OT and IT convergence is here. One of the biggest push in OT/ICS is the implementation of better visibility and increased network security monitoring. No matter if you have a fully in-house or hybrid Security Operation Center augmented with Managed Security Services.

This talk will discuss strategies, tactics, people, processes, and lessons learned in effectively integrating your OT NSM program into you IT SOC. This talk will lay out a flexible roadmap and walk you through the process of the before, during, and after steps that should be done in order to integrate your OT NSM program in your IT SOC, how to integrate, mature, response, and measure your OT NSM program within your IT SOC without losing the focus and critical aspect with better OT NSM monitoring within your organization.
