The convergence of IT and OT has happened, but are you left scratching your head as to where to start and what cyber tools or planning are right for your companys cyber security strategy? The OT industrial environment for the past 30 years has depend heavily on the idea that it was safe from threats and malicious hacker attention by implementing the concept of simply air-gapping. Over the last couple of years we as an industry we have experienced that air-gapping is not the silver-bullet we thought it to be and that campaigned and even individual threats are becoming even more sophisticated, targeting both industrial controls and even safety systems. The bigger problem is where to start and what do you do first. This webinar will look at the misconceptions of the past and begin to outline the thought leadership and tools you will need to develop a Cyber Program that fits your most immediate needs and remains flexible enough to grow and evolve as quickly as the cyber threat does.
