The Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) is unlocking new levels of productivity, helping organizations improve safety, increase output, and maximize revenue. At the same time, digitalization is driving deployment of billions of IIoT devices and increased connectivity between IT and Operational Technology (OT) networks, increasing the attack surface and risk of cyberattacks on industrial control systems.

This webinar will discuss how to secure ICS and SCADA environments using the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform and CyberX's purpose-built ICS cybersecurity platform.


  • Overview of ICS/SCADA security basics
  • State of ICS Security: Findings of the CyberX "Global ICS & IIoT Risk Report"
  • How Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewall and advanced endpoint protection technologies can be used to segment ICS networks, control ICS protocols, and block network threats as well as unknown threats on ICS hosts such as HMIs, engineering workstations, and automation servers.
  • How CyberXs out-of-the-box, API-level integration with Palo Alto Networks provides automated asset tagging, granular asset-based policies, and real-time response to ICS-specific threats. Well also learn how CyberXs automated ICS threat modeling can be used to prioritize and simulate mitigation of attack vectors on the organizations crown jewel OT assets and processes.

Dharminder Debisarun

Dharminder, has extensive expertise in (industrial) IoT and manufacturing security – including connected car and airlines. He is member of ENISA’s (The European Union Agency for Network and Information Security) expert group for Industry 4.0. As the subject matter expert, he has technical expertise and direct exposure to these topics, as a leader in Palo Alto Networks. He is based in Amsterdam and works closely with customers and partners globally for understanding their pain points and needs. With over 20 years of IT experience he is bridging the gap between IT/OT and the business needs. Dharminder also speaks extensively on ICS/SCADA security across Europe and beyond. Previous joining Palo Alto Networks Dharminder was leading IT-Operations and implemented four software-defined data centres, which provided him first-hand experience with the fact that security automation is moving beyond prevention and detection technologies: cyberattacks are inevitable we must learn how to recognize the often-subtle signs of an attack as well as respond effectively and swiftly to limit the damage that security breaches could do to the businesses.
