Breaches in the security of operational technology (OT) – the hardware and software used to drive industrial processes – are increasing in frequency with every given year. 

And yet, breaches of this particular nature continue to be among the greatest, most overlooked threats looming over global infrastructure and the safety of communities at large. 

We’ve recently written a playbook for Industrial Cyber Security, which can be dowloaded below.

This playbook is our contribution to educating industry as much as possible concerning OT security in 2022. In it, we put forward steps for taking an effective, holistic approach to OT security using an Assess & Define, Design & Implement and Operate & Maintain model with the specialised knowledge available to us.
