April 5, 2017 at 1pm ET/10am PT


Cybersecurity has never been more important to the world’s leading manufacturers. Legacy industrial control systems — many of which were never built with security in mind — remain especially prone to cyber threats. And as these systems are converged and integrated with enterprise IT technologies, new vectors of attack open up.

In this webcast, a panel of experienced security experts focused on the manufacturing industry will identify critical security challenges manufacturers face while IT and OT environments converge.  We’ll discuss approaches for implementing a forward-thinking, proactive security strategy that allows you to take advantage of IoT opportunities while decreasing the attack surface and the chances for business disruption.

You’ll learn:

  • What IT/OT convergence in manufacturing looks like from a security lens
  • Critical areas of security focus for manufacturers
  • How a strategic infrastructure segmentation approach will allow you to reduce risk, simplify your audit profile, protect data, and achieve a defensible position for board-level requirements
  • How to enable simplified management, lowered complexity, and increased consistency, resulting in optimized operational costs
