With the growth of IoT connected devices, cybersecurity risks are not isolated to the IT department or your mobile device. The cyber world is colliding with the physical processes of manufacturers, energy companies, oil and gas producers, and even public transportation. This connectivity with these cool technologies has created new possibilities for our homes, cars, and businesses. 

It's clear we are experiencing a new era of technology: Cy-Phy, or Cyber-Physical. Cy-Phy is being driven by the implementation, and convergence, of technologies—including OT, IoT, 5G, edge computing, and artificial intelligence. These, combined with new technologies just over the horizon, are fundamentally changing how we interact with our surroundings.

Operations teams, engineering, and security professionals will inevitably be drawn into the Cy-Phy revolution, whether prepared or not. This revolution can either become the next wave that overwhelms our already at-the-limit teams, or it can become an enabler of business because we have already implemented the foundational elements of a security strategy that will allow us to thrive in the emerging Cy-Phy environment—including speed, integration, collaboration, and automation.

Join a fireside chat between Fortinet's Global CISO, Phil Quade, and SecureWorld's Emmy award-winning journalist, Bruce Sussman, as they discuss the implications of the Cy-Phy revolution on your security strategy. They will explore its impact on IT/OT convergence—blending legacy and modern technology—and Zero-Trust network access supported by AI-based threat prevention and detection.

Be prepared for a future that seems to exceed our imaginations by ensuring your approach to securing the enterprise is sound and foundational solutions are firmly in place.
