Step into next

The last year has highlighted just how vulnerable our critical infrastructure is to cyber threats. Our improvement journeys are all different, but our end goal is the same – achieve operational integrity and cyber resilience.

On March 23, 2022, we were honored to host 50 speakers—senior leaders and cybersecurity OT experts from across the globe—to share their experiences and insights. We are pleased to announce that the full agenda is now available on-demand.

Three tracks to address:

  • designing resilient architecture
  • building an OT security program from the top down
  • implementing effective end-to-end OT SecOps

Five sessions per track to cover:

  • fundamentals & structure
  • innovation & technology
  • project execution
  • real-world implementations
  • investment & risk
Watch summit sessions
