RIDGEFIELD, Conn., June 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Owl Computing Technologies (www.owlcti.com), Inc., a cybersecurity solutions provider, is proud to announce two upcoming speaking engagements at the Rockwell Automation TechEd. TechEd is an annual week-long educational event that provides over 170 hands-on labs, technical sessions and discussion forums, designed to help attendees (machine builders, integrators, technical personnel) with continuing education regarding industrial control systems.
Mr. Dennis Lanahan from Owl has been invited to provide an educational presentation to attendees on the use of data diode cybersecurity for protecting industrial control systems which are a significant part of the Industrial Internet of Things. The Owl presentation will occur on Monday June 13th at 3pm and again on Wednesday June 15th at 2pm. Owl has been a Rockwell Automation Encompass partner since 2013 and throughout the week Owl will also be performing live demos of their cybersecurity solution (http://www.owlcti.com/product-sheets/CI-Faqs_Rockwell-PS.pdf ) that interoperates with Rockwell Automation equipment and software.
"As documented by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), hundreds of incursions into industrial control systems are reported each year," noted Dr. Ronald Mraz, President & CEO of Owl. "To help protect these systems, the DHS has provided guidance for protecting industrial controls systems which includes the use of data diodes. Owl has been securing critical infrastructure networks for over nine years and we appreciate the opportunity to share those experiences with operators trying to protect their networks."
