Cyber criminals are switching their attention to attacking Operational Technology (OT) . It’s a target where a successful breach could be more financially damaging to your business than a breach in your IT security. Defending against such attacks is surprisingly difficult. It requires up-to-date cyber know-how backed with deep engineering expertise. That’s an increasingly rare skillset. And that’s why you need Cybels OT Security.
Understanding the operational technology cyber security problem
As we move towards digital transformation and Industry 4.0, operational technology and information technology is becoming increasingly interconnected. Even a small-to-medium sized factory can have thousands of connections, each a potential weakness and an open invitation to cyber-criminals.
Here’s the problem. Most of your operation technology is much older than your IT systems. And at least some of it is probably bespoke. Modern IT security specialists are unlikely to understand your OT. But hackers might.
The simple fact is that your most serious cyber risks come not from IT but from vulnerabilities in your OT. Systems can be compromised; production lines can be shut down.
If you want to stay safe, we’re here to help. Not only do we operate a worldwide network of OT-specific Secure Operations Centres, but we’ve been protecting OT and critical national infrastructure across the globe for more than forty years.
