Manufacturing organizations increasingly rely on intelligent and internet-enabled technologies to achieve advanced and smart manufacturing capabilities. As the production environment increasingly becomes digitized, manufacturers strive to secure the growing number of enabled IoT devices while maintaining business imperatives like operational efficiency, continuity of operations, product integrity, and compliance. The cybersecurity implications of this trend are substantial, given an increased attack surface attractive to the bad actor, and an infrastructure that mixes modern and legacy technologies.
Join us for this webinar during the Cybersecurity Week to get expert insight on this subject.
What you will learn:
During this session, we will explore the impact and considerations for safe and secure operations including the need to:
• Evaluate the security needs of aging equipment and its impact on safety, uptime and time-to-market;
• Recognize the value of neutralizing threats in real time and sustained situational awareness to inform decision making;
• Understand how a security framework can provide for securing industrial control systems (ICS) and SCADA systems in any environment.
