Two of the biggest challenges in protecting OT environments are:

∑††††††The lack of visibility into industrial control network assets and normal communication patterns

∑††††††The risk of operational disruption from implementing security controls.

In this webinar Stefan Woronka, Director of Industrial Security Services at Siemens, and Patrick McBride, Chief Marketing Officer at Claroty will discuss the realities of cyber risk in industrial systems and discuss a reference architecture for protecting industrial control systems with particular focus on key security controls such as continuous monitoring, anomaly detection, and maintaining secure remote access for employees and third-party vendors/supply chain partners.

Youll learn how zero-impact monitoring & anomaly detection can help maintain complete visibility of your ICS network and protect against cyberthreats without creating disruption or putting productivity at risk.Stefan and Patrick will also outline a reference architecture and share use cases from the field to demonstrate how this architecture could have reduced or prevented actual attacks.
