    Applied Risk released a report revealing that companies are struggling to develop their OT (operational technology) security defenses at a pace comparable to the speed of cyber-attackers. The OT landscape is becoming more and more complex due to a convergence between information technology, operational technology, and cybersecurity. The report can be found in the sources link below [1].

    The report takes into account issues that surround people, processes, and technologies that underlie current conditions in OT security. The report notes the sector has been shaped by numerous factors including lower-than-ideal staff levels, supply chain issues, nation-state attacks, rising number of sophisticated cyber-attacks, adoption of risk-based and OT-specific standards, and the failure to adopt enabling technologies. We suggest all companies to stay up to date on guidance from the industry's best cybersecurity professionals.
