Network Security & IT/OT Convergence

Who Owns Industrial Cyber Protection?

"…reliance on control systems continues to expand across not only industrial settings, but also the operation & maintenance of our cities, our buildings and all kinds of modern smart applications. The convergence of IT and operational technology (OT) has now come into popular awareness as the lines between the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) have blurred and the media have given increased coverage to security breaches and their impacts."

IT vs. OT—What’s the Difference?

Traditionally, industrial enterprises have kept everything separate with information technology professionals managing the office network—an mild environment where internet speed & data security were paramount. On the plant floor, operational technology professionals addressed harsh environmental conditions with a closed air-gapped network & & focus on keeping
production running safely.

Secure. Reliable. Resilient.

Ensuring a secure and reliable industrial infrastructure in light of new cybersecurity threats.


Today's Picture—A Single Converged Network

Now, more devices on the plant floor need to be connected to the Internet. Remote locations must be managed from one central location. Executives in the office demand data to manage plant maintenance, upgrades, output quantity and quality and inventory levels.

That means blurry – or nonexistent – lines between IT and OT roles and responsibilities. The network of the future will be unified to serve both worlds.

Automation & Data Exchange in Real-World Applications

Merging automation networks of the factory (OT) with the data exchange office network (IT) requires intentional actions. Here are a few steps to get you started.

 

 

Trends & Data

While a majority of organizations have cybersecurity fears, few have been willing to invest in preventive measures. According to a survey by Gartner3, some of the most common reasons for delaying include:

The Cost of Catastrophe

Current data suggests three of four cyber events are due to unintentional human error or accident*

Whether malicious or mistaken, cyber events put worker safety at risk, shut down production, disrupt public utility services & erase profits.

 

The Lesson?

Start now—with your most critical assets. Start with auditing where you are today & aligning IT & OT protocols.

 

Enterprises that wait for the "significant" cyber event before they act will find a sobering price tag

Unintentional Threat $2M Excessive network traffic recently caused a major UCA nuclear plant $2M after cooling drive controllers crashed.
Accidental Exposure to Malicious Threat $14M Exposure to an internet worm shut down 13 auto plants for less than 1 hour, but cost the company $14M.
Malicious Intentional Attack $1T The Stuxnet virus set Iran's nuclear program back 2 years. A similar attack on the US could cost the government $1T.
