1778641 - How to Prepare and Secure Critical Infrastructure for the Future of Digitalisation

Oct 18, 2021 11:00am ‐ Oct 18, 2021 12:00pm

Credits: None available.


Digitalization is here to stay and critical infrastructures are not an exception. Even before the pandemic, we have seen an increased number of connected OT systems to the internet. It leads to no separation of IT and OT networks due to the increase in data, connectivity, complexity and costs. What makes the protection for the digitalization of critical infrastructure difficult is the convergence between IT and OT. Threats that normally impact IT can move between cyber and physical environments. Therefore, cybersecurity is a key factor for the success of digitalized critical infrastructure. The presentation will share key principles and guidelines the presenter developed and refined over the years working in several industries. The application of the principles has helped prepare and secure critical infrastructure for the future of digitalisation.

Learning Objectives:
  • Better assess environments for the future of critical infrastructure digitalization.
  • Determine key initiatives for long-term protection.
  • Identify actions to better information their cybersecurity programs.

Good job of using parts of existing frameworks to communicate with senior management.
