Protect Your ICS Environment from Ransomware with Risk Assessments

On-Demand Webcast|1 Hour

Ransomware has captured the attention of many due to its far-reaching impacts on industrial control systems. Once an issue that affected IT infrastructure only, now ransomware can target control processing, logistics, distribution, and delivery of critical goods.

Ransomware adversaries employ criminal behavior and ransomware groups disappear and reappear frequently as they work to evade law-enforcement. Owner operators can stop ransomware before it becomes a problem, using an author invented risk-control and mitigation approach rooted in classical mathematics and complex systems theory.  

Join the webinar to learn about:

  • Ransomware trends and their impact on ICS
  • The emergence and disappearance of ransomware adversaries
  • A risk assessment metric to prevent ransomware
  • The role of classic math and complex systems theory
