    Automation runs the modern society and it’s critical systems. It is anetworked software product depending on the co-operation of old and new technologies.Information security for automation systems should be regarded in light ofthe most important quality required from automation—dependability. This chapterfocuses on process of developing dependable solutions for the entire lifecycle ofautomation systems. The approach includes a guideline for securing automation anda dependability model that is a data flow model extended with security and automationrequirements. Results of this analysis should be used in final requirementspecification for implementation. Dependability model is the key tool in securedevelopment lifecycle. It can be used in new product development, improving anold automation system and also during the active lifecycle of automation to manage inevitable changes occurring during the entire lifespan of automation system.
