As more and more industrial devices connect to corporate networks, and therefore the internet, SCADA and industrial control systems become increasingly vulnerable to attack.  Some consider them low hanging fruit given many run unpatched and have been in place for more than 20 years.  OT systems around the world are barraged with both recycled IT-based attacks and purpose-built OT exploits. One survey finds that 74% of OT professionals had experienced a breachin the past 12 months. During this session, we will explore the impact and considerations for safe and secure operations including the need to:
  • Evaluate the architecture needed to secure aging equipment and neutralize the impact on safety, uptime and time-to-market
  • Explore the Cybersecurity Maturity Scale to leverage data analytics, threat intelligence and sustained situational awareness to inform decision making
  • Understand how the Fortinet Security Fabric can provide foundation for securing industrial controls and SCADA systems in any environment
