ARC conf 2017 2

LSEC will host 2 workshops at the Conference.....
and you are invited!

ICS Workshop I: Management of cyber security risks
Plant personnel and critical infrastructure stakeholders should be prepared to deal with an increasing number of cyber security incidents and unprecedented obstacles to establish and maintain cyber situational awareness, regardless of their cyber security or IT expertise. They should be taking the right actions at the right time and demonstrating improvements in the cyber security posture over time. This workshop facilitated by ARC and LSEC explores methods and solutions to proactively prevent, monitor and manage industrial cyber security risks and incidents. The workshop supports owner-operators in defining steps towards mastery of cyber risk management. It consolidates corporate and site-wide cyber threats and human factors into a single view for visibility and decision-making.

ICS Workshop II: Implementation of cyber security operations
The overall objective of implementing Industrial cyber security measures in plants and critical infrastructure sectors is to defend the availability, reliability, continuity and safety of plant operations, people, environment and the overall business including prevention against industrial espionage. In this workshop by LSEC and ARC participants discuss with experts how to quickly uncover potential breaches and harden existing infrastructures. It will provide guidance on how to improve assessment and management of (un)known vulnerabilities in brownfield operations, considering impact from cyber-physical systems and connected Industrial IoT. The workshop will discuss best practices including: handling identified security breaches and incidents, mastering equipment suppliers, improving basic network security services and unauthorized access, and further enhancing securing plant perimeters.

About The Conference:

Industrial companies are revisiting their own business processes and technology approaches as competitors and partners start to employ 'digitalized' business processes and exploit the increasing convergence between operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) on the plant floor. Trusted technology vendors are moving from Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) concepts to real IIoT products, solutions, and services.

• How will disruptive technologies change existing products and plants?
• Is digitalization a threat to cybersecurity and, if so, how can the risk be mitigated?
• How do Big Data and predictive and prescriptive analytics enable operational change?
• How do connected products create opportunities in aftermarket services?
• What software capabilities are needed to achieve transformational change?
• What steps can organizations take to foster innovative thinking?
