A Live Virtual Event – Partnered with Yokogawa

August 18, 2021 1:00 – 2:00 PM EDT

Quantifying Cyber Risk for your OT and IT Networks

Your organization has a hand in driving the world forward and any successful cyber event in either your IT or OT environment has the potential for crippling impact – to the company and society. If you cannot quantify the impact of these events, you cannot prioritize your security focus nor fulfill your duty to drive down risk.

In the wake of recent cyberattacks impacting ICS networks of some of the world’s most important companies – such as Colonial Pipeline and JBS – and against a backdrop of increasing adversarial activity probing OT networks in critical infrastructure, it is absolutely necessary that you adopt cyber risk quantification. You need to be able to assess the financial impact of events; rank them in priority against one another, and communicate the potential risk to the organization in order to gain buy-in for security strategy and the investments needed to improve your security posture.

About The Workshop:

This workshop provided by industry partners Yokogawa and ThreatConnect will show you a way to strategically manage cyber risk within an industrial environment. Learn how to transition from the “break/fix” model of industrial cybersecurity to a business risk management strategy through cyber risk quantification, return on investment (ROI) for industrial cybersecurity solutions calculations, and cyber risk identification.

The Industrial Cyber Risk Quantification Workshop will address a wide range of topics, including:

  • The rapidly changing threat landscape for ICS and critical infrastructures
  • The key cybersecurity business challenges that directly impact your ability to focus on the most important cyber risks
  • The implications of the security standards forthcoming from DHS
  • Why ICS environments need to begin quantifying cyber risk and how automated Cyber Risk Quantification makes it possible in a matter of weeks, rather than months or years
  • How automated CRQ and Cyber Risk Board Reporting can help you add cyber to the realm of enterprise risk management, change the way you prioritize, focus, and gain business buy-in of your cybersecurity strategies

Matthew Malone
ICS Cybersecurity Consultant, Yokogawa

After graduating from Texas A&M, Matt embarked on his eight-year career in the U.S. Navy as a salvage diver and bomb disposal technician. He completed two combat deployments and returned home to Texas to begin a career with National Oilwell Varco, a major manufacturer in the oil and gas industry. Matt moved to Honeywell as an account manager and later became a project manager. During his time as a project manager, Matt caught the cybersecurity bug and went on to work for a startup company to focus solely on ICS cybersecurity. He has since devoted his career to learning everything possible about how to secure industrial control systems against cyberattacks. Matt joined Yokogawa as a cybersecurity consultant and has since earned his GICSP certification.
