Advancing OT Brownfield Cybersecurity – Presented by Andrea Carcano, Nozomi Networks

Advancing OT Brownfield Cybersecurity – Presented by Andrea Carcano, Nozomi Networks, at the Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference, which will take place on November 8, 2017, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Industrial Control Systems (ICS) have become increasingly connected to enterprise IoT directives and placed under IT oversight. While industrial applications and sensors have historically remained secure due to their relative isolation from enterprise IT, this is no longer the case. Cybersecurity stakeholders are realizing that the conventional IT security practices of network segmentation, firewalls and SIEMs must be supplemented with technologies that bring real-time visibility and threat analysis to OT segments. In this session, we will cover how certain non-intrusive ICS technologies are bringing scalable visibility into distributed ICS networks and bridging the integration gap that exists between the IT / OT divide. We will examine real uses-case scenarios that illustrate the tactical implementation and benefit of cutting-edge ICS cybersecurity technologies within existing brownfield ICS / IT applications.

The Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference will take place on Nov 08, 2017, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Sensors and sensor networks are becoming more and more essential for industrial or business use. Real time information from ‘the real world’ to support decision making and control of vital processes will be an integral part of business processes.

The 8th edition of the international Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference will focus on the following areas:

  • Industrial Internet / Smart industry / Industry 4.0 (Industrial process control)
  • Smart infrastructure (from buildings to bridges)
