Cyberattack is now one of the biggest concerns for today’s business leaders as trends indicate that industrial control systems and critical infrastructure are being increasingly targeted.

Our upcoming Cyber Security events will discuss why industrial environments are becoming more vulnerable to cyberattack, whilst providing guidance on pragmatic and robust OT Cyber Security strategy built on feedback from our extensive industrial install base.

Bringing together cyber security specialists from SolutionsPT and Schneider Electric, we will cut through the noise and discuss the real challenges being faced by our customers today.

A Staged Approach to OT Cyber Security


Keynote Speaker

The Threat Within 

Jay Abdallah, Schneider Electric, Global Director – Cybersecurity Solutions

Industrial Control Systems in the past depended on isolation, proprietary networks, and hardware.  Once they were thought to be immune to the network attacks that have wreaked havoc on information systems.

Unfortunately, recent experiences prove this complacency is misplaced – the move to open standards such as Ethernet, TCP/IP and web technologies has let hackers take advantage of the industry’s ignorance.

During his keynote Jay Abdallah will deliver a summary of the recent ICS attacks and will take a look at the lessons that can be learned from such events, before shifting his attention to ‘Defense in Depth’ solutions.
