Fortress or Free-for-All? Securing Critical Infrastructure in the Age of Exploding OT & IoE


Securing Critical Infrastructure: Challenges and Solutions - OT

The lines are blurring. Operational technology (OT) is bleeding into the IT landscape, creating an explosion of internet-connected devices (IoE) within our critical infrastructure. This interconnectedness fuels efficiency, but it also opens a pandora's box of security vulnerabilities. Are we building an impregnable fortress or a hacker's playground?

Join this dynamic panel discussion as we dissect the cutting-edge threats and vulnerabilities plaguing critical infrastructure in sectors like energy, transportation, and healthcare. We'll delve into the evolving attacker landscape, exploring the motivations and tactics of cybercriminals and nation-state actors.

But fear not! This session isn't just about doom and gloom. We'll explore the latest advancements in OT and IoE security, including:

  • The evolving geo-political crisis and what that means to the security of NATO member states critical infrastructure
  • AI-powered solutions for predictive maintenance, anomaly detection, and proactive threat mitigation
  • Zero-trust architectures and micro-segmentation strategies to minimize attack surfaces
  • Quantum-resistant cryptography to safeguard against future threats
  • The role of blockchain in ensuring data integrity and provenance

This is your chance to engage with leading security experts and gain actionable insights to:

  • Identify and prioritize critical infrastructure vulnerabilities
  • Develop a comprehensive OT and IoE security strategy
  • Leverage cutting-edge solutions to build cyber resilience
  • Collaborate with industry peers to create a unified defense

Leave this session equipped with the knowledge and tools to fortify your critical infrastructure and ensure its continued safe and reliable operation in the face of ever-evolving threats.

Audience Takeaways:

By attending this session, you will gain:

  • A clear understanding of the evolving security landscape for critical infrastructure, with a focus on OT and IoE integration.
  • Invaluable insights into the latest threats and attacker tactics targeting critical infrastructure.
  • Actionable strategies for building robust cyber defenses, leveraging cutting-edge solutions like AI and blockchain.
  • Practical knowledge on how to prioritize vulnerabilities, develop a comprehensive security plan, and collaborate with stakeholders to ensure a collective defense.
  • A broader perspective on the future of OT and IoE security, including emerging trends and technologies.
