Company Announces Distinguished Lineup of Speakers and Educational Session Agenda
NEW YORK – August 7, 2023 – Claroty, the cyber-physical systems protection company, today announced it will bring together hundreds of cybersecurity leaders for the second annual Nexus Conference, taking place October 10-12, 2023 in Miami, Florida. As the premier cybersecurity leadership event focused on protecting cyber-physical systems, Nexus provides an exclusive forum for industry leaders whose perspectives on securing critical infrastructure – from healthcare, to oil and gas, to transportation, to electric utilities, to pharmaceuticals and biotechnology – generate invaluable connections and new ideas that move the world forward.
Leaders in cyber-physical security speak highly of the event, sharing praise and value-gained from attending last year’s inaugural Nexus Conference:
Adam Zoller, CISO, Providence: “Nexus offers a level of expert-led content and peer collaboration unlike any other cyber conference I’ve attended. The significant insights and value yielded from attending the conference will certainly keep me returning for years to come.”
Javier García Quintela, CISO, Repsol: “The unique challenge of protecting cyber-physical systems creates a need for space for those in our field to exchange ideas around securing the most critical assets. Nexus brings together a community of folks who can discuss their successes, failures and actionable insights towards accomplishing our shared goals.”
Ted Douglas, Director, Global Automation, OT/ICS Cybersecurity, Technology and Architecture, Pfizer: “Nexus sets a high standard for delivering thoughtful sessions and content to help drive innovation in our industry. This conference truly creates a sense of community for the dedicated professionals working so hard to protect the technology underpinning society’s most critical systems.”
According to Gartner, Inc., “cyber-physical systems protection platforms that discover and protect assets in production or mission-critical environments are emerging as a leading market category,” and “the rapidly changing threat landscape and equally fast pace of vendor innovations are accelerating market maturity.” Now, more than ever, the protection of cyber-physical systems merits innovation, collaboration and diversity of thought.
“The era of digital transformation has left the world’s critical infrastructure at its most vulnerable,” said Yaniv Vardi, CEO of Claroty. “The convergence of the greatest minds in cybersecurity at Nexus presents an opportunity to face this challenge head on and offers a myriad of learning opportunities and insights for protecting an organization’s most critical assets.”
