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.
Next Generation Cybersecurity in the Age of IT/OT Convergence
The network is an expanding perimeter of billions of edges that have to be managed and protected. As information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) converge, leaders are challenged to protect the enterprise against advanced threats across an expanding attack surface and a complex ecosystem which includes too many vendors, too many alerts and slow response. On top of this, organizations must balance increasing compliance and regulatory requirements.
It is imperative that today’s organizations evolve their security posture, yet gaining the necessary investment may be challenging when the cost of doing nothing is hard to quantify. How can you gain the necessary buy in from executives that see security as a competing force against agility and performance? How can you look at security in a more holistic view? And how do demonstrate the value of security to all strata of the business as a critical component of continuity?
Please join ISMG’s Nick Holland for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on how industrial controls can meet the demands of safety, availability and security in today’s digitally connected environment.
Discussion topics will include:
- What are the greatest challenges in gaining buy in for security investments for what are, in many ways, threats without precedent?
- How can you ensure that you are secure? Is complete visibility a pipe dream?
- What steps can you take to balance the security priorities of the business with the people, processes and culture of the organization?
- How do I develop security ambassadors in teams that still see security as an operational hindrance?
Joining Nick to provide expert insight and case studies is Michelle Balderson, Director of Operational Technology and Critical Infrastructure at Fortinet.
