Description

The expanding connectivity of operational technologies (OT) increases the vulnerability of facilities to cyber attacks. Many of these technologies were not designed for a "smart" environment and are thus unsecure. Furthermore, these devices often continue to be overlooked when considering overall building security, which can lead to significant losses. On August 10, 2021, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine's Federal Facilities Council convened a virtual workshop to discuss OT security within facilities. Workshop panelists and participants explored existing vulnerabilities, new legislation and guidance, the convergence of cyber and physical security, and strategies to mitigate risk. This publication summarizes the presentation and discussion of the workshop.
