HONEYWELL in cooperation with INTEC - INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGY S.A. successfully organized two (2) conferences with regards to “INDUSTRIAL (OT) CYBER SECURITY”.
The conferences took take place:
- In Athens: Wednesday, February 12, 2020, at Holiday Inn Athens Hotel, Attiki Odos, from 09:00 to 16:00 &
- In Thessaloniki: Thursday, February 13, 2020, at Mediterranean Palace Hotel from 09:00 to 16:00
The latest developments and trends on cyber-threats that industrial facilities and generally critical infrastructure are facing were presented and analyzed during the conferences. At the same time, Honeywell experts presented the latest cybersecurity technologies, best practices and what we should do to deal with cyber threats.
Among other Honeywell integrated solutions, the innovative solution "Secure Media Exchange" which protects against advanced threats transferred via portable USB units was presented. The USB is one of the most important "threat vectors" for automation systems and generally systems not directly connected to the Internet (airports operating systems, hospitals, etc.).
The presentation of specific applications / installations to large customers such as Hellenic Petroleum and TITAN was of particular interest as well.
Moreover, an ENISA - European Union Agency for Cybersecurity - representative analyzed the latest guidelines on the regulations and laws governing the area.
