Industrial Control Systems:

Understanding the Access Risks and Security

Challenges by KuppingerCole Analysts

For decades, Industrial Control Systems have evolved completely separately from traditional IT, with their own business drivers, requirements and regulations and proprietary hardware designs and network protocols. Needless to say, security from cyberattacks was never a priority for operational technology units responsible for managing those systems: after all, they weren’t even connected to office networks.

This webinar will analyze the risks of unprotected industrial networks, the impact of IIoT applications on control systems and how organizations can successfully manage these risks through effective identity and access management.

The topics we are going to discuss include:

• Why insecure industrial control systems are a common problem across many sectors including financial services.
• Who is responsible for ICS security in your organization and why this is not always properly defined.
• What types of cyberthreats are targeting ICS or using them as a gateway into IT infrastructures.
• How identity and access management applications are key to managing ICS security.



This webinar is produced by KuppingerCole in collaboration with WALLIX.
