March 24, 2021
From 8:30 am to 5 pm
Content produced in collaboration with Accenture Security, Cyber-eco, Deloitte, In-Sec-M and Prompt Innov.
Networks, infrastructures, factories, buildings… They are now all interconnected.
Immense risks and vulnerabilities surround Operational Technology (OT) environments :
With the IIOT (Industrial Internet of Things), SCADA Systems (real-time data acquisition and control system), used in distribution – water, electricity, gas – risk factors are increasing and the repercussions of a breach could affect up to the entire population.
Take action now for the safety of your industrial environments and critical infrastructures!
Who is currently responsible for it in your company?
What are the best practices to protect operational environments? Can we be trained in them?
Rencontres de génie : to be in control of your cyber protection
Rencontres de génie : to be in control of your cyber protection Open the doors of knowledge that will make you and your business leaders in OT cybersecurity!
Président BlueVoyant et ancien directeur du GCHQ

Program (in development)
Based on the report “Cybersecurity Review for the Industrial Internet of Things”, Robert Hannigan, former Director of GCHQ, will provide an overview of how threats to critical national infrastructure are being addressed so far. Are current cybersecurity practices adequate? How to envisage the future of this major problem?
Chairman of BlueVoyant (Europe) and former head of GCHQ
Robert Hannigan was Director of GCHQ, the UK's largest technical and cybersecurity agency, from 2014 to 2017. Robert established the UK National Cyber Security Center in 2016 and was responsible for the UK's first cyber strategy United in 2009. He recently published with Professor Sadie Creese of the University of Oxford a "Cybersecurity Journal for the Industrial Internet of Things". Robert is now Chairman of BlueVoyant, a cybersecurity services company, and Senior Advisor to McKinsey & Co. He is Senior Fellow at Belfer Center, Harvard, Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology, London, and Honorary Fellow at Oxford University. He writes and speaks regularly on cyber issues in the Financial Times, the BBC and elsewhere.
Traditionally OT environments have been isolated, and obfuscated by a variety of challenges including different management paradigms, but also technological challenges. However, with the advent of technology, connectivity, and the proliferation of IT technology being infused into operations or infrastructure this has been an Occam’s razor. Generally, you hear a ton of horror stories about how you can’t patch or secure these environments, and there are some truths, but they are largely myths.
Director of Cyber Security Insights, Verve Industrial Protection
Ron is a Director of Cyber Security Insights at Verve Industrial Protection, a critical infrastructure-focused organisation that specialises in holistic services and products that work well across IT and OT environments for effective cyber security, controls and management. He has over 12 years of ICS/OT embedded experience, integrations and reviews in a variety of domains (pharma, consumer packaged goods, oil & gas, energy), systems engineering, vulnerability research, and was recently recognized as a top 40 engineering leader under the age of 40.
Description de la conférence à venir
Chef de la sécurité de l'information, Société de Transport de Montréal
Après avoir dirigé la mise en place d’une pratique de cybersécurité industrielle dans une des plus grandes entreprises minières au monde et passé quelques années à conseiller des entreprises d’industries variées en tant que directeur cybersécurité d’un grand cabinet du « Big 4 », Louis-Philippe Desjardins est présentement Chef de la Sécurité de l'Information à la Société de Transport de Montréal. Son expérience technique d’ingénieur logiciel combinée à sa compréhension des enjeux liés aux affaires sont des atouts essentiels qui lui permettent de comprendre les véritables problèmes des entreprises, d’aider les dirigeants à définir leurs besoins, d’apprécier les contraintes techniques, d’identifier les solutions possibles et de créer de la valeur pour les organisations. Au fil des années, il a aidé plusieurs entreprises évoluant dans différents secteurs à développer et implanter des stratégies afin de gérer efficacement les risques liés à la cybersécurité. Bien que passionné par tout ce qui touche la gestion des risques, il se spécialise dans la gouvernance de la cybersécurité, la mise en place de plans de continuité des affaires et de relève TI ainsi que la gestion des identités et des accès.
