Reducing Industrial Risk in a Converging IT/OT World

Rapid adoption of Industrial IoT requires tight integration between IT and OT. CISOs and corporate OT leaders are now scrambling to develop strategies, secure budget, and implement solutions to secure their mission-critical industrial control systems against burgeoning cyber threats. Effective integration of IT and OT cybersecurity strategies is essential to address risks successfully. To secure industrial facilities and ensure safe, reliable production, IT and OT security teams – traditionally two separate disciplines with different priorities – must collaborate and share cybersecurity and risk management best practices.

In a series of interviews in late 2017 and early 2018, more than 20 different experts on the front lines
of OT cybersecurity risk mitigation shared practical advice for making control systems more secure.
These experts represented a diverse range of industries including oil and gas, chemicals and refining, and power generation.

In their interviews, they shared their insights into how to leverage IT/OT convergence and develop an effective OT cybersecurity program that meets challenges in real-world ICS environments. Technology plays an important role, but as these experts also point out, more technology isn’t always the solution.
Just as important is the need to establish effective communication and trust between cybersecurity professionals and OT engineers.

Security project teams must make a concerted effort to create alignment between business
management, the cybersecurity community, and OT professionals. Without alignment, security
initiatives will fail to attain the support required to ensure success.
In this presentation, attendees will learn:  
  • Practical, real-world recommendations from OT cybersecurity experts
  • Best practices for breaking down barriers and building trust between cybersecurity professionals and OT engineers
  • How to align business management and plant operations on cybersecurity strategies
