Securing Privileged Identities in OT (Operational Technology) and Industrial Control Systems

In the last years we see that privileged accounts in Operational Technology (OT) environments (e.g. critical infrastructure) have an even higher importance and criticality than in the traditional IT. OT networks and the Internet of Things (IoT) implementations are taking shape and are being connected to enterprise networks and to the internet. This brings many business advantages but also opens these once isolated technologies to advance threats. Securing these privileged account and their privileged sessions are a critical security practice for enterprises and critical infrastructure operators.

Key takeaways:

  • The role of privileged   identities have in OT and ICS environments
  • Main reasons for the different views on privileged identities in the IT and OT cultures
  • How the threat to exploitation of privileged accounts increased in the last years
  • Best practices for securing the connectivity between the IT and the OT   worlds
