Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) are different in a lot of ways, from their design to their maintenance workflows and more. When IT and OT merge, these differences create all new challenges for cybersecurity.
IT has standards for protecting device security, data security, and people’s privacy, but these standards do not make sense for many connected OT devices. In IT, for example, cybersecurity vulnerabilities are the absolute top priority. In OT, operations are the top priority, while network security is a close second. Ensuring the building is still functioning as expected is critical to maintain physical safety and security, before addressing a network vulnerability.
Last year, the National Institute for Science and Technology (NIST) released the report “Considerations for Managing Internet of Things (IoT) Cybersecurity and Privacy Risks,” exploring these exact differences and cybersecurity threats. The report is an in-depth analysis of current threats and how IoT devices can or cannot meet those threats head-on.
This is a huge opportunity to pull in your IT counterpart and collaborate on cybersecurity standards that make sense for your connected OT devices.
Join us for a one-hour webinar digging into the report, where we’ll summarize what IT and OT teams on the ground should know about their systems and security. We’ll dig into top risks identified in the report, challenges for securing the Internet of Things, and NIST’s recommendations.

Commercial buildings and campuses worldwide are running on BACnet. Reports show its rate of adoption increasing year over year.
Four years ago, Penn State was at 90,000 packets per hour of broadcast traffic. At least a dozen different buildings were randomly dropping offline.
Visual BACnet is an advanced visualization tool for Building Automation System (BAS) Service Providers. The powerful analytics engine quickly identifies common problems and anomalous behavior in the BACnet infrastructure.
Back by popular demand, we are troubleshooting your pcap files live! Have a troublesome network and a pcap file, but don’t know where to start with Visual BACnet?
Have a troublesome network and a pcap file, but don’t know where to start with Visual BACnet? Our team of BACnet buffs field a lot questions on the best ways to filter, drill down, and pinpoint problems in Visual BACnet.
Designing and bidding an IoT and Integrated Platform isn’t what it used to be. Traditional controls contractors used to bid Division 23, and focused only on the building’s HVAC and control systems.
