With recent emerging cybersecurity threats and increased regulatory compliance requirements, many organizations are shifting their focus from OT security hygiene initiatives to a more structured and sustainable program. Unfortunately, a lot of these initiatives are not achieving their goals and failing to provide business value and protect mission critical assets. An assessment in itself does not provide guidance for top priorities and/or milestones, it is difficult to prioritize efforts and select the most practical and effective countermeasures. If done incorrectly this will have an impact on project schedules and costs whilst also not significantly reducing the operational risk. In this presentation attendants will navigate through a multi-faceted approach to develop a priority order which an organization can use to address its risks.

This session will discuss how a pragmatic approach allows for “quick wins” in:
  • achieving milestone and compliance targets
  • supporting financial and operational planning
  • Ensuring objective and measurable progress towards finalizing outstanding activities
Ultimately, the prioritized approach helps to promote security best practices consistency within the organization.
