With many thanks to our Gold Strategic Alliance Partner, Palo Alto Networks, for helping us bring you this timely educational presentation, (CS)2AI is pleased to invite you to join us to discuss approaches to a long-standing challenge in control system cyber security – designing and implementing secure remote access solutions for ICS/OT environments.


Establishing secure remote access into industrial control systems, operational technology and IT environments has long been an ongoing effort for many of us, and the current shelter-in-place and work-from-home orders under which much of the world is now functioning has greatly ratcheted up the demand to make this happen yesterday. 


Part of the security equation involves how operational assets are accessed and managed and how the cyber security posture of IT and OT can be impacted if the management of remote access is not understood by business or is conducted poorly.

Companies of all sizes are struggling to adapt to telework demands, facing challenges of limited bandwidth, un- or insufficiently-vetted devices, workforce training needs and, in many settings, regulatory compliance requirements. 


Join the discussion in this Palo Alto Networks-sponsored event with our panel of subject matter experts and learn how they and their clients have addressed these demands in the past for example Zero Trust Security principles for OT and IT, when time was less pressured, and what they recommend for current conditions.
