What You'll Learn:

  • Traditional and modern segmentation methods for operational environments including the risks associated with a flat network architecture
  • Segmentation practices to support compliance with NIST, IEC 62443 and other operational cybersecurity frameworks.
  • Applying and enforcing access policies based on who and what is connected. 
  • Dynamically assigning role-based controls to group applications, link data, and limit access to specific groups in order to fortify OT defenses providing fine-grained control that adjusts access based on continuously assessing the trust of devices and users.
  • Value of investing in a platform to deliver cybersecurity for all layers of the OT and IT network.
