Summary:

This web conference will look at the changing landscape and approach to Operational Technology Security. In a time when an organization's operational security is at greater risk, executives in capital intensive industries are putting a higher priority on security. Going forward we will see companies moving away from outdated legacy security systems and processes and moving towards a combined effort of IT and OT security. Traditionally, companies have treated Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) as two separate autonomous parts of an organization. Today, IT/OT convergence is changing that traditional approach and proving that IT and OT security is now best managed together as one. The future of IT and OT organizations need an approach that protects the data in IT and prevents the unauthorized access of OT. Join Kevin Prouty, VP Research for Energy Insights and John Villali, Research Director, Energy Insights in this webcast, Operational Technology Security in Capital Intensive Industries, as we take a look at the changing role of IT and OT in the realm of security and the best approaches in facing today's challenges around IT/OT security.
