Industrial cybersecurity and its challenges
In a world where critical infrastructures are increasingly dependent on digital technologies, the cybersecurity of operational technologies (OT) and industrial control systems (ICS) is a crucial issue.
My presentation will cover the following points:
- Definition and importance of industrial cybersecurity: What is industrial cybersecurity, and how does it differ from traditional IT cybersecurity? Why has it become a priority for organizations?
- Panorama of past TO attacks: An overview of major attacks on critical infrastructures and their devastating impact (Stuxnet, Sandworm, etc.).
- Industrial cybersecurity issues and challenges: Increased risks for the security of people, goods and essential services. Specific challenges linked to the diversity of systems, the complexity of environments and the lack of specialized skills.
- Solutions and best practices to protect TO/SCI: Implementation of a robust and proactive cybersecurity strategy adapted to the specific needs of organizations. Adoption of best practices and security technologies dedicated to TO/SCI environments. Importance of training and raising staff awareness of cyber risks.
Together, we will demystify industrial cybersecurity and understand its challenges.
