Presentation Abstract:

Cyber threats to industrial facilities are increasing in frequency, sophistication, and severity. Merely isolating your plant's control network is not enough. USB keys, corrupted patches, project files transmitted in emails, poorly secured laptops, or infected PDF user manuals - all represent paths into an industrial site. This presentation will help plant managers identify where their systems may be vulnerable, understand the measures needed - and technologies available - to prevent network attacks, and recognize why security improves plant floor reliability and safety.


Key Take-Aways:

  • Learn why your networks and systems are vulnerable
  • Understand how security threats will evolve in the next few years
  • Recognize standards and certifications that help ensure high security
  • Discover security technologies that can prevent network attacks
