Key Challenges Addressed

 

As organisations modernise their operations through new technologies and processes, their security capabilities can struggle to keep pace. In particular, sectors that rely on operational technology (OT) systems often find it difficult to maintain an accurate inventory of all the assets in their environments due to IT/OT convergence.

The introduction of IoT, IIoT, and process automation and digitalisation creates even further difficulties in ensuring end-to-end visibility across applications.  

Building the right capabilities to secure modern business operations requires the right capabilities in your SOC. However, the cyber skills gap has created a shortage of suitably skilled security analysts with relevant sector experience (particularly in securing OT), which can limit SOC capabilities.

This can impact business continuity, with organisations lacking the expertise to balance the availability of these new systems with confidentiality and integrity. A lack of sector experience in the SOC can also create undue complications in achieving compliance with relevant regulations – such as the NCSC CAF.
