What If You Can’t Patch?

As the latest rash of NotPetya and WannaCry ransomware proved, simply patching systems and device applications can go a long way to reducing the risk of cyberattack. However, within critical infrastructure, there are often systems and applications that cannot be patched because they are outdated, inaccessible, have no free memory, or more commonly because they work as is, and no one wants to risk an update. That being said, even being “up-to-date” doesn’t necessarily mean that all vulnerabilities have been patched. It’s possible that no one outside of a few elite hackers knows the vulnerabilities exist, leading to "zero-day" exploit attacks, for which again, there is no way to patch. So what do you do if you can’t patch? Featuring guidance from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, FBI, NERC and NRC, this session will cover a variety of cybersecurity technologies, devices, and best practices applied in real life scenarios and use cases to protect critical systems and applications that cannot be patched.
