The Impact of Digital Transformation on Operational Technology (OT)

Around 90% of OT organizations experienced an intrusion in the past year. Perhaps even more alarming, 78% experienced more than three intrusions.

OT vulnerability gaps are growing daily and, at the same time, digital transformation processes are creating new challenges and opportunities.

Watch this ISMG-hosted panel for an eye-opening conversation that covers the following topics and more:

  • What major changes is digital transformation causing in the OT world?
  • Is there a place for zero trust access in OT?
  • Is it possible to bridge the security gap between OT and IT teams?
  • Does OT/IT interfacing have any benefits?
  • What is your best advice for security leaders undergoing the digital transformation process?
