Cybersecurity is a rapidly changing battlefield that requires awareness, continuous vigilance, and a consolidated response from everyone involved. Superior technology, the right allies and information advantages on the latest cybersecurity developments are important keys to success.
Because we know how important it is to stay up to date, we are happy to provide you with the newest cybersecurity insights researched independently by Gartner.
OT systems are increasingly being provisioned with networking and computational technologies, and your most critical operations might be exposed at risk. The two worlds of IT and OT are converging, with groundwork being laid for Industrial IoT, or IIoT – a matrix of interconnected sensors, instruments and devices that collect and share data for use across many industries, such as manufacturing, oil and gas, transportation, energy/utilities, and others. Cyberthreats are everywhere, affecting all technologies and organizations worldwide.
However, as the lines of distinction between IT and OT continue to fade, the attack surface of these cyber-physical systems continues to widen. Your attention in this is key as attacks by cyber criminals can manipulate entire value chains and often result not only in production outages but also in considerable damage to your image.
To be prepared for these upcoming threats we recommend getting to know the key challenges and recommendations to increase your security efforts that are part of the following complementary Gartner® Report: Facing New Vulnerabilities — Cyber-Physical Systems Mandate Changes to Traditional IT Governance
