with Raef Meeuwisse, Cybersecurity Expert and Author; Christopher Hills, Chief Security Strategist, BeyondTrust; Marty Edwards, Deputy CTO – OT/IoT, at Tenable; Larry Alls, Solutions Director, OT Security Practice, Cybersecurity & GRC Services at HCLTech
The operational technology (OT) landscape today is changing fast. OT organizations are embracing digital transformation with large-scale cloud adoption and technological integrations to take advantage of new operational efficiencies through IT-OT convergence, distributed workforce and remote access.
This interconnected OT landscape, in turn, has generated a slew of security risks. Cyberattacks targeting OT networks are sky-high. 93% of OT organizations experienced an intrusion incident in the past year, with 61% of intrusions impacting the OT environment.
This live webinar brought cybersecurity expert and author Raef Meeuwisse moderating a panel of cybersecurity professionals from BeyondTrust, Tenable, and HCLTech to discuss new and intelligent ways to better estimate, understand and manage cyber exposure and reduce risk in OT environments.
Topics the panel will covered:
You will experience an outcome focused session that addresses some of the very problems you may be experiencing as an OT organization. There was a live 15-min Q&A when our experts answered questions from the audience.
