If there’s one positive thing that comes out of the Coronavirus pandemic, it’s that we are starting to appreciate the value of virtual and online events. ARC is happy to participate in an informative upcoming virtual cybersecurity roundtable with Palo Alto Networks on April 8, from 8-9 AM Pacific time. You can register for the webinar here.
Securing Digital Transformation
The topic of this roundtable discussion is “Strategies for Secure Digital Transformation Of ICS/OT.” Industrial control systems and processes have their own requirements for security, reliability, and availability. This panel of cross-sector OT security experts will discuss how to most effectively secure industrial control systems in the midst of the current wave of digital transformation and the adoption of IoT technologies. Other topics include IT/OT convergence and its impact on cybersecurity, plant floor modernization, new threat vectors, and the impact of other emerging technologies like 5G. Attendees of this webinar will learn more about real-world security strategies that organizations are taking to address the new threat landscape from a People, Process and Technology standpoint.
ARC also recently did a white paper for Palo Alto Networks that discussed the challenges industrial asset owner-operators will face as they embark on their OT digital transformation initiatives. More importantly it makes recommendations for realizing the more integrated, flexible, and efficient security operations needed to protect future highly converged and modernized IT-OT environments using cloud, mobile, IoT, and AI technologies.

- Mark Johnson-Barbier, Senior Principal Analyst, Salt River Project
- Apurva Mohan, Global IoT Security Manager, Schlumberger
- Frances O'Connor, IT/OT Security & IT Emerging Technologies Leader, Owens Corning
