Protecting Operational Technology to Safeguard Business Operations
Companies are currently facing a series of significant digital transformation challenges as Operational Technology (OT) environments become increasingly interconnected, smarter, and have a greater reliability on Commercial off the Shelf Technology (COTS). The business demand for the raw data and information produced by OT systems is growing exponentially both from an internal and external perspective.
As the demand for operational data increases, so has the volume of cyber-attacks specifically aimed at OT systems with these attacks becoming significantly more sophisticated, advanced and persistent. Cyber-attacks within the OT environment have the potential to impact a number of aspects of a company’s business including safety, health and environment, production operations, information integrity, financial performance, and reputation.
