Think cybersecurity is just an IT and OT concern? Think again. While IT and OT are the main defense, it's a team effort plant-wide to keep criminals out of facilities.

This webinar will examine real threats in the chemical industry. It's a must-attend event for anyone who clocks in at your facility.

Join this discussion as expert panelists, who have been directly involved in operations at refineries and petrochemical plants as well as water and wastewater treatment plants, detail many steps to strengthen cyber defense and establish capabilities to lower their cyber risk.
