The past decade witnessed a torrent of attacks on critical industrial networks, revealing the magnitude of damage caused by sensitive assets landing in the wrong hands. IT–OT convergence will allow organizations to increase efficiency through enhanced interoperability between disparate systems, paving the way for streamlined business analytics and process improvements.
