To help organizations better secure their OT environments, the World Economic Forum collaborated with Claroty and other partners from a range of critical infrastructure sectors including electricity, manufacturing, and oil and gas to develop a set of guiding principles for ensuring industrial cyber resilience.
The growing digitization and connectedness of industrial environments is opening up business opportunities and enhancing operational efficiency, but it also introduces inherent risk that must be accounted for and mitigated.
These five principles, listed below, can help organizations safeguard, maintain and monitor their industrial OT environment as well as ensure business continuity:
Principle 1: Perform comprehensive risk management of the OT environment.
Principle 2: Ensure OT engineers and operators of installations have responsibility for OT cybersecurity.
Principle 3: Align with top organizational leadership, strategic planning teams and third parties to make security-by-design a reality.
Principle 4: Make cybersecurity standards and best practices contractually enforceable on partners and vendors to build a cybersecure OT environment.
Principle 5: Run joint tabletop exercises to ensure preparedness in case of an actual incident.
