MENLO PARK, Calif., January 2, 2017 – Nozomi Networks, the pioneer in cyber security and operational visibility for industrial control systems (ICS), today announced that Founder and Chief Product Officer Andrea Carcano will speak at Digital Bond’s S4 ICS Security Conference (S4x17) next week in Miami Beach, Fla. Technology experts from Nozomi Networks also will be at the event demonstrating how leaders in oil & gas, electric utilities, manufacturing and transportation are using the company’s solutions to strengthen ICS security and improve operational visibility.
Facing growing pressure to effectively secure ICS, operators are turning to deep packet inspection (DPI) to help safeguard insecure industrial communications protocols. But DPI is only part of the answer. Inadequate real-time views of control system topology, devices and behavior remain a fundamental obstacle to securing ICS operations. Historically, gathering and maintaining this information has been labor intensive, disruptive and ultimately economically infeasible. In his session at S4x17, Dr. Carcano will discuss how a new breed of ICS cyber security tools are being developed to answer these problems. He will also provide tips to help operators effectively work with IT Security to navigate solutions and strategies for cyber security success.
Who: Andrea Carcano, Founder, Nozomi Networks
What: “Become an ICS Jedi: Learning the FORCE of Deep Packet Inspection and Beyond”
When: 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. EST, Thursday, January 12, 2017
S4x17 is among the largest ICS cyber security events in the world. More than 500 ICS professionals are expected to attend this year’s event, for a three-day immersion into the future of ICS Security. S4x17 Is January 10-14, at the Filmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater.
