About this talk

OT assets and networks should no longer be viewed in isolation by security practitioners. As recent malware and ransomware attacks have proven, IT and OT devices are both vulnerable, and attacks on IT systems can drastically impact OT systems. Shutting down OT networks has serious consequences from both financial and societal perspectives. To secure OT networks, organizations need to stop treating them as separate siloes. It’s the best way to gain visibility beyond OT environments and tighten security across the entire enterprise. Join this 30-minute session to learn about key elements for an effective cybersecurity program and how to make IT-OT convergence successful. Three experts on IT-OT network security will share their insights into the most important threats and trends during a general panel discussion. Key takeaways from the webinar: – Highlights of the pivotal security events of 2021 – Trends in IT/OT convergence and compliance regulations – Predictions for 2022 Q&A to follow panel discussion. Speakers: Jason Holcomb, Accenture Security Innovation Principal Director - OT Security Christina Hoefer, Forescout VP Global Industrial Enterprise Brian Proctor, Forescout OT Principal Strategist
