Industrial control systems and process control networks are critical components of your business – as important, if not more so than your core databases and financial systems. In the past organizations believed they were protected by not being connected – this is no longer the case. Digitization has reached everywhere – even into the plant. Yet many organizations do not even know what are on these networks, how vulnerabile they are and what could happen if they are remotely accessed.
This presentation outlines the technical and organizational issues associated with effective cyber-risk management for plants in the digital age and outlines methods in which we can address the cyber-risk knowledge gap.
