Description

In the past decade, energy infrastructure has increasingly become a prime target for cyberattack, as the convergence of digitalization and the industry’s shift towards more distributed, interconnected business models transform the energy ecosystem.

This convergence is creating a mega-trend that makes it easier for malicious actors to exploit vulnerabilities and makes it harder for defenders to stop attacks. Security and stability across the energy sector increasingly depend on detecting, understanding, and responding to cyberattacks before they cause damage. 

In this webinar, you’ll learn about the challenges that energy and utility technology and security professionals face and solutions that can better secure and protect your energy assets and the grid.

Webinar Highlights

  • The country’s energy system is only as strong as its weakest link. 
    You’ll learn why your utility must prioritize cybersecurity as a core business principle to protect your assets and quickly fend off attacks that could cause devastating physical and financial losses. 
  • With the digitalization of the energy landscape, companies’ blind spots are increasing. 
    You’ll hear how the grid is more distributed and interconnected than ever before, leaving you to defend your assets in the dark while attackers shine a light on your entire OT and/or IT system to exploit new vulnerabilities.   
  • Companies and operators of all sizes must access resources and expertise to defend their systems. 
    You’ll discover new managed detection and response solutions to help you efficiently and effectively protect your OT and IT systems from cyberattacks.
