Digital transformation through the convergence of operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) has created smarter, highly computerised environments that enhance productivity but leave organisations vulnerable to attacks.
During our dinner we’ll discuss some of the challenges presented by this paradigm shift including supply chain risk, maintainability, safety, reliability, availability, compliance and skill shortages.
How can your business stop the controls and mitigations becoming contributory to the problem you set out to solve in the first place?
We’ll also discuss and share practical advice on how to prepare and respond to OT/IT related cyber attacks.
- How have you approached the segregation of IT and OT networks in the event of a cyber security incident, given that the number of interdependencies is increasing, especially in key areas like safety.
- How do you respond to an OT cyber security incident and do you give consideration to the wider enterprise impact? Do you simply re flash the OT infrastructure to commence production or conduct wider forensics?
- Can't upgrade OT environment? What's the cost of a couple of days downtime for upgrade versus weeks/months of downtime in the aftermath of an attack?
