Operational Technology Security

Strengthen Your Cyber Security with Our OT Security Assessment

  • OT stands for Operational Technology, it is used as a common term for Industrial Control Systems (ICS), which as per NIST SP 800-82, include supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, distributed control systems (DCS), and other control system configurations such as skid-mounted Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) which are often found in the industrial control sectors such as electric, water, oil and gas, transportation, chemical, pharmaceutical, pulp and paper, food and beverage, and discrete manufacturing (e.g., automotive, aerospace, and durable goods).
  • ICS security, or industrial control system security, involves safekeeping and securing industrial control systems as well as the necessary software and hardware within.
  • With the current trend of convergence between IT and OT and the advent of “Internet of Things” (IoT) devices, an organisation’s risk envelope has increased exponentially. Now, a vulnerability in an OT or IoT system has the potential to bring down the connected IT systems or vice versa.
  • An OT Security Assessment is a useful first step for an organisation to identify the security status of their OT systems. It provides clarity on the gaps with recommendations in order to improve or maintain their OT security status. The assessment also provides an OT security strategy & roadmap that the organisations should adopt in order to strengthen their security defences.
  • For any organisation using OT systems, understanding the security posture of your OT systems is important because it will help you determine your OT security risks, guide your OT security strategy, determine your security projects, and influence your OT security spending. In addition, there are a number of international and local OT Security standards that organisations may like to follow, such as IEC 62443:2018, NIST SP 800-53, NIST SP 800-82, NIST CSF, Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) OT Cybersecurity Code of Practice (CCoP).
