Industrial control system cybersecurity

With great connectivity comes great risk. Protect core operations with security expertise and industry insight.

Why ICS cybersecurity

Changing business models, increased cost pressures and new regulatory requirements are accelerating the need for operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) convergence. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) enables unprecedented levels of real-time connectivity, visibility and control across core operations – while dramatically increasing cybersecurity risk.

Conventional security is not enough to protect against proliferating cyber threats to both OT and IT systems. Industrial control systems (ICS) on OT networks have different operational requirements that impact the ability to adapt and respond to new cybersecurity threats – and open up new avenues for cyberattack. ICS cybersecurity strategies are specifically designed with asset and operational requirements in mind to protect critical processes without negatively impacting efficiency, productivity and safety.

Digital is flattening the traditional OT/IT hierarchy and introducing new cyber risk.
