The fusion of information, operational and consumer technologies is transforming the security landscape for businesses, individual consumers and society at large.
The convergence of these technologies is generating sweeping business opportunities as well as increasing product and system vulnerability to cyberattacks.
Operational technologies (OT)—such as systems that control manufacturing processes—are becoming more interconnected with other technology domains, increasing the risk of disruption and the integrity of products and services.
Consumer technologies (CT)—end-user products and services that include home automation and sensor-enabled automobiles—are becoming more connected with other technologies, introducing new, potentially dangerous privacy and safety concerns.
