7 Questions SRM Leaders Aren't Asking OT Security Providers During Technology Selection

Published By: Tenable     Published Date: Mar 08, 2018
Which questions have you overlooked and why do the answers matter? According to Gartner, “OT SRM (security and risk management) leaders must ask the right questions during the technology procurement process to achieve long-term success in their security investments.” Further, Gartner states, “Translating IT security practices and copying IT security technology will not result in a secure operational technology (OT) environment.” By reading “7 Questions SRM Leaders Aren't Asking OT Security Providers,” you’ll learn which questions to ask, why they matter, and be armed with follow-up guidance to make smarter decisions.

A New Application Development Approach for Today's Speed of Business

Published By: FICO     Published Date: Jun 07, 2016
As IT departments’ lists of backlogged application development projects keep growing, so does the speed of new development requests from line-of-business personnel. For many IT departments, the speed of business — the speed of requests for additional developments — can’t be met under current practices. This inability to keep pace with critical development requests, supporting timely strategy modifications, seriously impacts an enterprise’s profitability. The solution FICO advocates — one that accounts for budget constraints, legacy operational realities and quality assurance — is to empower line-of-business personnel as Citizen Developers, giving them the right set of technology assets to quickly, safely and cost effectively participate in application development.

Assuring Digital Trust

Published By: Infosys     Published Date: Sep 05, 2019
In today's hyperconnected and digitized world, cybersecurity has become an important strategic imperative owing to the sophistication of cybercrime. Digital businesses require complex and distributed interactions among people, applications and data - on premise, off-premise, on mobile devices and in the cloud. The result is an increase in the attack surfaces that are hard to protect and defend. As the perimeter continues to diminish, visibility into the environment gets tougher. Operational Technology (OT) and the Internet of Things (IoT) massively expand the scope of security strategy and operations. When a massively distributed fleet of autonomous devices that can make decisions is combined, directly affecting the physical state of people and things, there is a considerable risk to manage. This issue is not limited to the chief information security officer (CISO) but needs the involvement and sponsorship of the leadership and the board.

Bridging the IoT Perception Gap 3rd party white paper 

Published By: SAS     Published Date: Jun 06, 2018
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly emerging as a core transformational technology of the digital era. The ability to gather data from sensors embedded throughout an enterprise can drive insights and operational efficiencies from the supply chain to the customer. But IoT and Industrial IoT (IIoT) implementations require high degrees of IT/OT convergence - collaboration and integration between information technology and operational technology groups - to succeed. These two groups, however, often have different goals, performance metrics, and perspectives on both the collaboration and the outcome. This SAS/HPE-sponsored paper helps readers get a better understanding of the relationship, either real or perceived, between these two groups. Futurum Research surveyed the state of the relationship between IT and OT teams as it pertains to the design, implementation, and creation of value through IoT technologies.

Campaign Landing Page

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Jan 05, 2015
The four pillars of computing — cloud, mobility, social, and analytics — are driving new levels of network innovation in datacenter networks. These forces are now buffeting the datacenter along with virtualization and the Internet of Things (IoT), resulting in sweeping changes in traffic patterns that expose the limitations of traditional networks and their operational models. To become a resource rather than a bottleneck to overall datacenter performance, the network must deliver not just exceptional performance and scalability but also unprecedented automation and orchestration that can yield agility, flexibility, and service velocity. This Technology Spotlight examines these key trends and discusses the role that Cisco's Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) plays in addressing these ongoing challenges for enterprise IT and network managers.

Contain Costs and Increase Operational Efficiency

Published By: Red Hat     Published Date: Sep 25, 2014
As a strategic partner in your business, you face increasing demands from your line-of-business leaders for new functionality and advanced capabilities, which you must deliver with a constrained IT budget. What could you do to meet these expectations and add value to the business if you could contain costs, increase operational efficiency, and do more with less? You need to overcome several challenges. The cost of software licensing management is rising as a result of maintaining proprietary platforms or legacy technology, making it difficult to modernize your datacenter and migrate to more cost-effective solutions. You’re likely burdened by regulatory compliance mandates, which create enforcement, reporting, and auditing expenses. And, like 67% of IT organizations, your budget is probably shrinking. Red Hat can help. Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® gives you the high-value subscription model, built-in governance processes, and simplified migration path you need to aggressively lower your

What measures have respondents implemented that they believe will prevent breaches? 2. What measures not necessarily implemented do respondents consider preventive? 3. What barriers have stopped respondents from doing what they should be doing?
