Plant Floor

In Collaboration With

Come join us for our upcoming event!

March 6, 2019
9.30 AM to 3.00 PM
Cambria Suites RDU
Airgate Dr,
Morrisville, NC 27560

Come learn about Information Technology (IT) and Operation Technology (OT) Convergence, Risk Assessments and Cyberthreat Mitigation Strategies on the Plant Floor.

The convergence of OT/IT, while necessary to leverage new tools and techniques needed to improve OEE and other KPIs, also opens OT/IT networks to new generations of cyberthreats.

We don’t like when you get hacked - if you don’t either, this event is for you!

Join us to learn more about threat vectors, propagation pathways and definitive approaches to securing your infrastructure against these attacks.

Our key speakers are professionals and academics who will be sharing their expertise and imparting their know-how for attendees to acquire an in-depth knowledge pertaining to cyberthreat mitigation on the Plant Floor.
