Update: Welcome scadasec Digest readers. Much work needs to be done with cybersecurity technology and work processes before Anand’s vision might be realized. Emerson’s Anand Iyer explores offshoring control rooms in today’s guest post. I wonder what Elmore Leonard would have said to this. Every generation faces an extinction of a profession and many struggle […]
