Security challenges continue to mount for industrial control systems environments dealing with legacy systems scattered across remote locations, long equipment life cycles and adoption of new technologies. The integration of operational and IT networks adds to the challenge. In this new webcast, SANS instructors and analysts Don Weber and Barbara Filkins take look at how to apply the NIST cybersecurity framework (CSF) in these environments, assess risk and requirements, and develop a tiered approach to ICS security. 

The specific application of Fortinet's products for critical infrastructure also will be reviewed and discussed. Through tips for implementation and examples, attendees will learn how to develop their own assessments and requirements, and how to potentially apply specific technologies that support the CSF.

Be among the first to receive the Fortinet product overview written by Don Weber and the implementation guide by Barbara Filkins.
