A Zero-Trust Approach to Segmenting ICS

Learn from a practitioner with 23 years of hands on experience working in Oil and Gas

In today’s converged IT-OT infrastructure, segmentation is a crucial element to network design and is widely accepted as a recommended best practice.  In fact, many argue that the recent high-profile successful cyber-attacks against ICS/SCADA infrastructures could have been prevented or contained if proper segmentation had been in place.

Working with networks that predate modern day best practices; own-operators of these systems must figure out how to address many issues like:

  • How to implement segmentation given the unique circumstance in which ICS must operate
  • The means to define the level of restriction granularity required to protect the process and still empower users to work
  • New technology integrations and compliancy

And most important, how to address these and other serious issues without negatively impacting production. 

Automation systems built and deployed in an era when air gaps existed, brought into the IP age through the use of commercially available off-the-shelf products (COTS); are now exposed the to the same threats as its enterprise counterpart. Come join us as we discuss ways and discover techniques on how next generation security technology can be used to achieve ideal network segmentation.

Attendees will learn from a practitioner with 23 years of hands on experience working in Oil and Gas:

  • Common pitfalls of segmenting in an ICS/SCADA environment
  • Design considerations for greenfield and brownfield deployments
  • How Zero-Trust design principles and concepts can be safely applied to an automation environment
