Agenda

12:00 – 12:35 PM
IT/OT Convergence, A Digitalization & Cybersecurity Ripple Effects
Thanks to the Internet of Things and its emerging landscape, it facilitates IT/OT network convergence and creating a paradigm shift in digitalization and automation. Thus Cybersecurity becomes the mission-critical for businesses to sustain a secure network. This session will focus on the critical elements of IT/OT/IoT network security and privacy and the cybersecurity initiatives to improve the security posture of the business.

Key Learnings:


Speakers: Virgil Renz, Practice Leader – IoT & OT Security Services, Kudelski Security; Mangaya Sivagnanam, Principal Cybersecurity Architect, Trane Technologies


12:40 – 1:15 PM
Landscape IoT Risk Threats across the National Critical Functions (NCFs)
Operational Technology (OT) is the cyber physical interface that allows computers, and the networks that connect them, to monitor and control devices that run our critical infrastructure. Information Technology (IT) is the customer relationship systems, often facing the internet, that allow us to do business. Over the past several years these systems and services have been attacked and compromised creating not only direct effects of loss of service, but second and third order effects undermining our way of life. This presentation sets up the operational context to discuss these threats from criminals and nation states, and understand how we can exercise to be more resilient as organizations and communities. 

Key Learnings:


Speakers: Tom Muehleisen, Dir. of Cyber Operations, Norwich University Applied Research Institutes (NUARI); Phil Susmann, Pres., Norwich University Applied Research Institutes (NUARI)

1:20 – 1:55 PM
Securing IoT and OT Devices in Manufacturing – Your State of Security
Manufacturing systems and devices traditionally have been challenging to defend. Not anymore.

Key Learnings:


Speaker: Eric Nelson, Systems Engineer, Ordr

2:00 – 2:35 PM
Cyber Security Supply Chain of Events

Globalization of markets, trade, resources, manufacturing and distribution create key supply chain cyber security risk management challenges. Supply chain resiliency and threat mitigation is only as strong as the weakest member. Cyber threats will make use of this by identifying the organization with the weakest cyber security defenses. Learn to apply best practices and security frameworks to maintain comprehensive supply chain continuity.

Key Learnings:


Speaker: Paul Veeneman, VP – Operations, MBA Engineering

2:50 – 3:25 PM
Data Security

Speakers: Michael Larson, Cyber Security Consultant, Ecolab; Matt Rogers, Practice Director, Universal Network Solutions (UNS)

3:30 – 4:00 PM
Best Practices (Bootstrap)

Speaker: Srini Mirmira, President, Blue Ridge Networks
