Gartner® Report: Hype Cycle for Security Operations, 2021

Over the past year, digital transformation efforts have shifted the types of threats facing industrial organizations. Operational and mission-critical environments are now heavily targeted, increasing the need for better asset visibility. Gartner says, “As digital transformation efforts increasingly target operational and mission-critical environments, OT security is evolving into cyber-physical systems security, with security disciplines converging.”

Gartner continues, “Security and risk management leaders are unable to prepare for every eventuality and, therefore, must make intelligent, business-driven decisions about which security operations technologies they choose to manage the risks to their organization.”

In this report, you will learn:

  • What operational technology (OT) security is
  • The security risks that come with the convergence of OT and IT systems
  • The business impact of operation disruption from OT ransomware attacks
  • Drivers and obstacles of securing OT systems
  • Recommendations when implementing OT security
