C-suite’s Guide to OT Cybersecurity
One of the prevalent organizational and personal liabilities faced by executives and boards is in relation to cyber risk. While companies have relatively mature cybersecurity practices on the IT side, the operational technology (OT) cybersecurity still remains underdeveloped, adding to the overall risk. The reasons include a lack of clarity on roles and accountability for cybersecurity in organizations, a lack of required blend of OT and cybersecurity skills, underdeveloped cybersecurity tools and processes, etc. Many of the OT systems and devices were also not developed with cybersecurity in mind. This whitepaper serves as a guide for the C-suite in building cost-efficient and effective OT cybersecurity.
