Platinum Sponsor to Host Two Presentations Addressing Complexities and Risks in Operational Technology Environments


TEL AVIV, Israel and ATLANTA – October 24, 2023 – OTORIO, the leading provider of operational technology (OT) cyber and digital risk management solutions, is are proud Platinum sponsor of the ICS Cyber Security Conference, the premier event for Industrial Control System security. The company will host two presentations that address the complexities and risks in OT environments. You can now watch the below OTORIO presentations from the event:

Why Most OT Vulnerability Approaches Fail: A Risk-Based Strategy with the Delek US Case Study
Tuesday, October 24, 2023, 1:45-2:30 pm in room WINDSOR C

OTORIO CTO and co-founder Yair Attar present a case study, together with representatives of Delek US, on the failures of conventional OT vulnerability approaches in the energy sector and the importance of establishing an integrated, unified view of disparate solutions. Attendees gained insights into real-world challenges, actionable strategies, and the imperative of effective collaboration between security and operational teams.


Reinforcing Defense in Depth (DID) in OT Environments
Wednesday, October 25, 2023, 3:20-3:50 pm in room WINDSOR DE

OTORIO CTO and co-founder Yair Attar unravels the intricacies of implementing DID in OT environments and explains how organizations can navigate these challenges to optimize their cybersecurity investments. He evaluates the limitations of current approaches and outlines a framework to improve, scale, and streamline OT digital and cyber security posture through assessments, planning, and risk-based strategies. The presentation emphasizes the significance of a unified risk model that guides organizations toward enhanced business resilience. As a practical takeaway, Yair presents a new framework by MITRE called D3FEND, which is a rising star in analyzing effective countermeasures for IT and OT environments, and showcases how it can be leveraged for a threat intelligence-driven DID prioritization.


Shared Responsibility in DCS/SCADA: Challenges & Actionable Strategies
Thursday, October 26, 2023, 11:30 am-12:00 pm in room WINDSOR C

OTORIO field CTO Dave Cullen delves into Industrial Control Systems and the complexities arising from stakeholders’ shared responsibility for diverse security aspects. By scrutinizing real security issues within common DCS & SCADA systems, including SIEMENS PCS 7, GE CIMPLICITY, and ABB 800xA, he sheds light on ambiguous accountabilities and shares practical recommendations and tools.


OTORIO's presentations will emphasize the challenges of securing operational environments and stress the importance of proactive cybersecurity measures. OTORIO will provide practical recommendations, tools, and case studies that underscore the significance of collaboration between security and operational teams and the need for unified, risk-based strategies to enhance business resilience and effectively manage cyber risks in industrial settings.

In today's digital landscape, industrial systems experience unprecedented levels of cyber attacks. The stakes have never been higher, from critical infrastructure to industrial manufacturing and transportation. OTORIO's flagship solution, RAM², provides automated visibility, risk identification, and compliance auditing to ensure resilient operations and mitigate critical cyber risks across the organization.

SecurityWeek’s Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Cyber Security Conference is the largest and longest-running event series focused on industrial cybersecurity. Since 2002, the conference has gathered ICS cyber security stakeholders across various industries and attracts operations and control engineers, IT, government, vendors and academics.
