Automation 2022: Cybersecurity & Connectivity
Cybersecurity & Connectivity Securing today’s industrial control system (ICS) networks is no small thing. Operational technology (OT) systems are very different from the automation networks of 10 years ago, and while the many information technology (IT) systems and IIoT devices bring huge benefits to critical infrastructure and industrial organizations, they also bring new cybersecurity challenges.
ICSs have been of incredible value to manufacturing industries. The ability to control the production and manufacturing process of goods and services has been a major milestone in our modernized world. However, everything comes with risks. Cybersecurity attacks, vulnerability exploits, and digital espionage have crossed the boundaries into what were once considered off-limit targets.
This edition of Cybersecurity & Connectivity shows you strategies and solutions for securing OT/ICS infrastructure. Discover how to use deep packet inspection (DPI) to start securing OT systems, and even how using artificial intelligence (AI) to uncover ICS vulnerabilities can reduce risk. Learn the security benefits of standardizing operational networks, the benefits of controlling quality in the cloud and at the edge, as well as how to implement planned-security technology.
