Advanced Threat Protection for Operational Technology

Presented by

Rod Locke, Director Product Management, Fortinet

About this talk

Traditionally, OT network security plans relied upon a physical disconnect between OT and IT networks. But with the digital transformation of OT, connections to IT and Cloud environments are increasing. Although digital transformation is a clear trend with business benefits, the process brings with it a number of security challenges. Key takeaways from this session include: - Understanding the risk of the evolving threat landscape targeting industrial environments - Applying application control signatures to reduce the attack surface for ICS and OT - Protecting vulnerable and unpatched OT systems from exploitation

For more than a decade, Fortinet has protected OT environments in critical infrastructure sectors such as energy, defense, manufacturing, food, and transportation. By designing security into complex infrastructure via the Fortinet Security Fabric, organizations have an efficient, non-disruptive way to ensure that the OT environment is protected and compliant. Most OT environments run legacy systems and protocols that are sensitive to disruption and lack effective security. Industrial environments once built to operate in isolated networks are now connected to the internet, exposing them to all the threats that plague IT networks. In addition, many OT organizations rely on OEMs and service providers to operate and maintain converged IT/OT networks remotely. This adds risk by both expanding the attack surface and inserting the potential for access by bad actors. The Fortinet Security Fabric seamlessly enables security for converged IT/OT ecosystems. It also provides OT-centric features and products to extend Security-Fabric capabilities to OT networks in factories, plants, remote locations, and ships. To help alleviate security risks across the organization, we’ve continued to enhance our OT security offerings. These innovations range from edge products to NOC and SOC tools and services to ensure effective and efficient networking and cybersecurity performance and operation.
