Title: Enhancing Security in OT Environments through Network Segmentation: Exploring Zones and Conduits


In operational technology (OT) environments, safeguarding critical infrastructure against cyber threats is paramount. Network segmentation emerges as a pivotal cyber risk mitigation strategy, offering enhanced security by partitioning critical OT networks into distinct zones and regulating communication through conduits. By embracing segmentation strategies tailored to organizational needs, OT asset owners and operators can fortify their infrastructure against evolving cyber threats while preserving operational continuity and resilience. This session offers insight into the conceptual framework of network segmentation within OT environments, elucidating its significance and implementation nuances.

Join this session to find out more about how network segmentation approach can reduce the attack surface and enhance security for OT environments.
