Practical Guide for Remote Access to Plant Equipment

Best practices used in manufacturing to define, analyze, control, improve and secure Remote Access.
With this in mind, The Organization for Machine Automation and Control (OMAC) convened a “Remote Access Workgroup” of 37 elite leaders representing major manufacturing companies, OEMs, system integrators, and automation vendors to create a comprehensive guide. Facilitated by ei3 Corporation and sponsored by OMAC, this guide for network-based Remote Access and data collection methods for industrial applications is based on comprehensive research of existing technologies, deployed solutions, and emerging requirements in terms of security and privacy.
The "Security Considerations for Remote Access" document provides a broad perspective and insights from an experienced group of 47 members representing End Users, and the OEMs, System Integrators, and Equipment Suppliers that support them.
This document is the result of the assistance of many individuals from around the world, representing end users, OEMs, system integrators, and automation vendors. Involving various individuals from the automation ecosystem provides a broader outlook at this topic which balances the requirements o the users with the services of the supplier.
