When business environments have isolated ICS environments and business networks, this can increase risk of exposure to control systems. This added risk, among other reasons such as enhanced knowledge sharing amongst the business, a more connected migration network, and stronger communication between systems, forces coordination between IT and OT. This session will discuss how the Largest Australian Owned Brewer, Coopers Brewery, has integrated their IT and OT, and highlight how lack of coordinate can hinder the development of a business.
- Understanding the positive opportunities and development converging IT and OT can have on a business.
- Highlighting the risks that not converging IT and OT can have on a business, particularly in today’s technical and digitized world.
- Examining what strategies can be utilized to facilitate a smooth integration of IT and OT.
