OT Cyber Security Risk - Taking it Down

September 15, 2021
1:00PM - 5:00PM EST


About the Symposium

Cybersecurity mitigations aren't always the most important part of OT cyber risk programs, but are always the most expensive. Join (CS)²AI and industry leaders for 12 rounds of discussion and debate on how to reduce OT cyber risks most effectively.


James McGlone of Kenexis, co-author of Security PHA Review will look at physical mitigations for cyber safety risks.

Sarah Freeman and Andrew Bochman of Idaho National Labs and co-authors of Countering Cyber Sabotage will look at risk assessments and un-hackable mitigations.

Andrew Ginter, author of Secure Operations Technology will look at controlling offline and online cyber attack information flows.

We will round out these deep dives with insights and analysis from each of our esteemed speakers. In addition, our published authors will offer tips on the process of writing.


For an extra bit of entertainment (as (CS)²AI is now known for) we have Golden Gloves champion, four time WBC Canadian Super Middleweight champion and Team Canada member, Rob Couzens attending who will discuss the universal applicability of the word "fight" regardless of your opponent! 


Our wrap up will include a panel of industry leaders who will offer their analysis of how to use what's been presented: Dr. William (Art) Conklin of the University of Houston, Bryan Owen of OSIsoft/Aveva and Mark Fabro of Lofty Perch.


Join us to explore a new perspective on risk management strategies unique to the OT / industrial space.
