In today’s interconnected world, the security of operational technology (OT) infrastructure is paramount. As we rely increasingly on digital systems to manage critical infrastructure, the interconnectedness of OT & IT networks has never been more pronounced. This talk delves into the current state and challenges of securing critical infrastructure explores strategies to address these challenges effectively and draws insights from Frost & Sullivan’s research on critical infrastructure industries.

Takeaways from the talk:

  • Understanding the Current State & Challenges in OT Security: We’ll examine the risks facing critical infrastructure sectors, the factors behind the increased risk exposure, and understand the threats from a security & economic perspective.
  • Addressing the Challenges: We’ll explore strategies to fortify defenses and mitigate potential threats. What are the current gaps & the unmet needs and how is the industry responding to those?
  • Insights from Frost & Sullivan Research: Leveraging data and insights from Frost & Sullivan’s research, we’ll gain valuable perspectives on emerging trends, market dynamics, and innovations shaping the future of OT cybersecurity in critical infrastructure industries.
  • The Road Ahead: Looking to the future, we’ll explore emerging technologies, regulatory developments, and strategic imperatives that will shape the next frontier of OT cybersecurity. From AI-powered threat detection to resilient infrastructure design, we’ll highlight key trends and considerations for safeguarding critical assets in an increasingly digital world.

By the end of this talk, attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and opportunities in securing critical infrastructure, along with actionable insights to strengthen their cybersecurity posture and navigate the next frontier of OT cybersecurity with confidence.
