Responding to Cyber Incidents Affecting Operational Technology


Businesses across a wide range of industries increasingly rely on connected systems to manufacture products, monitor chemical processes, operate critical infrastructure and perform countless other sensitive functions. At the same time, sophisticated threat actors are attacking the industrial systems that operate these critical processes – generally referred to as “Operational Technology” – threatening to stop production, impair the integrity of safety-critical systems, or even cause physical damage or personal injury. These cyberattacks thus present substantial financial, legal, and reputational risks to companies that rely on operational technology, making it important for them to be prepared to respond effectively when cyberattacks occur.

Join the Dragos and Mayer Brown cybersecurity teams as they discuss how companies—whether in the manufacturing, infrastructure, oil and gas, energy, chemicals or other industries—can effectively mitigate risks associated with cyberattacks. The presenters will cover important technical, legal, and practical issues to consider, including:

  • Cyber threats to operational technology
  • Distinct challenges associated with these cyberattacks
  • Opportunities to enhance incident preparedness
  • Best practices for responding effectively to cyber incidents
