Information technology (IT) cyber security solutions tend to focus on locking down data when under cyber-attacks.
This approach doesn’t work so well for operational technology (OT) used on automation controls.
Imagine, for example, a firewall blocking programmable logic controllers (PLCs) from opening and closing valves at an oil refinery.
At the same time, OT for process industries is becoming more like IT — increasingly using the same hardware, software, networking protocol, and operating systems.
