In May and early June, cybercriminals have used Ekans/Snake ransomware to hold hostage businesses such as automaker Honda, Enel Energy and medical provider Frenesius. The attacks prevented these businesses from accessing vital files and systems until a ransom is paid and temporarily affected widespread shutdowns of their operations.
The current "Safe Health" guidelines to minimize the spread of COVID-19 are essentially a sound and proven layered defense strategy against the risk and spread of infection. In many ways, layering defenses can also be used when it comes to increasing the safety of your HMI/SCADA systems and minimizing the risk and cost of disruption to plant processes.
GE’s Senior Director Scott DuHaime and Toby Weir-Jones, Bayshore Networks' Chief Product Officer share three steps to increase the safety of your HMI/SCADA, which in turn can protect your plant processes and production against the risk and cost of disruption.
You will learn:
• Layered defense strategies appropriate for most operations
• Use cases for how GE and Bayshore Networks have integrated technologies to increase HMI/SCADA safety
• What you can do now to increase business continuity outcomes now and in the future
• HMI/SCADA Cyber Safety Checklist to all attendees at the end

Remote employees, third party contractors, maintenance technicians, and management are a tough problem for ensuring safe remote access into production OT environments. The COVID-19 pandemic makes it more important than ever to be able to securely manage remote access for our new "at home" workforces. VPNs only authenticate at the edge, and when a session first connects. What about protecting actions taken on assets within the network, and throughout the duration of the session?
Join Toby Weir-Jones, Chief Product Officer for Bayshore Networks for a look at how OTaccess™ can ease your way to controlling remote access into your OT networks and critical assets. Quarantine that dangerous activity before it ever enters your plant!
Due to concerns surrounding COVID-19 and recent travel restrictions, Bayshore Networks is not attending any near-term “in-person” events. However, we are actively organizing our participation in events scheduled for the second half of the year in hopes that this world-wide pandemic subsides to the point of no longer requiring the extreme measures we’ve all undertaken. Please watch for our posting of upcoming webinars, virtual events, and some in-person events we intend to join as our year progresses. Stay safe, stay well.
