comments, recommendations, user needs and experiences about uncertainty modeling. Collected responses will be carefully analyzed and will be used to identify requirements, based on an RFP for an UM will be developed. Instructions for responding to this RFI are specified in the OMG Uncertainty Modeling Request for Information document (ad/16-09-02 (Uncertainty RFI)).
      We invite you to join the conversation.

    • Systems Engineering and the Internet of Things
      Systems Engineering and the Internet of Things Matthew Hause,GTM Technical Specialist, Engineering Fellow, PTC and Graham Bleakley Solution Architect, IBM's IoT Watson Grp Recorded: Nov 8 2016 4:00 pm UTC 61 mins
    • The Internet of Things (IoT) is a complex system of systems (SoS). IoT systems include the electric smart grid, smart manufacturing, autonomous vehicles, smart consumer devices, etc. Technology advancements will continue to evolve to facilitate connection to larger and larger IoT networks and more complex devices. This will be the catalyst that will drive entire infrastructure changes to federal, state, city, and local governments, product development companies, utility and service providers, and even to consumers and their homes. The infrastructure and management will need to be established prior to, or in conjunction with, the smart systems that support them. The future of IoT success is dependent on the application of solid Systems Engineering and Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) principles. MBSE enables engineers to manage the definition of interfaces, allocation of behaviors, evolution of technology, and system security: concepts essential to the successful development of IoT applications. Absent of any industry standards, IoT systems would explode in chaos rather than evolve in a controlled manner.
      The Unified Architecture Framework (UAF) provides a means to develop and understand complex system of systems architectures and how they evolve. The Systems Modeling Language (SysML) supports systems engineers to define systems requirements, structure, and behavior throughout the system lifecycle. UAF and SysML combined provide a means of defining complex systems of systems as well as detailed devices and how they work together. IoT success will only be realized through application of up to date, standardized systems engineering languages, processes, and tools.

    • Analysis of Data Residency Issues
      Analysis of Data Residency Issues Andrew Watson, Vice President and Technical Director, Object Management Group; Claude Baudoin, Owner, cébé IT Recorded: Jul 7 2016 3:00 pm UTC 63 mins
    • The Object Management Group (OMG) recently led an effort to collect input from a varied cross-section of organizations regarding the challenges and potential solutions to data residency – which we defined as the issues that result from the storage and movement of data across geographies and jurisdictions. In this webinar, we will present our early findings from this study (which will be published as an OMG discussion paper in Q4 2016). These findings cover the types of data that are impacted, the regulations that may result in unintended access to the data, the resulting risks, the way data residency is governed inside organizations, and the technical solutions that can be applied in the future (assuming that suitable standards are developed). We will conclude by indicating to the participants how they can get involved in aiding and steering the pursuit of the OMG’s mission in this domain.

    • Cyber Security Work at OMG - Task Force Levels
      Cyber Security Work at OMG - Task Force Levels Ron Townsen, Sr. Lead Engineer, General Dynamics, OMG C4I and Andrew Watson, Vice President and Technical Director, OMG Recorded: Oct 18 2016 3:00 pm UTC 46 mins
    • Cyber threats facing a nation's critical infrastructure, mission-critical systems, or any Internet of Things (IoT) system, demand a cyber infrastructure that matches their combined enormity and complexity. Risk management solutions must be capable of understanding intricate attack patterns and assessing complex vulnerabilities to give stakeholders confidence in their system's ability to withstand malicious attacks.

      Currently -- understanding, assessing and managing the risks of complex cyber and/or cyber-physical systems is a very costly and challenging task that requires the expertise of well-trained and seasoned security professionals, a scarce commodity. The traditional approach to risk assessment relies primarily on informal inputs such as documentation and personnel interviews, making this approach subjective, non-comprehensive, non-repeatable, and prone to inaccuracies about the true nature of risks and vulnerabilities involved.

      OMG's C4I Task Force Request For Information (RFI) is currently open for response “Cyber Security Protection for Front Line Real-Time Systems RFI” seeking input on a) How to develop Standards to move Tool/Integration community forward to reduce costs and focus on higher quality system development b) What area of standards can be addressed to reduce cost in developing Cyber Security solutions and designs for systems and c) What can be done to integrate current standards that will allow standards based tools to better support design, development and life-cycle support to reduce costs and control costs.

      We welcome you to join the conversation.
