Webinar: The Top 5 Myths of ICS Cybersecurity – Debunked!

What are the top five ICS cybersecurity myths, and are they hindering you from securing your industrial process control environment?

Industrial control systems (ICS) are certainly under assault. There are numerous public examples – the most recent being the WannaCry ransomware attack that successfully penetrated process control networks and, in limited cases, slowed or shut down production. This attack was a wake-up call for industrial process industries as WannaCry exposed the immaturity of and misconceptions surrounding ICS cybersecurity strategies today.

Join us for a live webinar on June 14 at 1PM ET to hear from a panel of industry experts that will:

- Identify popular ICS cybersecurity myths that leave the systems that matter most in a facility vulnerable.

- Examine each myth and provide specific kill chain examples (including WannaCry) that expose these myths for what they are.

- Provide best practices that companies can adopt to help secure their ICS environments from both outsider and insider threats.
