Webinar Key Takeaways

  • Cyber is guilty until proven innocent
  • Applying specific IT solutions laterally to ICS networks will not result in a defensible organization
  • Attackers have already reached IT/OT convergence
  • When considering improvements to ICS security, everything can be within scope
  • Successful incident response requires a thought-out approach and planning (keeping in mind, not all challenges are technical)
  • Consistent monitoring for adversary behavior across ingress, egress, and lateral traffic remains the single best strategic and tactical action organizations can take
