Securing Industrial Control Systems (ICS) is a vital task and one that, up until recently, was relatively easy because of separation and siloes. However, with the introduction of opportunities for improved asset performance using IoT sensors, securing ICS has become infinitely more complicated.
The Internet of Things introduces significant opportunities to improve asset performance, introduce new service offerings, and other wise drive operational efficiency for communications providers, power companies, mass transit systems, water treatment plants, and other industrial and manufacturing systems. However, the core systems and machinery within these systems were never intended to be connected to the network. Essentially, there is no native security baked into their design and so this drive for connectivity is creating new risks and complexity.
To help the nation’s critical infrastructure providers build robust defenses that protect these critical systems from an unyielding threat environment, Blue Ridge Networks is hosting an educational webinar focused on how organizations and integrators can increase their cyber security posture with maximum efficiency and effectiveness. As well as gaining insight on how to mitigate imminent threats to ICS and other critical network infrastructure, the conversation will focus on the most difficult challenge for ICS cyber teams: how to secure open networks to enable access to remote workers, vendors, and partners, while preventing the lateral movement of malware.
Given the importance of ICS to public safety and the performance the U.S. economy, this is a must-attend event for cyber professionals at all levels of government, as well as those in the private sector.
