NSA & CISA Alert AA20-205A, How To Meet Recommended Actions For OT Systems

Presented by Nadir Izrael, Co-Founder & CTO at Armis and Curtis Simpson, CISO at Armis


In an unprecedented move the NSA and CISA, two US government entities with the greatest visibility into system attack surfaces and exploitation in the wild, issued an urgent joint cybersecurity advisory to all critical infrastructure and services operations that rely upon OT systems to deliver core services with Alert AA20-205A. This included recommendations that corresponding operations act with urgency to rapidly assess and manage the holistic set of security exposures placing such environments at risk.

Join Curtis Simpson, CISO at Armis (former CISO for Sysco Foods) for this in depth review of Alert AA20-205A, including:

  • The rise in threats to OT systems
  • The six recommended mitigation techniques proposed in AA20-205A
  • The need for a complete view of every device – OT, IT, and IoT
  • How to understand and evaluate Cyber-risk on “As-operated” OT Assets
  • How to implement a continuous and vigilant system monitoring program

All IT and OT professionals responsible for OT security for critical infrastructures and industrial operations are encouraged to attend.
