Inspired by the US Cyber Challenge, OSIsoft created one for our own PI System. This mission connects OSIsoft’s best and brightest to the most frequently asked question about the PI System and cyber security: "What should I do to harden my PI System against cyber threats?" During this session, the award winning challengers will be on hand to demonstrate their security hardened PI System running in the Azure cloud. Come see for yourself and learn what hardening techniques were judged best, and why.
