What is it about OT that makes overcoming the fundamentals so difficult to achieve? Stefan Liversidge, Systems Engineer at Fortinet joins Jamison Nesbitt, Founder of the Cyber Senate for a educational discussion on OT security. We hope you enjoy the Podcast!
The fundamentals are simple; patching, segmentation, malware controls, visibility – but what we are
trying to achieve is no easy feat when you look to dismantle more than 20 years of ad hoc OT
security measures as there is still risk during the implementation phase.
Key points to be discussed:
Technical controls / process and people
Poor visibility (automation)
Organisational structure to support OT
Manage risk faster
Contain threats quicker
Green field vs brown field
Skills from the ground up
Managing multiple streams of activity
Iterative, agile process, we learn, we move forward
Rapid threat containment
