The Convergence of OT Security with IT Security
Featuring: Rock Lambros, CEO and Founder, RockCyber and Sean Martin, ITSP Magazine
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. In this post, Rock Lambros, CEO and founder of RockCyber, discusses how CISOs are taking the lead by pushing for OT and IT teams to collaborate to understand each other’s challenges and how their knowledge can help improve the security postures of each other’s networks. Lambros also examines the different perspectives of IT and OT teams and how CISOs can collaborate with OT teams to achieve organizational success—where operational and information systems benefit from a strong security posture that allows the company to function at peak efficiency.
