Protecting the ICS through Segmentation

Presented by

Lionel Jacobs - Sr. Architect, Industrial Controls Systems - Palo Alto Networks

About this talk

Segmentation is a crucial element to modern network design and accepted widely as a recommended best practice. It is believed that many of the current successful cyber-attacks against ICS/SCADA infrastructures could have been prevented or contained if proper segmentation had been in place. Unfortunately, many existing ICS/SCADA systems predate modern best practices. Owner-operators are challenged to face cybersecurity risks with outdated defense mechanisms. Implemented during an era where air gaps existed, the use of commercially available off-the-shelf products (COTS) have connected the serial based on brownfield systems into the industrial Internet of things (IIoT). In doing so exposing the ICS/SCADA to the same threats and perils as its enterprise counterpart. Come join us as we discuss ways and techniques that Palo Alto Networks NGFW can be used to achieve ideal network segmentation.
