Technical Conversation: OT Cybersecurity in Secured Engineering
OT system was originally designed on a flat communication network for "stuff" to work, not for security. Adversary had create real-life cases that disrupt/destruct on these unsecured system, and had defenders scrambling to protect their system to prevent re-occurrences. Furthermore, OT system is susceptible by emerging cyber threat vectors, standardization, and interoperability issues, bridging the gaps at the IT/OT ICS (industrial control systems) level. Defender is trying very hard to level up their capabilities to secure the OT environment, combining the engineering concepts with security methodology for a better secured OT system.
