In the face of uncertainty such as ransomware attacks, global pandemics, supply chain disruptions, and increasing geopolitical unrest, public and private organizations are evaluating their operational cyber readiness. Due to the importance of these systems, critical infrastructure is a significant target for cyber attacks. Cyber attacks on critical infrastructure could lead to safety issues, unscheduled downtime, and reputational impact.
To ensure the protection of operational technology (OT), the internet-of-things (IoT), and industrial control systems (ICS), you need to implement continuous security improvement programs.
Protect the most vulnerable and strategic assets
Increase the visibility of operational technology (OT) assets
Prepare to defend against emerging threats
Develop an understanding of how OT and IT assets converge
Coordinate between the public and private sectors
Gain visibility of all assets in your environment, including IT and OT assets.
Test your actual network and cyber defenses against emerging threats.
Integrate government directives into your policy for new and existing critical infrastructure.
