Crucial Considerations When Enabling Secure Industrial Digital Transformation
Organizations across all industries are embracing new digital tools and services to accelerate and grow their businesses. The rapid adoption of these technologies has caused internet-connected information technology (IT) networks to increasingly intersect with previously isolated (and often difficult to update with patches) operations technology (OT) networks. This overlap also means that the ever-expanding IT attack surface now exposes OT systems to threats previously avoided within these environments. The result is that traditional security approaches are insufficient to protect connected OT environments.
