OT Cyber

In today’s industrial world, operational technology (OT) and connected devices have streamlined operations and enhanced productivity. Real-time data exchange has enabled predictive maintenance, optimized processes, and informed decision-making, fostering better performance.

Unfortunately, this connectedness exposes critical infrastructure to cyber threats that target essential control systems and industrial networks. Fortunately, robust OT cybersecurity measures can ensure resilience against cyber threats; mitigating risk of disruption, protecting sensitive data, and upholding the trust of stakeholders. That’s where the OT Cyber team at True North Solutions comes in.

Operational technology cyber risk assessment

Operational technology is at the heart of the industrial control systems (ICS) and the critical infrastructure that is fundamental to our daily lives. Securing these systems against a cyber attack is vital to ensure safe and reliable operations.

The OT Cyber Risk Assessment is a simple, scalable method to help clients identify the maturity of management, operational and technical controls, agree on a target level of maturity for your organization and understand how to resolve any gaps. This repeatable process allows for benchmarking and future progress to be demonstrated to senior management and board-levelsponsors and the outputs of the assessment can be used to streamlinefuture risk assessment work.

A common Maturity Scale is used across all our assessments to compare against both repeat performances and benchmarks, and can help identify the ongoing impact of any changes.
