Summit Format: Virtual

Event Overview

Tremendous gains are being achieved in industrial applications by sharing and analyzing data, but we need professionals who can address the security challenges. With many organizations focusing their information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) teams on securing the control network and gathering as much information as possible, it is important to maintain secure and reliable operations in the face of determined threats.

Many organizations would consider the finding of actionable intelligence that allows leadership to make informed decisions to be a success. However, this influx of information will, eventually, lead to the identification of anomalous events. These events will lead to the identification of malicious activity. This activity will leave most organizations incident response teams failing at handling actual security incidents, increasing downtime, and difficulties returning to 100% production. Successful organizations focus on training their team to effectively respond to an incident and the deployment of technology designed for prevention and identification.

How organizations prepare their IT and OT teams for security incidents is often dependent on what techniques and tools are available. Teams can use the latest solutions to increase the identification, containment, and eradication of suspicious or malicious activities and overall improve response times and reduce recovery efforts.

 This forum will explore various ICS topics, ranging from logic controllers (PLCs) to distributed controls systems (DCSs), through invited speakers while showcasing current capabilities available today. Presentations will focus on case-studies and thought leadership using specific examples relevant to the industry as we know it.

Relevant topics:

  • IT/OT Security Operations Centers
  • Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA)
  • NERC Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP)
  • Distributed Control System (DCS)
  • Governance Models and Resources for ICS Professionals
  • Approaches to System and Network Defense Architectures and Techniques
