Welcome to the relaunch of the Operational Technology Cluster of Cyber Wales.
New cluster managers Marie and Jules would like to welcome you to our first meeting.
The aim of this Cluster is to provide a platform to share intelligence and explore ideas on the specific cyber security challenges being faced by organisations working in Operational Technology (OT), Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) and Industrial Control Systems (ICS).
For our first meeting, our two speakers, Kat Abercrombie (Senior Pen-Tester at Arcanum Cyber) and Jules Farrow (CTO at Awen Collective) will introduce topics on the difference between IT and OT and why each needs its own security focus, and why asset and vulnerability discovery is vital to producing an effective OT cyber security programme. We'd also love to hear from you - a brief introduction on who you are, your interest in OT cyber, and what future topics we can focus on within our OT cluster meetings.
If you work in, or have an interest in, cyber security in the industrial sectors then we'd love for you to join us.
This event will be hosted by the wonderfully accommodating University of South Wales National Cyber Security Academy at their Newport City Campus and simultaneously virtually via Zoom. If you can't join us in person, we'd still love for you to join via Zoom where you'll be just as much part of the action (although you will need to provide your own Welsh Cakes!).
