"There is often a lot of focus on IT as end users are connected through it, but [the industry] often doesn't see the need of connecting IT and OT together," Avvaru says.

  • Why IT and OT networks need to be separated;
  • How IT can get involved with OT;
  • How OT security practices can be aligned with information security strategies.
