Santa Thangavel does an excellent job of relating how security can be compromised in an industrial environment. Often security breaches are not intentional by the one who allows access but they are always intentional by the outsiders trying to get in. Santa breaks down the delineation between OT and IT. He highlights how cybersecurity impacts OT more directly as the need in the industrial floor is centered around availability and time impacts manufacturing at great lengths. For those that aren't familiar with the CIA Triad Santa unpacks this including Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability. He emphasizes the need for manufacturing to begin focusing on a more secure journey and in this episode gives great insight on steps to take to get started.
