Cyber Risk Mitigation in a Manufacturing Environment via Security Segmentation

Learn how security segmentation can be a cost-effective and efficient approach to mitigate cyber vulnerabilities for manufacturing environments.

Small manufacturers tend to operate facilities with limited staff and limited resources enabling cybersecurity to fall by the wayside as something that takes too much time or cost. The lack of cybersecurity leaves small manufacturers vulnerable to cyberattack. Some assets used by a manufacturing company need more protection than other assets. The grouping of assets according to the protection they need and placing appropriate cyber protection measures around these groups of assets is security segmentation. This session provides an overview of security segmentation, and then present a systematic yet simple six-step approach for security segmentation design.

Session Objectives: 
  • The intended audiences for this session are people managing the IT/OT systems at a manufacturer who could be the operations manager, the network/security architect or a CISO. 
  • Learn how common cybersecurity weaknesses present in the OT environment can be mitigated with security segmentation.
  • Learn what are the building blocks of security segmentation.
  • Learn how to conduct a security segmentation design.
