IoT and OT technologies, solutions and capabilities are quickly becoming part of the fabric of organisations’ information infrastructure. They represent an evolving threat vector that is rapidly creating new classes and types of threats and vulnerabilities that greatly expand the surface of concern for organisations using them. These threats and vulnerabilities need to be analyzed and integrated into an organization’s information security and risk management strategies and planning to effectively meet information security and risk requirements, goals and objectives.
Security Operations Center (SOC) teams face several challenges in monitoring IoT/OT networks, including:
In an article published this week by ISACA, John P. Pironti, president of IP Architects, presents five key points that every enterprise should consider when developing an integrated security strategy for IoT and OT.
Therefore, having a hosted monitoring solution allows you to have access to all the information you need to ensure the availability and reliability of your infrastructure and network. Bringing IoT data into a larger monitoring concept that also includes OT and IT is not only beneficial but necessary.
