For many industrial control systems (ICS), trust has historically been assumed. Given the long-term use of these assets, any ICS designed was presumed the that asset owner and manufacturers knew what should and should not be trusted as critical to their systems. As we enter an era of zero trust, we move from presumed trust to assumed breached where nothing is trusted without verification and minimal access is granted. Zero trust introduces challenges that impact the use of legacy equipment, remote access for OEMs and integrators, warranties for automation controls equipment and potential disruption to processes. During this panel, Fortinet and a panel of security leaders will explore the zero trust mindset necessary across OT and IT to secure modern and legacy solutions while supporting remote access and protecting resources (assets, processes, services, etc.) within an network boundary.
Speakers in this session will explain how product engineers can design cybersecurity into product components from the beginning and maintain it throughout the product lifecycle. They will also explain the differences of implementing Public Key Infrastructure between IoT and typical enterprise applications.
One of the biggest challenges organizations face is developing a robust business plan for OT Cybersecurity that creates the right momentum, focus, and budget required to truly make measurable progress against these threats. Join this session to learn more about an effective, cross-industry approach to create the right commitment across an organization.
With investors and Corporate Boardrooms getting more accountability for cyber security and risks through revised rules instituted by the Securities and Exchange Commission, a CEO can either accept, transfer, or invest in cyber protection programs to mitigate the cyber threat to business operations, workforce health and safety, or reputation/brand and asset value. What are the best courses of action based on a risk assessment?
In today’s digital world, cybersecurity threats have become more advanced while the industrial world continues to evolve and get more connected. Because of this, it is crucial to ensure you have a solid understanding of the importance of Industrial Cyber Security, keep a keen eye on cybersecurity trends and threats, and be informed about existing solutions.
