The Fortinet 2023 State of Operational Technology and Cybersecurity Report is our fifth annual study based on data from an in-depth worldwide survey of 570 OT professionals conducted by a respected third-party research company.
Protecting OT systems is now more critical than ever as more organizations connect their OT environments to the internet. Although IT/OT convergence has many benefits, it is being hampered and handicapped by advanced and destructive cyberthreats. The spillover of these attacks is increasingly targeted at OT environments. For these reasons, this year’s survey data indicates that OT cybersecurity is now more central and crucial in an organization’s risk portfolio than ever.
