Risk is high in OT environments: nine out of 10 have had at least one breach in the past year, with half reporting three to 10 or more breaches.

Breach damages have been reported that affect productivity, revenue, brand trust, intellectual property, and physical safety.

This study identifies factors that must be addressed to reduce risk, such as the fact that 60 per cent of OT organizations have experienced a malware intrusion in the past year, and 77 per cent have only partial centralized visibility on the cybersecurity of their OT environments.

OT plant operations leaders indicate they are active and influential in evaluating cybersecurity solutions. They seek solutions that support their top goals of maximizing productivity while minimizing cost.
