Securing your Machine: Cybersecurity for Industrial Control Systems

Air Gaps? VPN’s? Firewalls? Explore how to protect aging and current equipment from cyberattacks and downtime.

Industry 4.0, Internet of Things…the marketing term doesn’t matter, but the idea does.  Manufacturers want to make data driven decisions with information from the factory floor.  Getting data requires networking machinery.  This brings up the question: How do I protect my assets?  In this webinar we will explore different options to protect old and new equipment from bad actors.

Registrants will have an understanding of protection methods for old and new equipment upon participating in this webinar.
