Become a Technical Partner of IEC/TC65 and the Automation Forum

With the organization of the IEC / TC 65 meetings and the Automation Forum in 2020, we are promoting an important role for the Netherlands in the international standardization process on the theme of "Industrial measurement, control and automation".

We will host a 14-day event with a large Automation Forum that provides opportunities for partners to network and develop relationships with customers from around the world.

Introduction:

Every 18 months the IEC/TC65 is gathering somewhere in the world to talk about standardization. In 2020 NEN will host this event. As this global technical committee is a large committee with over 200 experts it is a real challenge to host this 14-day event. Several working groups will meet as well as the technical committee and the 4 subcommittees.

Part of the event is the Automation Forum. The Automation Forum is a place for sharing information about the automation industry in the industrial sector and sharing information on IEC. It provides an opportunity to consider its importance of international standards.

We encourage you to join us and register now to best leverage and maximize your investment. We look forward to welcome you and thank you for supporting this meeting as a sponsor.

Introduction

The Automation Forum is a place for sharing information about the automation industry in the industrial sector and sharing information on IEC. It provides an opportunity to consider its importance of international standards and also to network and develop relationships with customers from around the world.

Background information

Every 18 months the IEC/TC65 is hosted somewhere in the world. In 2020 NEN will host this event, where the technical committee with over 200 experts are gathered. Several working groups will meet as well as the technical committee and the 4 subcommittees. At the last day of these meetings, an event will be organized, called The Automation Forum. The Automation Forum is a place for sharing information about the automation industry in the industrial sector and sharing information on IEC. It provides an opportunity to consider its importance of international standards.

The Automation Forum

Mobile connectivity has greatly expanded, so that we can be connected anywhere, anytime, while the number of connected, low-power sensors and devices continues to grow. Minuscule sensors, industrial robots, vehicles, smart buildings, medical and other wearables are all part of the IoT.
As more and more objects are connected, communicate and interact with each other, they become building blocks in larger systems. Known and unknown vulnerabilities in this wealth of objects are bound to attract cyber attacks that can bring down entire critical installations in many countries. Protection of (I)IoT components against cyber threats, as well as of the systems that integrate them, is fast becoming a key priority.

Very often, little or no attention is paid at the design stage to ensure these connected objects are secure against malicious attacks. Much more serious attacks can be mounted through connected devices.
The industrial IoT (IIoT) world covers applications in smart grids, smart cities, smart mobility, smart factories, healthcare services and, increasingly, smart farming. As such it encompasses many critical sectors. IIoT brings together two different technologies: operational technology (OT) and information and communication technology (ICT), each one covering different yet sometimes overlapping domains.

OT covers the use of computers to monitor or alter the physical state of a system, such as the control systems of industrial or power installations. It focuses, to a great extent, on safety (i.e., ensuring that processes and operations are reliable and comply with laws and standards and that the safety of workers and other people is guaranteed).

As more businesses adopt (I)IoT, the complex systems and platforms required for it to function efficiently will need to be interoperable, reliable and secure.
IEC produces consensus-based International Standards which help achieve this for many parts of the soft- and hardware that make up the (I)IoT.

On April 2, 2020 this will be the topic of the Automation Forum. About seven speakers will take you into the world of process automation and standardization. Different subjects will be presented, including Industrial cyber security, functional safety, smart manufacturing, the need of standards, IIoT.

We encourage you to join us and register now.
