Is your organization thinking of purchasing a COTS (Commercially off the Shelf) Security Solution for your ICS Environment? Proceed with caution as many ICS networks are not as ready as you might think for a successful deployment! Many of the COTS solutions can help an organization drive security improvements in your ICS but if not planed and deployed correctly can cause a lot of operational challenges. 


Join Shells Paul Piotrowski and Accentures Kevin van der Veen and Manjit Duhra for an invaluable session to learn what common pitfalls organizations face when they prematurely deploy enterprise level security solutions in their ICS networks. Real deployment examples and best practices will be shared to help make your next deployment a success.
