The growth of operational technology (OT) and its integration with IT in the industrial context is inevitable.
This integration brings obvious operational benefits. It also brings new cyber threats. When the historically separated technologies of IT-OT become a single network, a fully integrated security system is essential. This paper explains why – and how it can happen.
Report contents include:
1.- What is OT and how is it different from IT?.
- OT in a nutshell
- IT – and how it differs from OT
- OT-IT convergence
2.- The OT attack surface layer.
3.- Solutions enabling OT cybersecurity.
