OT Cybersecurity Products: Evaluating, Selecting and Deploying

Several OT cybersecurity products are available today featuring targeted functionality to address the unique requirements around asset management, intrusion detection, patch management, configuration management, threat intelligence, etc.  While these products offer valuable insight into the real-time security posture of their ICS networks, asset owners are struggling with determining if, when and how they might deploy these technologies across their fleet of ICS systems.  Grappling with these issues can be an incredibly complex challenge for organizations with multiple facilities and diverse ICS platforms.  In this presentation we will share our experience working with asset owners and vendors on a structured process of selecting, testing and deploying OT cybersecurity products.  We will also present typical requirements checklist, sample vendor questionnaire and other collateral during the presentation.
