MESA Smart Manufacturing Community: Smart Connected Factory-Investment Trends

MESA Smart Manufacturing Community: Smart Connected Factory-Investment Trends

Wednesday, July 6, 2022 (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM) (CDT)


Come share your experiences, stories, questions, and what you have learned in a safe, non-commercial environment. We seek to understand the state-of-the market, understand what companies have done that has or has not worked, documenting questions that MESA and the community can help answer. Overall, the goal is to accelerate each participant’s learning and progress toward Smart Manufacturing. 

Topic: Security Solutions for Smart Connected Factory: Investment Trends

Security is a crucial element for smart connected factory success. However, the broad array of possible use cases and technologies available to address them can be daunting. Join for this Sponsor-led session by Ryan Spurr of Connection to discuss:

  • Why security should be included in your smart factory strategies
  • Identifying top priority use cases and appropriate technologies
  • Challenges in implementing these solutions (organizational, skillsets, technologies)
  • Benefits of implementing specific technologies
  • Popular use cases and solutions such as zero-trust, OT logging and integration with SIEM/SOC, managed services, …

Ryan will discuss some practical reasons why including security with a smart connected factory strategy make sense such as protecting from vulnerabilities, industrial deep packet inspection, east-west traffic security risks, profiling to simplify security for OT end-users and provide trusted flexibility and bringing more holistic visibility of all security threats both OT and IT across the larger corporate infrastructure.
