It’s no secret that industrial organizations are at the forefront of cybersecurity threats. A recent report by IBM X-force revealed the manufacturing industry jumped from the eighth most targeted industry to the second most targeted from 2019 to 2020. Industrial organizations are targeted because they have a lot to lose during operational downtime. Attacks on OT can also pose a threat to human life and safety.
But a divide still exists between IT and OT when it comes to security. How can you bring these two sides together? Organizations can create a united front by creating a converged security operations center (SOC). Already used regularly for IT security, a converged IT/OT SOC can give you greater visibility across your operations and help you defend against outside threats.
