October 13th – 14th, 2020 | Virtual
The ManuSec USA Online Summit is set in a world dominated by a focus on the Fourth Industrial Revolution, where manufacturers have increasingly adopted robotics, artificial intelligence, machine learning and advanced analytics. As automation becomes more integrated in society, it is paramount to address the cybersecurity risks that stem from the Industrial Internet of Things, cyber-physical security and even the data integrity of underlying systems. ManuSec USA brings together 100’s of manufacturing security leaders online for 2-days of in-depth knowledge exchange, strategy planning and insight
Presentation by John Livingston:
Why an OT Systems Management Platform Approach is Critical for Converged IT-OT Security
OT security is based on the same foundations as IT security, but out of a fear of disrupting operations, security practitioners have relied on passive detection and/or network protections as their lines of defense. In a world of accelerating ransomware, increased vulnerabilities, and more state actors trying to disrupt operations and/or steal IP, this just isn’t good enough anymore. In this session, Verve will describe the platform approach it has used with manufacturing and critical infrastructure for over a decade.
This approach offers an OT-safe, efficient, and integrated way of conducting OT systems management:
- Identifying 360-degree risk
- Making trade-offs of different protection strategies
- Executing on those from the same platform.
