Indegy CEO to Demystify Active versus Passive Industrial Security Approaches at S4x19 Conference

Barak Perelman Will Explain Strengths, Blind Spots and Role of Each Model for Achieving Visibility, Security and Control over Operational Technology Environments

NEW YORK--()--Indegy, a leader in industrial cyber security, today announced that its CEO and co-founder Barak Perelman will present a deep dive session on “Active” versus “Passive” cyber security monitoring and threat detection in industrial control system (ICS) environments at S4x19 in Miami Beach.



Barak Perelman is CEO and Co-Founder of Indegy, a leading industrial cyber security company. Prior to founding Indegy, Barak led several multi-million dollar cyber security projects for the elite 8200 Unit of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). He has more than 15 years of hands-on experience in cyber security and protection of critical infrastructures.



One of the leading topics of conversation in the emerging field of industrial cyber security is whether to deploy active versus passive detection of threats. In this session, “Active or Passive Detection - Which is Better and Do I Have to Choose?”, Barak will dispel the myths and misperceptions associated with each approach. He will explain the strengths, limitations and pitfalls to avoid when deploying “active” versus “passive” security mechanisms in operational technology environments. In addition, Barak will present a reference framework that combines elements of both models to provide visibility, security and control that extends to the backplane configurations of individual ICS devices.
