1:00 – 1:30 Registration & Coffee
1:30 – 2:15 Dominic de Kerf, Corporate Plant Systems and Controls COE Leader at Cargill

OT Cybersecurity
In this presentation you will get an introduction of Dominic’s approach to OT security profiles.

2:15 – 3:00 Thomas Sturm, Process Automation Expert at Novartis

Patching in OT environment – and the challenges
Imagine, you are an engineer and you have (or have been) decided to patch your OT-System. Security is going to increase – it looks like – but how to manage it in detail – the challenge(s) are just about to start depending on who supports you with which tools.

The session will not provide technical details in depth- but highlights the processes that should be implemented. The session is not a pure presentation- it should be an exchange of experiences, good practices.

3:00 – 3:30 Yariv Lenchner, Director of Product Management at Indegy
Yariv Lenchner is the Director of Product Management at Indegy. Lenchner has over 15 years of experience as Product Manager, Product Marketing, and System Engineering in the field of ICS, Security, VoIP, IP Networking and Enterprise Software. Prior to joining Indegy, Lenchner was Product Manager and Product Marketing at CyberArk and NICE Systems and before that served as a System Engineer at the Israeli Air Force. Lenchner holds a B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering and an MBA, both from Tel-Aviv University.

Top 3 Use Cases for Automated OT Asset Discovery and Management
Each use case focuses on a key pain point in today’s critical infrastructure and industrial organizations. Without an up-to-date and accurate inventory of ICS assets, including automation controllers responsible for managing the physical processes, it’s virtually impossible to assess risk and apply effective defenses. As industrial organizations seek to defend their ICS networks against cyber attacks, the lack of automated asset discovery and management capabilities has come to the forefront.

In this session you learn more about:

  • Understanding and controlling the cyber security resilience of ICS assets
  • Improving operational incident response, shortening resolution time, and ensuring operational continuity
  • Complying with industry regulations
