Foxborough, MA — August 24, 2022 — Industrial Defender, a leader in operational technology (OT)cybersecurity innovation, today released the results from their inaugural 2022 State of OT Cybersecurity Research. The research survey was completed by 101 OT/ICS security professionals across 10 industries between October 2021 and May 2022. The findings show organizations are focused on solving specific gaps and overlaps across OT security, while trying to better integrate with big picture IT security strategies and goals.
“Our research indicates that the rapid evolution of both cybersecurity threats and cyber-related compliance regulations, along with staffing shortages, is creating demand for security solutions and programs that can empower OT teams to defend their organization’s unique environments more efficiently,” said Jay Williams, CEO at Industrial Defender. “Today’s landscape requires a new commitment from IT and OT teams and senior leadership, to create formalized transformational programs that strategically address the technology and talent gaps that ultimately stand in the way of achieving end-to-end cyber resilience.”
