ISSSource.comThe new era of Ethernet and wireless networking in industrial applications has increased security concerns to an all time high, and for good reason.

Today’s industrial network professionals must understand how to maintain data integrity, while implementing measures to prevent network intrusions and eavesdropping.

Join Phoenix Contact’s Ira Sharp and the editors of Industrial Safety and Security Source (ISSSource.com) for a webinar entitled “Network Security in a Wireless World.”

You will learn what security risks exist in wireless Ethernet networking, and what you can do to eliminate them.

Wireless security topics discussed:

  • Wireless Ethernet networking standards
  • What security risks exist
  • Encryption and authentication — what’s good and what’s not so good
  • What can you do to protect your facility.
