IT meets industry congress

On the 19th and 20th of September in Frankenthal, Germany, the world of ICS and IT will come together at the IT meets Industry (IMI) congress and exhibition! And Sentryo wouldn’t miss it! In 2016, this major European congress in industrial cybersecurity was a great success. This year is shaping up to be even better yet!

IT meets Industry: an event that can’t be missed

IMI is THE meeting point for market leaders in automation, IT, and IT security and decision makers from industrial fields such as energy, transportation, health and chemistry. Over the course of two days of conferences and demonstrations, major voices in industry will have the opportunity to discover innovative products and solutions in industrial cybersecurity, capable of guaranteeing the security of their networks and their ICS.

Industries vs. the security challenges of Industry 4.0

With its connected objects, control systems and ever more powerful networks, Industry 4.0 has brought the industry a wealth of opportunities… but also threats! The major players in the industrial world need to commit to engaging in constructive dialogue around the interconnection of IT and automation. This interconnection offers major opportunities for the exploitation of industrial production sites and critical infrastructures but also brings with it complex risks in terms of security. Under the title “IT meets Industry”, the congress aims to bring together the OT and IT communities (which don’t always find it easy to work together…).

Two days of meetings and exchanges

Over the course of two days, visitors will be able to attend presentations and round tables and discuss major areas linked to securing industries. You will gain insightful information and have the chance to discuss top-level subjects such as:

  • cybersecurity in industrial environments,
  • risks and threats in complex production processes and automated environments,
  • technical and organizational measures,
  • feasible strategies for critical and industrial infrastructures,
  • interactions between IT and OT,
  • examples of best practices in the industry.

Sentryo presence at the conference

Tanguy Dufour, EMEA sales director at Sentryo, will be present at IMI to give a conference titled “Securing the distributed network of critical industrial infrastructure: an example from the field”. He will present how an operator of a gas transport and storage infrastructure tackles the challenge of securing a distributed industrial network by implementing an industrial cybersecurity solution, all while ensuring compliance with French and European regulations.
