Jo Dalton will be presenting: Supply chain tales and fails. Can there be a happy ending?
As Operational Technology (OT) becomes smarter and increasingly connected, there are more risks that we need to understand and mitigate against. There is plenty we can learn from the list of ‘facepalm’ security moments in IoT to prevent similar issues in OT.
Maritime, Rail and Aviation have all struggled with the risks created by connectivity. The pandemic has only served to highlight these, and place more pressure on Manufacturing and Food Supply as well.
We’re seeing vulnerable PLC cloud management platforms, hard coded credentials in 3rd party devices, and ongoing confusion over responsibility. We need to get ahead of the curve and embed security before it becomes a problem.
We’ll describe the current state of security in OT and how it seems to not be evolving and improving at the same rate as other grouped technologies. We’ll show you examples of what we see going wrong and detail the root causes, so you can understand and deal with them.
