HSD Café Talks: IT, IoT, OT Cyber Security Integration

28 mei 2020
Auteur: HSD Foundation

A revolution can be recognized by the amount of innovations in which IT and OT come together. This may eventually encompass the entire physical world, the so-called Smart World


This is the first topic of the first HSD Café Talks, that HSD Office presents to you. HSD Café Talks is an online combination of sharing knowledge and different views from premium partners in the HSD community. But also reaching out to you asking for your opinion.


IT, IoT, OT Cyber Security Integration, what is it all about?

A third dimension, the Internet of Things (IoT), has a major impact on organisations and society. Development accelerates the relationship between information (systems) and physical systems. In many organisations there is still a virtual wall between the system, process, people and culture in the IT and OT world. IT, IoT and OT integration comprehends various industries, including transport, utilities, education, housing, safety, the agricultural sector, manufacturing industry, retail, healthcare and consumer electronics.

Part of the cyber security challenge lies in the traditional barrier between IT and OT. While IT focuses primarily on the integrity and confidentiality of components, OT focuses mainly on availability. Does the answer lie in breaking down these separate silos with the aim of integrated cooperation?
