The focus on security has evolved from just IT networks into OT and IoT environments as well, as attackers alter their direction and seek newer attack vectors. In accordance with Gartner research on OT Security Best Practices in 2018, “The converging of IT and OT systems, combined with increased use of IoT in industrial environments, is challenging many security practices in defining the best security architecture that aligns to transforming and modernizing environments”.
