Jason Hunt, Co-Portfolio Leader, Senior Manager – Cyber Risk Services, Deloitte
Cybersecurity risks and the potential impact to manufacturing capabilities is critical given recent events that have been reported by companies. There also continues to be an upward trend globally in the number of attacks targeted specifically at control systems.
During this session, we will discuss strategies that can be used to establish a reliable and effective security program for process control environments. These strategies include adoption of consistent governance frameworks, improving visibility and monitoring, improving access control, and enhancing response/recovery capabilities that can be leveraged if an event occurs.
