Digital Transformation (DX) is the strategic realignment associated with the application of digital technologies towards business, industrial models and processes.
Trustworthiness is the degree to which an industrial system can be relied on to do what it should, and not to do things that it shouldn’t. During this webinar we will explore why Trustworthiness (especially security) is such an important concept, considering that historically OT (Operational Technology) systems were designed to be resilient, reliable and very safe, whilst IT (Information Technology) systems have been built to be secure, private and reasonably reliable.
With the advent of IoT and Digital Transformation, the requirements of IT and OT become intertwined. Different industrial environments have their own unique challenges, and as they are digitally transformed, they become more connected, and potentially more vulnerable. The trustworthiness of industrial environments need to be handled differently than the traditional IT environment and newly IT/OT-converged systems must meet trustworthiness considerations associated with each.
Bottom line: Failure to address the trustworthiness issues of IoT systems (especially security) can put the organization’s DX strategy at risk, resulting in serious negative consequences such as missed market opportunities and wasted critical investments in DX initiatives.
