Over the past few years, I have been hearing a lot about the security issues and, therefore, the security requirements for Operational Technology (OT), as well as for the Internet of Things (IoT) technology. Experts often describe these security issues as fundamentally different from Information Technology (IT) security challenges. I felt that these differences should […]
Cybersecurity has played second fiddle to safety for OT systems, if it has been considered at all. This is changing, however, with the integration of IP networking and the adoption of other standardized protocols in OT. Now, cybersecurity, with the ability of cyber-attacks to produce physical world results, is becoming essential to safety. Find out about the latest research trends and standards for OT systems cybersecurity. Learn about the emerging products to secure OT systems, IoT systems and IIoT systems and how each of these technology groups differ in security approach. Find out about some of the threat trends that are affecting our critical infrastructure, and discover how the Purdue Model is changing with the addition of boundaryless computing, movement to the cloud and 5G, employment of autonomous systems, and distributed ledger technology.
