Secure and Reliable Public Utilities

Presented by

Rick Peters, Field CISO, Operational Technology and Christopher Blauvelt, Director, Operational Technology

About this talk

As public utilities modernize their critical infrastructure, they are integrating their operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) networks to encourage operational efficiency. However, the elimination of the physical separation—the so-called air gap—between the IT and OT environments presents a significant opportunity for cyber criminals. Once separated from the IT network and public internet, risk to connected OT systems has never been greater. During this 45-minute webinar, we will explore the impact and considerations for safe and secure operations including the value the Fortinet Security Fabric can deliver for securing industrial controls and SCADA systems. Our discussion will include how you can: • Safely and securely optimize operations as you digitize business processes • Recognize the value of neutralizing threats in real time and sustained situational awareness to inform decision making • Secure aging equipment without impacting safety, uptime and time-to-market
