Today’s OT Systems Need IT Security Capabilities
Industrial companies need strong OT cybersecurity programs to deal with today’s sophisticated threat environment. Facilities have become prime tar- gets for ransomware and sophisticated nation-state attacks. Insecure IoT devices, cloud connections, and increased use of remote access have exploded the pathways for attacks on critical systems.
Many industrial facilities have invested in some basic cybersecurity defenses, but they lack the resources and security management tools to sus- tain their effectiveness. Most facilities also lack the capabilities to rapidly detect and manage compromises before they create operational impact.
