The First Step in Securing your OT Environment: Discovering your Baseline with OT Security Risk Assessment

Executive Overview

Enterprises today rely on high levels of automation and Information Technology (IT) to meet the global demand for supplies in a modern competitive world. Managing Operational Technology (OT) security is one of the leading business challenges to achieving reliability and availability, ensuring health and safety, and meeting regulatory compliance. Furthermore, triggered by the outbreak of COVID-19, executives are actively looking into reconsidering and improving business operations.  From the business continuity perspective, cybersecurity management plays a vital role.

Organizations face the following issues in managing OT security: 

  • Difficulty in assessing risk due to low visibility of OT assets 
  • Mitigating risk and prioritizing investment
  • Keeping up with industry standards and incorporating safety systems in the scope
  • Managing security risk throughout the entire plant lifecycle with limited OT expertise

This whitepaper describes how companies and organizations can address the above challenges by taking the risk-based approach to cybersecurity management. Readers will learn: 

  • Why the risk-based approach is essential for effective security risk management
  • How technical security risks assessments determine the security baseline
  • How the outcomes of the assessments will lead to efficient investment and risk management
