Segmentation as a Means of Achieving System Reliability

  • Lunch & Learn, Presented by Securicon
  • Daniel Chew, Securicon
  • Tuesday, March 18th, 12:00pm - 1:15pm

System Reliability is a paramount condition for any critical infrastructure environment. From power generation to manufacturing to network systems, the mantra that is preached for these systems today is ‚running all the time, every time.‚ The increased integration of ICS systems and Information Technology systems adds a layer of complexity for both ICS and IT operators.

ICS and IT operators face major challenges, not only having interconnected systems but more importantly the responsibility of maintaining reliability for their respective systems on a daily 24 hour basis. Operational and business requirements often dictate the actions that operators can carry out. A component to helping achieve system reliability that is often overlooked and typically out of operator hands is Segmentation ‚ sometimes referred to as ‚zoning.‚

In this Lunch and Learn, Securicon engineers will talk through examples and explore real-world scenarios of segmentation that represent both strong approaches and those that create weaknesses to be exploited. Attendees will come away with an understanding of ICS and IT network segmentation and its role in not only protecting your systems, but also how segmentation can help with keeping your systems up and running.
