About this talk

OT continues to be a target by cybercriminals at a high rate. In fact, a recent study reveals that 75% of OT organizations experienced at least one intrusion in the last year. The research revealed nearly one-third of respondents reported being victims of a ransomware attack in the last year (32%, unchanged from 2022). To tackle common OT security challenges, industrial organizations can reduce complexity by adopting a cybersecurity platform strategy. Listen in as a panel of operational technology leaders unpack the key findings of The 2023 State of Operational Technology and Cybersecurity Report. The panel will explore the impact on industrial asset owners and operators as physical and cyber processes converge.

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.
