The Great Divide in Cybersecurity

Dark web criminals are finding new ways to exploit backdoor access to private information.

Cybersecurity has traditionally been the concern of information technology (IT) professionals, but as hackers have become more sophisticated, operational technologies (OT) have become more vulnerable. As part of the Industrial Cybersecurity Pulse Expert Interview SeriesBryan Bennett discusses how the IT/OT divide is becoming blurred when it comes to access to sensitive data. He also addresses how “smart” building managers can protect their facilities:
