14th Annual Security

Building an Innovative and Effective OT SOC with Real-time OT Security Monitoring Capability


The challenges of an exponential rise in cyber risks, sophisticated cyberattacks, and a growing shortage of cybersecurity skills are now being felt in Operational Technology (OT) environments. Greg Villano, Industrial Automation and Control Cybersecurity Superintendent, is responsible for building Diamond Offshore’s innovative OT security program. He will discuss the business drivers and technical solution they implemented over now for nearly 4 years. Villano achieved executive support and funding, real-time anomaly detection, 24×7 security monitoring and global security operations in an efficient and OT-run Security Operations Center (SOC). This talk is relevant to many field applications.
