Securing the Grid: Opportunities and Risks in Operational Technology

By Robert J. Butler

“Securing the Grid: Opportunities and Risks in Operational Technology” examines threats and risks associated with the convergence of Information Technology and Operational Technology and the growing need for securing converged infrastructure. The author recommends that "NIST, as the premiere standards body, and DHS, as the government’s lead implementation arm, need to build on current standards to develop a holistic strategy for securing digital infrastructure and data centers that focuses on expanded information sharing and learning between information technology and operational technology groups."
