About this talk

Digital transformation has allowed businesses of all varieties to expand and take advantage of connectivity and remote access, with OT environments included. The difference for OT versus the masses - many previously air-gapped systems are colliding with the internet creating security and production risks, exposing vulnerabilities and creating opportunities for bad actors. So, what happens with this absolute need to shift from a legacy implied trust model to a Zero Trust model? And how can this be implemented seamlessly across and within critical infrastructures? We encourage you to join this timely and intuitive discussion with our special guest from Forrester providing an analyst perspective on Zero Trust trends, what to pay attention to and the short- and long-term value. Plus, a unique perspective from both parties on: • Common misconceptions of Zero Trust in OT • Key criteria and strategies for approaching Zero Trust implementation • Aspects of successfully deploying Zero Trust in OT environments Speakers: Brian Wrozek Principal Analyst, Forrester Rich Springer Director Marketing of OT Solutions, Fortinet Eric Schwake Director of Product Marketing, Fortinet
