Fully understanding the operational technology (OT) environment — which assets are connected to the OT network, what unexpected traffic looks like, which vulnerabilities to prioritize, and which potential threat behaviors might be lurking within — is fundamental to strong industrial cybersecurity. Without solid OT visibility, it becomes nearly impossible to fully understand the risk landscape of industrial control systems (ICS) and OT networks. Yet, OT visibility requires a great deal of planning and careful execution to improve and protect operational security outcomes.
In this guide, we detail the three major components of OT visibility: asset visibility, threat visibility, and vulnerability management, and discuss how they are fundamental to improving your OT security posture. You’ll learn:
- Why each component is crucial for end-to-end OT visibility
- How to integrate these components to fuel effective and more efficient incident response
- How to partner with a vendor who can provide the OT cybersecurity expertise you need to get started, and most importantly walk along the journey with you.
