CyberX, the IIoT and industrial control system (ICS) security company, today announced that it has been invited to share its insights on the state of Operational Technology (OT) cybersecurity at AGC Partners’ 2019 Information Security & Broader Technology Growth Conference.
The session will address a rapidly growing imperative for industrial and critical infrastructure organizations. On one hand, digital transformation and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are unlocking new levels of productivity, helping organizations improve safety, increase output, and maximize revenue. At the same time, digitalization is driving deployment of billions of IIoT devices and increased connectivity between IT and OT networks, increasing the attack surface and risk of costly downtime and dangerous cyber-physical safety incidents.
CyberX was recently recognized by Gartner in a report titled “Competitive Landscape: Operational Technology Security” 1. In the report, Gartner predicts that OT security spending will grow at a CAGR of 45.7 percent through 2022, with the highest annual growth percentage occurring in 2019 and 2020.
