Smart Buildings: A Case Study of IT/OT Convergence in the Age of IoT
Information Technology and Operational Technology were, for a long time, regarded as two distinct areas of an organization. Nowadays, these two domains are converging with the rise of connected embedded devices in the Internet of Things (IoT) and industrial control systems. Consequently, IT security teams are increasingly responsible not only for protecting the information of business but also its cyber-physical systems. Recent research conducted by Forescout Technologies uses a smart building as a case study of a network where legacy OT assets, IT systems and IoT devices share the same network.
Join us to learn about:
- The cybersecurity landscape and impacts of IoT in the networks of modern organizations, focusing on the interplay between modern IoT and legacy OT devices.
- The cyber risks to which these networks are exposed by evaluating their security posture.
- How to implement a network monitoring solution that improves network resilience via device visibility and control.
