Cloud storage and transfer has meant a reduction on the use of removable media on an enterprise level. However, what happens when you can't access the cloud?
In OT USB usage in on the increase. The rise in the use of cloud storage has reduced the use of USB for data transfer in the enterprise. In OT where we don’t have access to the cloud how do you transfer data? With the increased accessibility of USB connected devices, often which have a smart element or micro compute and storage or a charging element to them, how do you protect against these in OT?
Every day your OT network is at risk of being compromised, and you most probably don’t know about it. A variety of removable media or contractor devices may be used on a daily basis, do you know what unwanted threats they may be bringing in through their toolboxes?
Removable devices are one of the major causes of infection that we see today, and this doesn’t seem to be slowing down. Pretty much every device today is a smart device, and everything has a USB port.
The most common process of checking removable media is called Sheep Dipping. This is a process and technical solution to ensure removable media is thoroughly scanned for malware and associated threats, covering a wide array of devices, and sanitising embedded file components.
In this webinar we will explore the different approaches companies are taking in using removable media and contractor devices safely, whilst continuing to protect their OT environment.
Our expert panel will discuss how companies are protecting their environments from the threat posed by removable devices, whilst still benefitting from the efficiencies in operational efficiency they provide.
In this webinar you will learn about:
Tom Bohan has been with the SolutionsPT Group since 2020 working in the OT cyber security team. Tom is currently a Product Manager at M.A.C. Solutions, responsible for our data transfer & security solution range.
This looks at how industrial organizations can protect themselves from the cyber security risk posed by USBs, laptops, and any other means in which data makes its way into and out of the plant.
Tony Mannion has been working at SolutionsPT for 20 years focussed on specifying and delivering successful solutions for the OT environment.
