Recent cybersecurity reports indicate that the oil and gas industry is increasingly vulnerable to threats originating from IT networks. Although ransomware and cyber-attacks may not specifically target OT systems and operations, without strong network separation between OT and IT, threats that originate from IT can easily spread to OT causing operations to shut down. However, complete network isolation isn’t the answer. Through the proper use of network segmentation, data and OT systems can be utilized and monitored remotely, while mitigating advanced persistent security risks.

Join us as we discuss:

  • Oil and gas cybersecurity challenges
  • Best practices for preventing ransomware in OT using network segmentation
  • DHS recommendations for secure data mobility
  • Secure historian replication from OT to IT using OPC
  • Use cases for defending oil and gas high threat environments
