IT and OT Cyber Security: Different Sides of the Same Coin

Thought Leadership - 11:45 am - 12:10 pm

The diversity in manufacturing makes it difficult to define and adopt an industry wide security framework. Additionally, IT and OT operations have historically operated independently from each other, creating a challenge for manufacturers to assess their specific cyber security risk. The challenge will become even more complex as the connectivity of information and operational technologies increase, providing new opportunities for cyber criminals to target - and breach - manufacturing organizations. It is critical for manufacturers to consider vulnerabilities in both information and operational technologies in order to implement effective risk management strategies and to better understand the impact of a cyber attack on their infrastructure or a data breach specific to their business. 


  • Share successes and challenges in assessing cyber security risk across IT and OT operations. 
  • Discuss the use of scenario planning and impact analysis in development of a risk management strategy. 
  • The importance of threat intelligence to active cyber defense.
