Industrial Cybersecurity - Managing Your Business Risk

About this talk
Today, operational technology (OT) and industrial systems are an important element of modern life. From product manufacturing through to oil, gas and transport networks computer-controlled processes and operations reduce costs and improve productivity.
Managing these assets to ensure better availability and output is a tough challenge, and balancing this with changing business requirements, governance, risk and compliance (GRC) issues makes it even harder.
Unfortunately, these systems are now facing another challenge – the increasing threat from hackers, hacktivists and nation-states. Safety critical controls are also being targeted, and if these are compromised serious damage and injuries could be the end result.
Although there is an ever-growing threat of cybersecurity events and incidents impacting OT systems many organisations have not yet run a comprehensive risk assessment for these systems. In fact, in a survey conducted by TUV Rheinland in 2019, 74% of respondents had either never conducted a cybersecurity risk review of their OT systems or were unaware if such a risk review had been completed.
During this panel-based webinar, experts from TUV Rheinland and 2MC will discuss in detail:
- How the role of GRC has a significant part to play in many OT deployments
- By coupling real-time monitoring with a risk-based mindset, underpinned by a governance, risk and compliance approach, an operator of OT equipment can embrace cybersecurity challenges
- How crucial risk assessments need not be overly time consuming or complex
- How production assets can be safely utilised in response to ever-changing business demands
