Real-time protection for industrial control systems and operational technology (OT) networks

Critical infrastructure systems and OT environments should not just be protected from intruders but, more importantly, resilient to potential cyber threats and attacks. Where traditional IT cybersecurity protects critical systems by layering barriers in front of potential adversaries to keep them at bay, protecting OT systems should assume a determined adversary will gain access &mdsah; a fact of today's industrial cyber threat landscape.

When today’s adversaries breach the business network, what is your last line of defense protecting crucial the industrial control systems environment controlling physical processes like temperature, pressure, flow, level, and speed? Addressing the cyber threats where they are most catastrophic is where OT cybersecurity needs to begin.

Originally presented during InfraGard's virtual session, this on-demand webinar discusses the difference between it and ot security and the ins and outs for securing ICS and OT networks from cyber-attacks.
