Session will show how the two companies are integrating technologies to tackle escalating threats to critical infrastructure operations.

SAN FRANCISCO, July 20, 2017 – Nozomi Networks Inc., the pioneer in real-time cyber security and operational visibility for industrial control systems (ICS), today announced that it will be at Black Hat USA 2017 next week to demonstrate how the company is working with Fortinet to address the modern challenges of securing industrial networks.

Cyber security professionals working with operational technologies (OT) have long understood the challenges of securing the systems that keep critical infrastructure up and running. And with attacks against energy and other critical infrastructure on the rise, the pressure to secure these operational networks is at an all-time high. According the Annual Black Hat Attendee Survey, 60% believe that a successful cyberattack on U.S. critical infrastructure will occur in the next two years. And while roughly two-thirds of respondents think it’s likely their own organizations will have to respond to a major security breach in the next 12 months, 69% say they do not have enough staff to meet the threat; 58% feel they do not have adequate budgets.

In a special session with Fortinet, ICS cyber security expert and engineer Paul Smith will discuss how innovations in artificial intelligence are helping address many of these concerns and will share how applied machine learning can map, model, detect and defend industrial control systems (ICS) in real-time.

Who: Nozomi Networks Technical Operations Manager Paul Smith, CET, GICSP
What: Machine Learning Advances ICS: How to Map, Monitor and Detect Cyberattacks in Real-time
When: Wednesday, July 26th 11:30 am PDT
Where: Fortinet Theater, Mandalay Bay Convention Center, booth #915

A Fortinet Fabric Ready Partner, Nozomi Networks has teamed with Fortinet to provide ICS environments a holistic security solution. Nozomi Networks’ SCADAguardian offers non-intrusive monitoring for ICS network, protocol, and device behavior. Combined with Fortinet’s FortiGate enterprise firewall, the joint solution optimizes productivity and business continuity for organizations reliant on ICS networks.

Now in its 20th year, Black Hat is among the world’s leading information security events, providing attendees with the very latest in research, development and trends. Black Hat USA 2017 kicks off Friday in Las Vegas with four days of technical training (July 22-25), followed by the two-day main conference (July 26-27) at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
