ISMG’s Virtual Roundtables focus on specific challenges being faced by information security executives in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Moderated by one of ISMG’s Executive Editors and a guest industry expert, Virtual Roundtables give cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to discuss threats and controls with a handful of market leaders in an informal and online setting, from which you will emerge with new ideas and solutions you can immediately put to work to improve your own organization’s defensive posture.
Securing IT and OT Convergence for 2021 and Beyond
Nick Holland – Executive Editor, ISMG / Wayne Dixon – Director, OT Management, Forescout
The ongoing convergence of information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) networks is increasing the complexity and vulnerability of previously isolated industrial control system (ICS) networks. This is taking place alongside the explosive growth of Industrial IoT (IIoT) devices, which has created a significant visibility gap and made compliance enforcement more difficult.
How do security teams identify, classify and control all connected IIoT systems, OT assets and IT devices? How do you analyze alerts, prioritize threats and respond to incidents in a timely manner with minimal business disruption. And what are the tools and technologies you need to maintain an accurate, up-to-date asset inventory?
Please join ISMG’s Nick Holland for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on the challenges and opportunities of IT / OT convergence today.
Discussion topics will include:
- Where do I begin identifying, classifying and controlling all connected IIoT systems, OT assets and IT devices – managed and unmanaged?
- How do I triage response to incidents in a timely manner with minimal business disruption?
- What are strategies for making sure all connected devices – even legacy OT systems – comply with regulatory requirements and policies?
- What tools and technologies do I need to maintain an accurate, up-to-date asset inventory?
- What should be on my 2021 roadmap for IT / OT convergence best practices?
Joining Nick to provide expert insight and case studies is Wayne Dixon, Director, OT Management, at Forescout Technologies, Inc.
