ISA Inside education will discuss ANSI/ISA99
The ISA Inside course on Sept. 10-11 at IMTS 2014 is a great example of that kind of education will provide a detailed look at how the ANSI/ISA99 standards can be used to protect critical control systems.
Continuing education is a key component in the 2014 IMTS event Sept. 8-13 at Chicago's McCormick Place. The ISA Inside course on Sept. 10-11 is a great example of that kind of education.
Sponsored by the International Society for Automation (ISA), the two-day educational conference will provide a detailed look at how the ANSI/ISA99 standards can be used to protect critical control systems. It also explores the procedural and technical differences between the security for traditional IT environments and those solutions appropriate for SCADA or plant floor environments. Participants will receive 1.4 CEU Credits.
CFE Media will sponsor the 2014 Global Automation and Manufacturing Summit on Sept. 10 starting at 8:15 a.m. in Room W190 in the West Wing of McCormick Place.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
