The protection of OT/IoT networks is topical, and integration with the IP network requires careful consideration, so it is with pleasure that we organize this conference with our “CISO Advisor” to discuss it.
We will begin with an executive presentation to explain the challenges based on the reality of a CISO and a Director of Cybersecurity. Next, we will present the best practices for building a secure OT/IoT network.
10h-11h: The security of an OT/IoT network from the perspective of a CISO and a Director of Cybersecurity
11h-12h: Presentation of best practices for implementing a secure OT/IoT architecture
At this conference, we will highlight the following:
- The main differences between IT and OT/IoT systems, most of which have a direct impact on the governance model needed to support an effective OT/IoT security program.
- In the second part of the presentation, he will explain how a “zero-trust architecture” can be used to secure the interface between the IT network and the OT/IoT network and propose an approach to lay the foundation for a sustainable OT/IoT security program.
- In closing, Gaétan will be accompanied by our infrastructure specialists to demonstrate Cisco’s recommended best practices for securing an OT/IoT environment.
