‘Why don’t they get it?’ Understanding the View from the Other Side of the Firewall
London UK, Monday September 28th Half Day Pre Conference Workshop, 9am-13:10 with Tim Harwood, Managing Director, HS and T Consultancy and Christina Kubecka, Former Group Leader, Aramco Overseas, Consultant and Founder HypaSec ^infinity.
Traditionally, IT and OT teams have been separated by the firewall. However, nowadays with everyone and everything connected to the internet such as the Internet of Things (IoT) in fourth generation SCADA computing and the greater use of COTS in ICS.
Security posture, risks, incident response and recovery are vastly different between the two similar technologies and teams.
It is only when teams come together and begin talking the same language will we be better prepared to face the external and internal threats as well as understanding the full extent of our vulnerabilities. Through discussions and interactive breakout sessions, the workshop will examine common mistakes and misconceptions made by teams when considering the ‘other side’ and help attendees to leave with a better understanding of how to take this back to their parent companies and put together a strategy for common understanding useable by all.
