Aligning your operational technology strategy with your digital strategy
The presentation will explain what an operational technology (OT) strategy looks like. This will include the components associated with asset programs, technology programs and cyber security programs.
The perspectives of an operational technology strategy for various roles across the business – including the cyber security team and executive leader – are explored.
The presentation will take the audience through a discussion of answers to a series of questions designed to build up the understanding of:
an operational technology strategy
an organisation's digital strategy
the foundations and transformations necessary for their alignment (with particular attention to OT cyber security foundations)
A typical question of senior management when they are presented with an OT question is, "How does this align with our Digital Strategy?" This presentation will paint a clear picture of an OT strategy that is aligned with an organisation's digital strategy, including the crucial part that OT cyber security will play in supporting innovation and new business models.
