Presenting OT Security Risk to the Board

How to effectively communicate OT/ICS cybersecurity risk to your Board of Directors.

The corporate risks associated with ICS and OT cybersecurity differ significantly from those related to the security of IT networks – and they need to be understood by your Board of Directors. These include costly production outages leading to financial losses, catastrophic safety failures and environmental damage leading to potential liability issues, and theft of corporate IP leading to loss of competitive advantage.

A key goal of the Board of most enterprises is to maintain an appropriate balance between protecting the security of the enterprise, its ability to function, and control financial outlays from losses.

But how do ICS security leaders translate cybersecurity priorities into the language that their Board members speak – the language of business goals and outcomes?
