Re-thinking ICS Security By Upgrading IT/OT Controls, Frameworks And Threat Monitoring For The Digital Age

27/07/2020 | Free-to-Attend | 8:50 am - 12:10 pm AEST

As Covid-19 brings about scaled remote and digital ways of working, SCADA, OT and Control System teams can no longer rely on existing practices and capabilities to be effective against the new threats and risks that permeate into their environments.

The global industrial control systems security market is predicted to grow by 6.8% by 2023, accelerated by the security risks posed by COVID-19. These risks include growing incidences of security breach in ICS, investment in industry 4.0, government initiatives that favour operations, security and critical infrastructure maintenance and the convergence of OT/IT environments.

With this in mind, IQPC proudly presents to you ANZ’s first digital “ICS Security Through Covid-19 and Beyond” Summit on the 27th July 2020. This event is dedicated to leaders charged with headlining their organisations ICS Security initiatives during COVID-19 and, addresses how organisations are ensuring their industrial control systems are protecting operations and infrastructure from breaches, assists with the convergence of OT/IT environments and enables integration with industry 4.0 technology.
