You are invited to join experts from Palo Alto Networks and DXC Technology at the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) in Coventry on */eventstartdate/* to learn more about best practice approaches to the safe unification of ICS/OT and IT systems and how to ensure critical operational infrastructure is properly secured against known and unknown threats both now, and in the future. Who should attend Operational Technology / ICS / SCADA Practitioners and Security Operations IOT and IIOT Practitioners Network Security, Information Security & SOC Teams Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) stakeholders Why attend In modern asset-based businesses, data is key to making smart, real-time decisions and creating a foundation for the innovative new products and services that will allow you to greater serve customers in the future. As a result, Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) systems must be converged to truly enable data driven businesses. This direction of travel directly challenges the traditional ‘Air Gap’ security models that have existed between IT and OT systems for decades. Not only does this approach hinder the required flow of telemetry data between sensory networks, data lakes and machine learning environments, but as a trusted construct it also introduces new and unknown risks from insider threat.
