Biometric Security for Control Systems

We are a little bit early in the process yet to be worrying too much about Site Security Plans, but there is going to be a teleconference next week that will be looking at biometrics and security systems that Security Managers might want to pay attention to. The teleconference is being sponsored by IBG, a biometrics provider, and can be watched on the web live or archived after the event.


One of the problems that many chemical manufacturing sites will have with their security plans is that the best way to attack many of their critical assets will be through their automated control systems. While there are many things that can be done to help to prevent off-site access to these systems, hardening the on-site controls to prevent unauthorized access is more difficult. One of the options is to use biometrics to control access to the controls.
