Case Study Roundtable: Lessons from the Field – Secure Remote Operations and Maintenance for Critical OT Infrastructure.

The pandemic has introduced a paradigm shift that has recalibrated the risk appetite for owners and operators of critical infrastructure as it relates to remote working. As businesses globally overcome the challenges associated with lockdowns and maintaining their bottom line, remote working has provided the much-needed relief. Nonetheless, is it possible for owners or operators of critical national infrastructure to operate and maintain their services remotely? This session discusses the typical security risks faced by power utilities when undertaking essential activities remotely and recommendations for mitigation of the same. Key takeaways:
• Cyber risks associated with introducing remote access to power systems infrastructure.
• Methodology for effective risk mitigation in OT and control systems environments for enabling secure remote access.
• Lessons learned: remote vs in-person – and its influence on safety.
