Kaspersky Lab will present its unique industrial cybersecurity solutions at the Russia-China business forum on Industrial Cooperation: New Opportunities and Projects on Nov. 2 in Shanghai. The Forum will be held as part of the main China International Industry Fair CIIF-2016.  Head of Business Development and Critical Infrastructure Protection at Kaspersky Lab Andrey Suvorov and Director of Kaspersky Lab China Alvin Cheng will present on Industrial Cyberthreats - New Discipline for the Board of Directors. Suvorov and Cheng will talk about advantages and practical application of Kaspersky solutions in China.

 "Previously, industrial systems were protected from security breach due to their physical isolation. Nowadays, they are typically connected to the internet, which makes them vulnerable to cyberthreats. For example, on multiple occasions, hacker attacks caused major disruptions in power supply, thus vividly showing that industrial cybersecurity had to become a priority. When tackling the issue, it is important to bear in mind that it warrants a special solution because ensuring the continuity of technological processes in this case is more important than data integrity and accessibility.

We developed a set of industrial security measures that incorporates a special safety solution, practical industrial cybersecurity training, and expert support for complex projects throughout their lifecycle. From now on, Chinese enterprises will be able to benefit from our industrial security solutions," Suvorov emphasized.

Kaspersky experts will use an actual automatic process control system (APCS) model to simulate a cyberattack on a technological process and demonstrate a solution by Kaspersky that identifies and prevents incidents in the loop of cyberphysical systems that can result in significant losses.

According to CIIF Business Program Director Anton Atrashkin, "Cybersecurity is currently one of the most relevant topics. Kaspersky experience will appeal to both Russian and Chinese enterprises. In China, one company is closely cooperating with industrial organizations, local integrators, and regulators."
