In this interview, Brian Contos, Chief Security Officer for Phosphorous Cybersecurity, presents insights and examines the risks to IoT, OT, and network devices and the issues they can cause to an organization’s overall IT infrastructure.
As world events have demonstrated these past couple of years, crisis management is a requisite for doing business in today’s world.
Operational Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT) have historically been managed by separate teams. But with cyberattacks targeting IoT devices on OT systems in recent years and opening the possibility of breaches spilling over to IT networks (and vice versa), OT and IT teams realize just how much they need each other. As a result, the cybersecurity industry is seeing a convergence between OT security and IT security.
