Today's data centers are complex industrial-scale facilities sitting squarely at the intersection of operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT).

Securing these strategic revenue-generating facilities requires addressing diverse technologies, from the industrial control systems (ICS) and IoT devices managing HVAC, power, and water; to physical security and building access control systems; to diverse networks including LAN/WAN, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and cellular/mobile; plus the tools used by oursourced vendors, facility personnel, and engineers to manage OT equipment and servers.

In this educational webinar led by the head of Microsoft's data center security program, you'll learn how to:

  • Implement continuous OT security monitoring to identify IoT/OT assets, vulnerabilities, and threats
  • Use Azure Sentinel to build a cloud-scale stack for correlating and detecting cyber incidents across IT and OT
  • Develop OT-specific incident response playbooks and processes
  • Define standard metrics to track and measure OT security posture
  • Build a strong and empathetic culture that removes silos between IT and OT teams
