Protecting essential services and control systems networks is imperative and, in many cases, neglected in relation to embedded systems in modern architecture.
The proliferation and advancement of integrated operational technologies and the Internet of Things have enhanced operational efficiency, but paradoxically has increased the attack surface exponentially across critical infrastructure. The impact of supply chain vulnerabilities and insecure IT systems have increased the threat to security and safety across the industrial enterprise, and C-level executives, who are well aware of the reputational damage of the cyber attack, are starting to listen.
Now in its 7th year, the Cyber Senate Industrial Control Cyber Security USA conference will take place on March 29, 30, and 31 in Celebration Florida. This three-day executive forum will include workshop training on day one with Fortinet, followed by extensive high-level presentations, panel sessions, and exhibitor networking for days two and three.
Leveraging key insight from the Cyber Senate portfolio of vertical conferences from 2016 to 2019, 2020’s event will be dominated by the best global cybersecurity subject matter experts in the ICS domain, including executive leadership from utilities, water, oil and gas, aviation, rail, chemical, nuclear, and maritime industries.
This conference will address the escalating cyber risk and resilience challenges associated with the adoption and convergence of operational technologies in enterprise facing architecture and the gap between IT, OT, and engineering, and how to better facilitate understanding of the vulnerability of sensors and devices. Practitioners will gain further insight into how to best respond to evolving cyberthreats, the importance of effective risk management throughout the supply chain, innovations in detection and mitigation, configuration management, and how can we incorporate resilience into critical control system components and business processes. This conference will bring together key discussions in IT, OT security, and engineering for an in-depth, focused information-sharing platform not to be missed.
