Cyber in the Digital Age
[Episode 10 - Wärtsilä Series Part 1]
Let's talk digitalization and cyber risk. In this episode, we welcome Wärtsilä to discuss increasing connectivity as a major concern for cybersecurity in the digital age. "We are already living in this digital, ultra-connected world and times. After 2020, we'll be even more connected and doing activities even more remotely. There are already discussions about 'zero trust' in the OT industry, and 'what about 5G,' and all the upcoming new technologies," says Päivi Brunou, General Manager of Cybersecurity at Wärtsilä Voyage. "I think the greatest hurdle is human behavior, having everyone understand the importance of what is needed to make the asset secure," adds Eric Schreiber, General Manager for New Technologies at Wärtsilä. Listen now to a leading OEM's perspective.
