About the summit
Operational Technology (OT) threats pose a significant risk to critical infrastructure as they can target industrial control systems and other operational technology systems that are vital to the functioning of essential services. These threats include both cyber attacks and physical attacks, and can result in system downtime, data theft, or even physical damage to infrastructure.
To strengthen critical infrastructure resilience, it is essential to include OT threats in risk assessments and mitigation strategies, and to ensure that appropriate defenses are in place to protect against them. Sharing insights and best practices for OT security is crucial in this effort, as is ongoing collaboration between industry and government partners to identify emerging threats and develop effective responses.
By addressing OT threats as part of a comprehensive resilience strategy, we can better safeguard our critical infrastructure and ensure the continued delivery of essential services.
The theme of this year's summit is "Strengthening Critical Infrastructure Resilience: Sharing Insights, Bolstering Defenses, and Mitigating Risk," and it aims to address the challenges facing the OT industry and the role of the OT-ISAC in strengthening critical infrastructure resilience. The event will feature keynote speeches, technical sessions, panel discussions, and networking opportunities.
