Accelerate 18 - Securing IoT and OT systems in an evolving world: Similarities and difference

Fortinet

The Internet of Things (IoT) represents a new genus of the Internet, many refer to it as the digital disruption or the digital economy - but essentially delivering better ways to serve end users and generate new growth.  Gartner projects there will be 20.4 Billion installed base of IoT units in 2020.  Many of these will be headless, with little or no security installed on them and connecting to data centers and cloud.  This exponential increase in IoT devices and their accessibility to the network will have considerable impact both on the connectivity needs as well as the security aspect of it.  Indeed, cybersecurity is the top technology related challenge for IoT deployments.  Similar to IoT, OT systems have their own challenges.  Historically, these systems have been air-gapped and immune to remote hacking.  However, the operational benefits of network connectivity have brought these systems to the Internet.  Now, OT systems are increasingly becoming targets for malicious attacks due to their critical importance to our infrastructure and way of life.   Join us to learn about the emerging IoT/OT landscape and how you can start securing the IoT and OT systems in your networks.
