[Episode 12 - Wärtsilä Series Part 3]

Cyber incidents go from 0 to 100 in the blink of an eye. The recent cyber attack on Colonial Pipeline, one of the nation’s largest fuel pipelines, highlights this callous reality. With nearly half of the East Coast’s fuel supply disrupted, the conversation of protecting critical infrastructure is at the forefront of The White House Administration. Join our discussion with Wärtsilä as we talk about preceding real-life OT cyber incidents that have gone wrong.

Host Ian Bramson asks tough questions regarding the vulnerability of supply chains and debunks the "air gap" myth surrounding OT environments that claim limited access equates to cyber safety. Listen as Wärtsilä's industry experts Päivi Brunou, Head of Cyber Security, Technology Voyage; Matti Suominen, Head of Product Incident Response; and Paul Ward, Director of Cyber Strategy, explore supply chain risk management, the common red flags that have emerged from heightened connectivity and how organizations can increase their cyber maturity.
