With the ever-changing landscape in how the global community is demanding products and services be delivered, businesses are constantly being forced to adapt and become more agile, accessible and faster to meet customer expectations.
With the explosion of the next industrial revolution, some organisations have been early adopters taking advantage of new opportunities to deliver better operational efficiencies through: mobility, automation, big data, IoT, and third party and/or remote support and management. Many are empowering themselves by collaborating, transforming and amalgamating, or as the term being coined converging IT and OT to reap these benefits.
When integrating innovative technologies, it’s crucial to understand any potential risks. Cybersecurity is one of those risks that can be mitigated. In the organisational sense, cybersecurity is as much about people, process and technology as is the safety and financial health of the company and its employees. As such, a detailed and clear understanding of the risks are of the utmost importance.
