CISOs need to leverage artificial intelligence and machine learning for risk assessments to support their efforts to protect OT infrastructure from attacks, Lee says in an interview with Information Security Media Group.

In this video interview offering a preview of his presentation at the RSA APJ three-day virtual conference that starts July 15, Lee discusses:

  • Why employing a sandbox approach to prevent malicious attacks is crucial;
  • The need for contextualizing the organizational threat profile;
  • Creating a holistic governance strategy to protect critical infrastructure.

As managing director of GRF Asia, Lee manages the Operational Technology Information Sharing and Analysis Center, supporting OT operators in the public and private sectors in the Asia Pacific with a mission to ensure the resilience of critical infrastructure and help asset owners increase their OT security. Previously, he served as a regional CIO, a senior information security manager, and various other security roles. He also has managed the design and delivery of information security and IT infrastructure services.
