Industrial operators have traditionally faced a difficult choice --shut down use of convenient portable media like USB storage devices, or open up their network to security threats. In this Webinar, learn how companies in the Oil & Gas, Pulp & Paper, and other process industries are tightly controlling and monitoring USBs to ensure plant operations are both safe and productive. The latest behavioral USB attacks will be explained, as well as recent research revealing that nearly half (44%) of industrial sites surveyed detected and blocked at least one malicious or suspicious USB file. Walk away with scalable and efficient USB security best practices that meet industry cybersecurity standards, reduce your portable media risks, and keep your plant compliant.
