A recent-new buzzword in the IT cybersecurity space is OT (operational technology), along with its siblings ICS – industrial control systems, SCADA – supervisory control and data acquisition (system), PLC (programmable logic controller) and the like. These are actually not new, dating back to our parents’ and grandparents’ time.
What is new – and causing the buzz – is the convergence of OT to IT (information technology) – the connecting of these industrial devices, sensors, equipment, machinery, to the internet and WLAN, for easy communications, control, management, data flow and monitoring etc.
With the IT-OT convergence having IOT, 5G and the smart building / city / nation concept thrown in, it can only get out of control, and the hackers get a field day.
We take a high-level , non-complicated look at what the issue is and what are some of the mitigation practices, framework and tools to help make OT cyber-security closer to a reality, in a world where risk-based management and cyber-security itself are foreign words, up until now.
