Approaching Cybersecurity Vendor Selection in OT Environments

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The world of Operational Technology (OT) in manufacturing and ICS environments presents its own unique challenges and considerations when selecting cybersecurity vendors. Operational requirements can vary widely from oil and gas to refining, chemical, power generation, and other industrial and critical infrastructure applications. Resources, work practices and procedures, and adoption of standards and best practices as they relate to both cybersecurity and overall operational technology also vary widely. The convergence of Information and Operational technology in manufacturing enterprises is at the forefront of end user concerns as they struggle to implement secure Industrial Internet of Things solutions. Larry O'Brien will share ARC's own approach to cybersecurity vendor selection in the ICS and OT worlds with a focus on lifecycle perspective of the plant or facility and a “future proof” roadmap that reduces risk and provides value to the overall business.
