Risk Management Acceleration is Necessary for European Critical Infrastructure

During their panel at CS4CA Europe, Trish McGill (Ilionix) and Cherise Esparza (SecurityGate.io) will discuss why speeding up the risk management process is not optional, but necessary for European cybersecurity teams in critical infrastructure sectors.


Why Europe, and Why Now?

The COVID-19 pandemic exposed the need for heightened security measures. But, defining common security requirements has proved to be tricky. While the EU is proposing regulations, nations have adopted and modified standards for themselves, making it a challenge for organizations as they attempt to meet all required standards at different levels of government, and across verticals and horizontals.


Adjusting for different standards across an organization’s global facilities can delay the already tedious assessment process, which relies on spreadsheets and manual processes. 


What European Critical Infrastructure Organizations Can Do According to the Experts

With over 20 years of experience across corporate, financial, oil & gas, chemical, manufacturing, government, and military, Trish McGill (Ilionix) has long been relied upon to navigate the complexities of cybersecurity regulations across Europe. She joins Cherise Esparza (SecurityGate.io) who brings 15+ years of experience and led an implementation across a global fleet of offshore drilling rigs to obtain the first Achilles Practice Certification.


Together they will discuss how European security teams in the critical infrastructure sector can achieve the acceleration necessary for their risk management programs.
