The Crucial Role of Training in Enhancing Operational Technology (OT) Environments

In today’s fast-paced and interconnected world, Operational Technology (OT) environments are the backbone of various industries, from manufacturing to energy. Operational Technology (OT) is a critical component of industrial operations, encompassing both hardware and software that work in tandem to monitor and control physical devices. Its significance lies in its ability to drive and optimize […]

Advanced Ransomware Prevention in Industrial Control System Environments

Industrial control systems (ICS) that operate critical infrastructure are high-value targets for ransomware adversaries. Old SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) devices, PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers), DCS (Distributed Control Systems), and other ICS components in critical infrastructure lack security controls and are vulnerable to attacks. Mitigating ransomware risks in ICS environments requires a multi-layered strategy […]

The Importance of Scoping Before Assessing Cybersecurity in IT/OT Environments

As organizations integrate information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) systems, it becomes critical to evaluate cybersecurity risks across the entire connected environment. However, before you can effectively assess cybersecurity, it is essential to scope the evaluation properly. Rushing into an assessment without careful scoping can lead to incomplete results, wasted effort, and missed threats.   […]
