Extensive material has been published to advise operational leaders on cybersecurity issues and concerns. What is lacking, however, is a holistic view of the situation, as research suggests that technology alone cannot adequately manage cybersecurity risk(1).
This whitepaper draws upon the insights of multiple Industrial Control System (ICS) cybersecurity specialists from Honeywell, working in the industry for over 15 years. In addition, it taps into Honeywell’s extensive experience working with executive management across global organizations, to provide related commentary and perspective. By combining these typically distinct views, an operations leader can gain broader context within which to make informed decisions on actions and next steps to improve cybersecurity in operational technology (OT) settings. For recommendations or data points sourced outside of these Honeywell industry veterans and stakeholders, footnotes are included.
