  • Key factors for cybersecurity and privacy in the Internet of Things

    -
    Event Organizer: Optigo Networks

    Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) are different in a lot of ways, from their design to their maintenance workflows and more. When IT and OT merge, these differences create all new challenges for cybersecurity. 

    IT has standards for protecting device security, data security, and people’s privacy, but these standards do not make sense for many connected OT devices. In IT, for example, cybersecurity vulnerabilities are the absolute top priority. In OT, operations are the top priority, while network security is a close second. Ensuring the building is still functioning as expected is critical to maintain physical safety and security, before addressing a network vulnerability. 

    Last year, the National Institute for Science and Technology (NIST) released the report “Considerations for Managing Internet of Things (IoT) Cybersecurity and Privacy Risks,” exploring these exact differences and cybersecurity threats. The report is an in-depth analysis of current threats and how IoT devices can or cannot meet those threats head-on. 

    This is a huge opportunity to pull in your IT counterpart and collaborate on cybersecurity standards that make sense for your connected OT devices.

    Join us for a one-hour webinar digging into the report, where we’ll summarize what IT and OT teams on the ground should know about their systems and security. We’ll dig into top risks identified in the report, challenges for securing the Internet of Things, and NIST’s recommendations.

  • Webinar: Managing VLANs and BBMDs

    -
    Event Organizer: Optigo Networks

    VLANs and BBMDs seem at complete odds with each other. One is meant to separate and segregate traffic. The other is designed to broadcast messages across the network, without limit for which devices should get what messages.
     
    BBMDs and VLANs do coexist on IP and MS/TP networks everywhere. We need to know how to properly segregate traffic, while making sure devices get the information they need.
     
    Join our webinar with Robert Lastinger from Distech Controls, where we’ll do a live demo on a BACnet MS/TP network. We’ll share best practices you can apply to your networks today, show you how to configure MS/TP to IP routing, and answer all your burning questions about BBMDs and VLANs.

  • 10-Minute Webinar: Unresponsive Devices

    -
    Event Organizer: Optigo Networks

    Unresponsive Devices can cause a lot of unnecessary traffic on an  Operational Technology network, but it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what’s causing the problem. Unresponsive Devices could be caused by a misconfiguration, a physical issue, or a combination. Fortunately, Visual BACnet highlights exactly which devices are unresponsive, and which devices are searching for them, so you can go and investigate. 

    Join us on our 10-Minute Webinar, when we’ll explore top tips for finding and fixing Unresponsive Devices. Find out what usually causes such issues, and how you can resolve them.
