As business needs for interconnectivity between information technology and operational technology networks becoming more prevalent, cybersecurity is now a critical aspect of how that interconnectivity is met. With cyber attacks on information technology systems around the globe becoming more frequent, securing operational technology networks from these attacks is becoming a key component to network stability and reliability.

Understanding what the differences are between implementing cybersecurity measures in an IT and OT network and introduces software-defined networking (SDN) technology and how it can be used to build a robust and secure OT network. This session will cover:

  • Implementing secure network design strategies
  • Understanding SDN
  • Building a robust and secure implemented into an OT network to meet cybersecurity, performance and management needs
