with Diana Kelley, CSO2 (Chief Strategy Officer/Chief Security Officer) and co-founder of Cybrize, Executive Mentor, Research Analyst, Security Keynote Speaker
For many years IT (information technology) networks have operated independently of OT (operational technology) networks. But digital transformation and the cloud drove convergence of the two as OT networks were connected to other networks and (ultimately) to the Internet.
While this convergence brings new opportunities, it has also fostered a need for IT and OT teams to work together to ensure operations are protected and available. In a world where bad guys can search for misconfigured or vulnerable OT infrastructure using technologies like Shodan, the OT side of the house can represent both tempting targets and a pathway into the organization for lateral movement.
In this session we take a look at the differences between IT and OT and at the important characteristics that are shared across both. Rather than being at odds with each other, IT and OT teams can be better together.
