Global commitments to realising net zero are driving a rethink on what represents ‘business value’ – what could this look like for organisations?
Operational Technology (OT) is now a prime target for cyberattacks with more than 80% of events starting with an IT system compromise, according to 2023 research by Rockwell Automation. This creates a problem for OT-dependent businesses, whether it’s manufacturing, utilities or food production, because IT and OT teams have historically existed in different worlds, culturally as well as technically, creating an uneasy divide that now needs to be bridged.
With digital transformation the best route to optimisation, it’s imperative that industrial organisations build in security to protect OT in an integrated world.

Organisations committed to science-based net zero targets need to minimise the impact of their digital network infrastructure as demands for data and AI grow.
For a long time, the phrase “security through obscurity” has been a kind of comfort blanket, intended to reassure anyone whose job involves protecting critical systems from risk. But that mindset needs to change that much is clear from the presentations at the recent Secure-OT23 conference, hosted by BT,.
For cloud-centric organisations, optimising the costs of compute, storage and traffic across the network and cloud platforms is becoming increasingly important.
