  • Speakers: Ted Gary, Doug Wylie, Dean Parsons

As the convergence of business networks with control systems races forward, operational technology (OT) systems become increasingly vulnerable to cyber attacks. What can you do to better manage this evolution and mitigate security risks? Find out. Join Doug Wylie, director of the SANS Industrials and Infrastructure business portfolio and guests from Tenable, who will explore topics such as:

  • Key tasks for effectively securing converged IT/OT environments
  • How to discover and assess connected assets as you move toward a more effective application of critical security controls
  • Important considerations for passive monitoring and active scanning
  • Assessing assets for known vulnerabilities, patching strategies and techniques for more effective lifecycle management of IT and OT architectures
