Security Professionals Need To Win The Trust Of OT Engineers

  • To be successful, the first thing security people need to do is sit down with OT engineers and learn from them. Gaining that trust is essential.
  • Tools that provide visibility into the OT network help security gain a clearer idea of what they must protect, but they help OT engineers as well, and this will help win their trust.

“Typically, IT and OT folks are not aligned, because they come from different environments.”

Unlike typical OT security managers who often have control engineering backgrounds, Everardo Trujillo began his career in IT systems and worked as an IT security architect. This has given him an edge in considering cyber risks and vulnerabilities in the OT environment.
