Targeted ransomware has emerged as the pervasive threat to critical industrial infrastructures and OT networks. All production downtime reported in 2020 was due to targeted ransomware, as was the 2021 Colonial pipelines breach - the biggest OT cyber impact in US history.
In this webinar, Andrew Ginter of Waterfall Security Solutions walks us through modern ransomware and other threats to OT systems. He reviews the difficulties and costs of applying conventional cybersecurity mitigations to OT networks. Andrew finishes with a deep dive into powerful new approaches to OT risk prevention - approaches that both simplify OT security mitigations, and reduce their costs.
During this webinar, participants will also learn:
- The capabilities and impacts of modern targeted ransomware
- Why conventional cybersecurity is so difficult to apply to OT systems
- Secure Operations Technology (SEC-OT) and other approaches to risk prevention
- How risk prevention dramatically increases the effectiveness and reduces the cost of OT cybersecurity programs
