What is the difference between Cybersecurity and OT Cybersecurity?

  • OT Cybersecurity protection manages data controls with physical concerns to a greater degree than its IT Cybersecurity counterpart is expected to accomplish. This is because our critical infrastructure mandates that devices be monitored, that motors or valves be controlled, or that the process continue to protect personnel, the surrounding community and the facility should a cyberattack be experienced.  Not doing so can have dire circumstances. Placing safety at the forefront of its protection, OT Cybersecurity mandates that the traditional CIA Triad be inverted to place Accessibility first.
