In recent years, we’ve seen highly sophisticated attacks on industrial systems that have interrupted operations and caused damage. As organizations implement new technology to improve their productivity and efficiency, adversaries evolve—and security teams are racing to find and adopt innovative approaches to safeguard systems and mitigate risk.

The industrial sector is a major target of cyber-attacks due to having little to no visibility into the assets they need to protect, and the lack of segmentation between IT and OT networks.

Listen to the leaders — learn to better defend your critical assets.
