Around 80% of our global manufacturing capacity and infrastructure was not build in this century and that is a good thing. Long term investments mean commitment and a perspective of growth and stability. And it can also become a bad thing when we fail to ensure Cyber Security for the Industrial Control Systems.
The challenges are not the availability of adequately protected and manageable upgrades of legacy Industrial Control Systems. Most vendors have them available, and for those vendors which are no longer serving the market, there are alternatives. The challenges is that we are still not aware of the risks of those legacy Industrial Control Systems and are not addressing them with the right priority. Back to the Future Cyber Security addresses all organizational challenges and delivers a clear roadmap to embrace the existing global manufacturing capacity and infrastructure in our Cyber Security stance. With the right priority, resources and budgets!
About Dr. ir Johannes Drooghaag
Dr. ir Johannes Drooghaag, commonly known as JD, started his career in Applied Information Technology and quickly realized that the development and complexity of technology outpaces the development of our understanding of technology.
Working based on the principal that we don’t have to understand the bits and bytes to use technology, but we must understand how to use it optimal and secure, Johannes developed a wide range of consulting services, training programs, keynotes and workshops to allow people and organizations to do just that: embrace technology in the optimal and secure way. The Human Element in Cyber Security, The Human Element in Agile and Cyber Security for Road Warriors (and Couch Potatoes) are examples of these programs.
Working as consultant, trainer and speaker with clients and partners around the globe, the mission is crystal clear. Bridge the gap between what we do and what we know.
I am JD. I love what I do, and so will you!
