Achieving OT Security Maturity

Michelle Balderson of OTORIO on How OT Security Is Now Perceived as a Business Risk
Michelle Balderson, global security executive and OT security evangelist, OTORIO

OT security is being discussed in the board room as attackers adopt the use of AI and automation. Many organizations never fully implement the frameworks that define OT security maturity, and we need holistic solutions and platform approaches that address the operator's needs.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Michelle Balderson explains why defenders need to take a systematic approach to defense in the face of attackers taking a systematic approach. She discusses:

  • How to quantify OT risk to justify ROI to the board;
  • The shift in thinking required to focus on solutions, not products;
  • Aligning risk to business objectives by involving all the people, systems and processes.

Balderson is a thought leader in addressing risk in operational environments. Her previous roles include director of sales, Canada, OT and critical infrastructure, SME at Fortinet; territory account manager at SonicWall; and senior account manager at DLink.
