Indegy and McAfee to Discuss Threats to Critical Infrastructure at MPOWER Cybersecurity Conference

Experts will Explain How Convergence of IT and OT is Creating New Risks and a Broader Attack Surface; Provide Best Practices for Addressing Blind Spots

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#ICS--Indegy, a leader in industrial cyber security, today announced that it will present a session with McAfee at the MPOWER Cybersecurity Conference on critical infrastructure protection on October 3.


WHO:

Michael Rothschild, Senior Director of Product Management at Indegy, has more than 20 years of experience in networking and IT security. Prior to his role at industrial security vendor Indegy, Michael worked in product management and marketing roles with Thales, RSA, SafeNet (now Gemalto), Dell, Juniper Networks and Radware.

Mo Cahman, Principle Engineer, Head of Architects EMEA/APAC for McAfee, has more than 20 years experience in security effectiveness testing, value measurement, and integrated security system design. He was previously McAfee Chief Security Officer for the Global Public Sector and also has led a Computer Security Incident Response Team for the US Defense Department in Europe.

 

 

WHAT:

The convergence of IT and Operational Technologies (OT), migration of previously isolated OT environments to IIoT, and increased attacks on government installations have forced agencies at the local, state and federal levels to make critical infrastructure and industrial security a top priority.

 

 

 

During this session, Michael and Mo will discuss the threats to ICS networks and the importance of achieving 100% visibility across both the IT and OT infrastructures to detect security threats that can laterally creep between these increasingly interconnected environments.

 

 

 

Attendees will learn:

 

  • What constitutes Critical Infrastructure, which is much more than most people think
  • Current industrial attack methods and targets
  • Actors and motivations
  • What has changed in the Critical Infrastructure threat landscape
  • Five ways to secure IT/OT infrastructures

 

 

WHERE:

ARIA Resort & Casino, Las Vegas

 

 

WHEN:

Thursday, October 3 at 4:40 PM Pacific Time.
