How IT and OT Are Teaming up to Reduce Industrial Cybersecurity Risks

While Industrie 4.0 is revolutionizing the way industrial organizations operate and compete, it’s also forcing organizations to address new cybersecurity threats to industrial networks.  Many CISOs and OT executives are finding themselves responsible for the cybersecurity of OT networks that are beyond their individual areas of expertise.  A growing number of these historically siloed organizations are finding that a converged approach is the most efficient and effective way to shore up industrial cybersecurity risks.  In this session, BNL.Engie and Nozomi Networks will team up to discuss ways that new technologies and converged IT/OT cybersecurity strategies are coming together to deliver a new and improved era of industrial cybersecurity.
