An IDC Executive Roundtable - Threat Management for Cyber-Physical Security Challenges

Dubai, January 28, 2019

Overview

Industrial and physical infrastructure is increasingly susceptible to critical risks and lax end-user control methods. Indeed, as such infrastructure becomes more and more connected and digital enabled, the threats posed by poor user authentication processes, unclear patch management, and a lack of detection controls will rise. This event will outline a robust approach for managing these threats and overcoming the challenges facing cyber-physical environments.
