Given recent headlines and the frequency of breaches, most organizations will experience a cyberattack at some point. If you agree, then detection and response are critical to your path to recovery. In fact, research done by the Manufacturers Alliance for Productivity and Innovation indicated that 92% of manufacturing organizations surveyed believe incident response planning is extremely or very important to their operational technology (OT) environments. Let's face it, if you are evaluating whether or not to pay the ransom, it is a sign that that attacker has been doing reconnaissance for months before they strike.

During this panel discussion, we will discuss strategies for responding to and recovering from a cyber incident as a part of your business continuity plan (BCP).

Attendees are eligible to receive 1 CPE credit.
