Pulse check: How’s your year going? The challenges keep on coming, am I right?

The security industry is no stranger to change. OT security leaders know—maybe better than anyone—just how challenging it can be to secure an organization at the speed of risk. With recent breaches hitting supply chains globally, industries are asking the right questions: “What’s holding us back from getting further, faster?” and, “Who’s doing it right, and how are they getting it done?”

Let’s talk about it.

Accenture is convening executives and technical leaders from across the globe, spanning diverse industries, to discuss the state of OT cybersecurity. Everything’s on the table, from IT/OT integration across the SOC to the cloud and on to the plant floor and the boardroom.

Hear how your peers are harnessing emerging OT cybersecurity trends to advance their programs, achieve their business objectives and accelerate security agendas.

<<< End >>>

Accenture’s inaugural OT summit, Operation: Next, will debut on March 24, 2021 from 9:00am – 1:00pm ET.

I’m looking forward to hearing from Guy Delp, Vice President, Global Information Security at Pfizer, and ICS security luminary Dale Peterson as they deliver the opening and closing keynotes respectively. With tracks that blanket technical topics and C-level executive concerns, the summit will include practical advice and lessons learned on:

  • Driving OT security program and governance structure from design to rollout.
  • Evolving IT/OT security architecture and integration.
  • Striking the right balance in IT/OT risk management.

In the not-to-be missed department, the closing keynote will include Peterson joining in a no-holds-barred panel discussion with Rob Lee (Dragos), Zach Tudor (Idaho National Lab) and Jason Holcomb (Accenture).

The three-hour program will highlight real-world case studies told from the viewpoint of those who’ve been in your shoes. Hear how your peers are harnessing emerging OT cybersecurity trends to advance their programs, achieve their business objectives and accelerate security agendas. The insights will be yours to keep.

As the summit host, I hope you will join me.

Register here today.
