Securing Industrial Environments with OT Endpoint Management
with Automation.com and Verve
Securing Operational Technology (OT) systems is an increasingly important, but challenging task. IT cyber security has had the advantage of building on a strong foundation of IT Systems Management processes and technologies over the past decade or more - and even those assets are often left insecure.
Unfortunately for OT environments, processes such as accurate and updated hardware and software inventory, patch management, configuration hardening, user and account management, etc. do not exist. This is due to a range of factors from skill-gaps to sensitive OT environments. To truly secure these systems, simply monitoring and detecting threats is not enough. We must conduct the other critical elements of security such as identification, protection and response. This requires overcoming these endpoint management challenges. The good news is there is a way.
Join us on May 28th to learn a practical approach to applying many of the same best practice IT principles into the OT environment and hear a real-world example of an operator bringing the appropriate skills, technology and processes to enable similar endpoint risk management to OT as to IT. During this webinar, you will learn how to:
- Generate 360-degree risk assessments on OT assets
- Prioritize critical risks and how to remediate them
- Patch safely and effectively; manage user and account access
- Build the right organization model to achieve efficiency
- OT expertise to ensure safe operations
