SANS Webinar: Palo Alto Networks and CyberX Integration: Accelerating the Time Between ICS/SCADA Threat Detection and Prevention

Dharminder Debisarun and Dan Shugrue

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) is unlocking new levels of productivity, helping organizations improve safety, increase output, and maximize revenue. At the same time, digitalization is driving deployment of billions of IIoT devices and increased connectivity between IT and Operational Technology (OT) networks, increasing the attack surface and risk of cyberattacks on industrial control systems.

This webinar will discuss how to secure ICS and SCADA environments using the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform and CyberX’s purpose-built ICS cybersecurity platform.


  • Overview of ICS/SCADA security basics
  • State of ICS Security: Findings of the CyberX “Global ICS & IIoT Risk Report”
  • How Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewall and advanced endpoint protection technologies can be used to segment ICS networks, control ICS protocols, and block network threats as well as unknown threats on ICS hosts such as HMIs, engineering workstations, and automation servers.
  • How CyberXs out-of-the-box, API-level integration with Palo Alto Networks provides automated asset tagging, granular asset-based policies, and real-time response to ICS-specific threats. Well also learn how CyberXs automated ICS threat modeling can be used to prioritize and simulate mitigation of attack vectors on the organizations crown jewel OT assets and processes.
