Digital Transformation is here to stay leading to increased cyber threats and attacks. The impact of an OT cyber incident may have dangerous consequences, far worse compared to that of an IT cyber incident. This session provides an overview of the types of threat vectors to industrial cybersecurity, layered security approach and insights on turning cybersecurity into a business enabler.

The Why: Due to the extensive connectivity between enterprise IT systems and OT (Operational Technology) systems, a cyber attack on the corporate system could impact industrial sites if the IT and OT networks are not segmented. This presentation dives into the impact of OT cybersecurity incidents, sample attack scenarios, factors to consider for prioritizing investment in cybersecurity and risk management strategies.

Key Takeaways:

  • How to tie your risk management strategy to your organization's overall business strategy and operational KPIs.
  • Breaking down OT cybersecurity costs and how to maximize investments
  • Gaining internal commitment and alignment to enable an effective cybersecurity strategy

This session is for... you if you are an influencer or decision maker in OT cybersecurity investment, a CISO, CIO or COO, plant manager, IT security professional or control systems engineer.
