    Blumira’s Security Advisor Series: Security Monitoring for ICS


    Internet-connected industrial control systems (ICS) and operational technology (OT) are common targets for attackers seeking to steal data or disrupt operations. These systems monitor critical infrastructure and complex industrial processes that operate power grids, transportation, manufacturing and other services.

    Join Clint Bodungen, CEO of ThreatGEN and Pascal Ackerman, Managing Director of Threat Services at ThreatGEN for a discussion on industrial control system cybersecurity.

    In this roundtable conversation, you'll learn about:

    • Security monitoring in the industrial space
    • A deep dive into SIEM (security information and event management)
    • Security risks and best practices for industrial systems

    This interactive, conversational-style session encourages questions and engagement with viewers – so sign up today for access to our security experts.
