ICS and infrastructure are under attack. But even as practitioners fight the battle against malware, breaches and other incidents, the pace of OT/IT convergence continues to accelerate. What can security teams do to understand, prevent and protect their critical assets and data?

In this interactive panel webcast, SANS Director of Industrials and Infrastructure Business Portfolio Doug Wylie and SANS Research Director Barbara Filkins will discuss key issues related to security in the age of convergence with industry experts from Nozomi Networks, Radiflow and Yokogawa.

Topics will include:

  • How are ICS network architectures evolving for security today and in the future?
  • Are security investments increasing or decreasing, and what does that mean for security maturity and effectiveness?

The panel also will examine how people, processes and technology will mature ICS security, and how practitioners can better manage that evolution. Register now and bring your questions. Attendees also will have access to a new paper based on recent SANS research into OT/IT security.
