Demystifying Zero Trust in OT

Going from Implied Trust to Zero Trust

With the convergence of IT and OT opening new frontiers for efficiency and growth, the landscape of operational technology (OT) is evolving rapidly. However, this integration introduces cybersecurity challenges, exposing OT environments to evolving cyber threats.

This whitepaper explores the critical shift from traditional implied trust to a proactive zero-trust cybersecurity model. 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll uncover in this whitepaper:

  • The historical reliance on “implied trust” in Operational Technology (OT) environments, particularly in Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS).
  • The concept of “zero trust” in cybersecurity as a paradigm shift that involves moving from an “implied trusted” attitude to an “assumed breached” state, where nothing is trusted without verification.
  • The problems that a zero-trust implementation can solve
  • Challenges in Implementing Zero Trust in OT Environments and addressing them.
