Operational Technologies and Mission Critical Cyber Security

For thousands of leading companies around the globe, the IOTSA provides a sharing and networking platform to develop a knowledge base and source of materials to help inform as well as provide practical thought leadership, resources and insights to help improve the security resilience of critical infrastructures. Formed by a group of senior OT security professionals, who identified a general lack of appropriate security policies, standards or frameworks across the OT industry, the IOTSA, as one of its objectives, is dedicated to establishing a baseline for improved operational security practices that can be adopted across the OT industry as a whole.
