Overcoming the Security Risks of IT and OT ConvergenceOPSWAT's Ivan Issac on Protecting Systems, Using the SOC to Beef Up OT Security
As IT and OT systems converge with the adoption of Industry 4.0, the security risk to OT systems and IoT devices is high. To secure the enterprise, organizations need network segmentation tools to scan for malicious content across the OT environment, says Ivan Issac, country general manager for India and the SAARC region at OPSWAT.
"We recommend using unidirectional security gateway solutions along with a multi-level protection mechanism - a Purdue model that helps in the network segmentation process of scanning the removable media files that are clean from malicious data," Issac advised.
In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at ISMG's Bengaluru Cybersecurity Summit,Issac also discusses:
- Protecting legacy systems from attackers;
- A multi-level protection approach to OT/IT threats;
- Integration of OT and threat monitoring in the security operations center.
Isaac is the regional sales manager - India and SAARC, OPSWAT. He has more than 25 years of experience leading sales, pre-sales, project management and service delivery teams. Prior to joining OWASPT, he was the regional sales manager at Spirent Communications.
