As we sail into this year’s summit, what’s in store?

Innovation. Performance. Resilience.

Tune in to the Fortinet Live Studio where we will discuss how organizations deal with the effects of the continuing Covid-19 crisis, how asset owners in every industry are balancing the competing needs of productivity and safety, whilst facing threats of cyber-attack and ransomware far beyond anything we have seen before. Dealing with these challenges is at the heart of Fortinet Secure OT 2021, looking at OT cybersecurity from three angles: innovation, performance, and resilience.

Studies have shown a surge in cyber-attacks in the last year, including a ten-fold increase in ransomware. Factories, pipelines, and other critical infrastructure have all been targeted. Next-generation OT cybersecurity is becoming available that helps protect these assets with high-performance solutions that increase the resilience of production facilities. The live plenary session of Secure OT 2021 will be held on 09 November from 10:00 to 12:00 CET. It will be followed by mini-webinars on 10, 16, and 18 November focused on specific threats like ransomware, supply chain threats, and remote access attacks.
