Zweitägiges Programm mit Top-Rednern und Praktikern, die Wissen über Cybersicherheit, Arbeitssicherheit und einen Öl- und Gasausblick austauschen

Bangkok, Thailand, @mcgallen#microwireinfo, 24. Oktober 2018 - HIMA, the leading provider of smart safety solutions for industrial applications, launches the first ever HIMA Users Conference Asia Pacific 2018 in Bangkok, Thailand, from October 24 to 25, 2018, at the Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Towers (Bangrak, Bangkok).

The inaugural Users Conference provides deep industry insights on topics such as Cybersecurity, Industrial Safety, and trends of the Oil & Gas Industry in Asia Pacific. Among the top speakers are Steffen Philipp, Managing Partner, HIMA, Sankar Ramakrishnan, CEO, Taweelarp Pornkul, VP, PTT Energy Solutions, and Bob Gill, GM South East Asia, ARC Advisory Group.

"Sicherheit" für den Industriesektor

Während Industrieanlagen und Infrastrukturen nur durch ihre funktionale Sicherheit angemessen und angemessen sind, hat sich das Feld dahingehend verändert, dass es heute sowohl Sicherheit als auch Schutz erfordert.

“Safecurity” is a natural evolution of HIMA’s laser focus on bringing Smart Safety and Security together for industrial applications. While the world defends and protects against hackers in e-commerce, financial services, healthcare, government and other sectors, the industrial sector is often neglected in terms of cybersecurity.

HIMA has pioneered the convergence of managing both safety and security together, so that plants and infrastructures will always work well under pressure, and will not succumb to cyberattacks. Already, nine out of ten of the biggest gas companies and ten out of ten of the largest oil companies in the world rely on HIMA technologies. Standards are everything, and HIMA covers the world’s highest safety standards, ensuring that customers will comply with regulatory requirements and be ready for the future.

Leading analyst group Frost & Sullivan recognized HIMA in June 2018, with the “Asia Pacific Process Safety System Growth Excellence Leadership Award”, a gratifying recognition for 110 years of excellence at HIMA.

Eröffnungseinreise nach Thailand mit Wissensplattform

“Thailand hosts one of the region’s most developed and advanced oil and gas and industrial chemicals markets, and has practitioners from the Kingdom and the region thirsting for practical and actionable knowledge. Industrial facilities and critical infrastructures are also becoming incredibly complex, with the advent of Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). With the encroachment of cybersecurity and legal compliance into the industrial space, there is now a critical need to not only ensure industrial plants and critical infrastructures work around the clock without fail, but also ensure hackers are kept at bay from crippling or holding at ransom these plants and infrastructures,” says Friedhelm Best, Vice President, Asia Pacific, HIMA. “Having installed more than 35,000 TÜV-certified safety systems worldwide over the last 45 years, we have pioneered the actionable systems philosophy of ‘Safecurity’, where Safety and Security are tightly intertwined to provide fail-safe systems at plants and infrastructures around the world. At the Users Conference 2018 in Bangkok, we have gathered a panel of pracitioner-speakers to ensure that our colleagues from diverse industrial fields come together to learn and share together the mission-critical knowledge and actionable insights of ‘Safecurity’.”

With an estimated 70% of attendees coming from Thailand’s major oil and gas industries, practitioners and experts alike are converging at the inaugural HIMA Users Conference Asia Pacific 2018 to find practical solutions to specific challenges to the industry, especially with fast changing processes and value chains, including safety and cybersecurity. With bottom lines and profits becoming razor-thin especially against volatile resource pricing and cross-border tussles worldwide, there is a greater need to find better ways to profitability and sustainability. The Users Conference brings together the best minds to define better profitability and sustainability scenarios and cases. It is also the best singular platform to network with new colleagues and partners.
