The Role of Cybersecurity in Safety for the Manufacturing Industry

The Role of Cybersecurity in Safety for the Manufacturing Industry



23RD JUNE 2021 | 12PM (ET)

About the Webinar

Increasingly sophisticated and hostile adversaries, including ransomware criminal organizations and nation states, are launching cyberattacks today against operations targets to extort money and to perform sabotage of manufacturing facilities. Effectively countering these pervasive threats is especially important in chemical, pharmaceutical and food and beverage manufacturing organizations because of safety concerns. For chemical manufacturing, safety of personal is a must, while pharmaceutical and food manufacturers require strict measures to ensure consumer safety.

In this webinar, leaders in OT cybersecurity provide an in-depth discussion of specific needs for these industries. We will cover:

• The threat landscape for industrial / OT automation and its requirements for safety
• Differences in cybersecurity requirements between IT and OT systems
• Recommendations to protect MES systems, STS, ICS/OT networks, and cloud connectivity
• Perimeter protection for networks with safety considerations
