Blurred boundaries between IT, OT, and IoT demand a more integrated, collaborative cybersecurity strategy. ARC Advisory Group's Eric Cosman joins Doug Wylie, Director of Industrials & Infrastructure Practice at SANS Institute to discuss our 3 steps towards a hybrid IT/OT organization.

We will discuss:

  • Considerations of Industry Risk
  • Why Security for Automation Matters
  • Risk Mitigation Strategies

Challenges continue to grow for the industrial cybersecurity community. Broader deployment of operational technology is expanding the use cases requiring protection. Resource shortages are undermining the effectiveness of established defenses. Join us at the ARC Forum in Orlando, February 12-15 where well continue the conversation in our Cybersecurity and Safety track.
