Operational Technology (OT) is everywhere around us and the digital revolution progresses across all industries. Especially in production, OT systems were traditionally thought to be “protected” by an air-gap separating them from the highly connected (and thus highly vulnerable) IT-world.
This is no longer the case as IT/OT convergence, which has already progressed for quite a while, was accelerated by the increasing use of IT technologies in industrial systems. This fusion brings with it a completely new world of benefits, efficiency, and flexibility. But it also opens plants, shop floors, production facilities and vital infrastructure to the darker world of traditional IT threats.
With proper security mechanisms implemented for industrial networks, organizations can increase their competitive edge and benefit from the efficiencies when interconnecting environments. Effective OT security protects business-critical processes, systems and people, and reduces security vulnerabilities and incidents.
Orange Cyberdefense works with customers in many different industries, with similar challenges related to the use of industrial control systems, SCADA environments, health and medical equipment, etc. Many challenges are the same, and security solutions must be applied across OT and IT environments to enable efficient operations and management. Our Industrial Security Services are designed to meet all compliance requirements with regulations such as standards such as NIST 800, IEC 62443, NIS 2.
Extending your security program to OT environments starts with understanding your assets, networks, threat landscape and attack surface.
Increasing connectivity of IT and OT requires secure network design and segmentation to protect and access assets in your network.
Detecting complex threats in increasingly connected IT and OT environments requires integrated threat detection capabilities.
Being prepared for security incidents gives you the best chance of minimizing the impact.
