ManuSec USA is set in a world dominated by a focus on the Fourth Industrial Revolution, where manufacturers have increasingly adopted robotics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and advanced analytics. As automation becomes more integrated into society, it is paramount to address the cybersecurity risks that stem from the Industrial Internet of Things, cyber-physical security and even the data integrity of underlying systems.
With supply chains spanning the world, the manufacturing sector is also increasingly subject to cyber risks and challenges rising from the COVID-19 pandemic. Attackers are exploiting unprecedented levels of uncertainty, change in circumstances, and shifts in processes, increasing both the likelihood and impact of cyberattacks across a number of critical industry verticals including Pharma, Medical Devices, Chemicals, Food & Beverage, FMCG and, more.
Now more than ever, the skills, techniques, and processes for securing both digital and physical assets must evolve quickly in order to continue to safeguard manufacturing assets. With this in mind, ManuSec USA brings together 120+ cybersecurity leaders for 2-days of in-depth knowledge exchange, strategy planning, and insight building over 13th-14th October, in Chicago.
With senior representation from both IT & OT security environments, the dynamic double-stream agenda allows delegates to hone in on their specialist areas of interest, as well as plenary sessions that bind both groups of professionals. Expect to be inspired, educated, and energized, with new ideas to take-away and try in your organization as part of this forward-thinking agenda.
Key Themes Include:
- Managing cyber risks in the age of smart production
- Rolling out an OT security operations center
- Building high-performing security teams
- Overcoming the challenges of network design & security in manufacturing environments
- Developing, implementing & testing OT crisis management & disaster recovery plans
