Covid-19 has changed everything about our society and our world. How we work is no exception. Where relative distance may once have suggested the application of remote access, the term social distance made it a requirement. In the middle of the pandemic, we learn from our nation’s leaders of the constant assault of cyber attacks on our country’s critical infrastructure. The need for isolation of our systems is implied in this messaging. There are many lessons we can learn from these experiences that can be applied to our critical infrastructure and industrial automation. Join Courtney Schneider to explore the technical, political, and business impacts of remote access along with modern strategies to balance the business need for remote access with the risk management need to protect our people, processes, and equipment.
Utility Companies in the UAE are integrating their legacy systems with 4th Gen SCADA technology, such as AI and Automation, IoT, SDN and Cloud infrastructure, in order to strengthen their SCADA systems, and therefore boost productivity and modernise operations. Khalid Darwish will present utilities’ process of fortifying their SCADA network and provide insights into how your organisation can improve overall operations through modern technology.
· Understanding what technologies will integrate best with your legacy systems and how to trial technology without affecting regular operations.
· Evaluating methods of integrating modern technologies such as AI, SDN and cloud infrastructure into your SCADA network.
· Providing education and training to staff that enables them to adapt to new technology and operate them efficiently.
· Examining the challenges to fortifying SCADA systems with modern technology and evaluating strategies to combat these challenges.
Uncover the evolving challenges of securing industrial control systems, including digitized OT, exponential connections to Industrial IoT, and expanding internet-connected supply chains – and why artificial intelligence could be the answer. In this presentation, we will explore:
This panel discussion will discuss how Bettina Pickering from Coopers Brewery, and Allan Doherty from Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal have been combating the expanding threatscape against SCADA networks and how they have been uplifting and building their SCADA network security, particularly as we look into a post-COVID-19 operating environment.
