OT Security Is More Than Just CybersecuritySchneider Electric's Andre Shori on Who Owns OT Security Risk
While IT-OT convergence is accelerating, awareness and maturity of OT technologies still have a long road ahead. In this transition, organizations need to ensure the safety and health of workers is always the top priority for OT security, said Andre Shori, CISO, APAC with Schneider Electric.
"There is still a long way to go in terms of being where I would feel that we are at a comfortable maturity or something equivalent to where we are with IT security today," Shori said. "A lot of legislation, for example, is focused on critical infrastructure, but even what constitutes critical infrastructure can change from country to country. We need a little bit of normalization and consensus in terms of what constitutes critical infrastructure."
In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Shori discussed:
- Who owns OT security;
- Schneider Electric's OT security road map for the next two years;
- What is next with IT-OT convergence.
Shori is responsible for leading, animating and implementing IT and OT cybersecurity programs in the region for Schneider Electric. He has more than 30 years of cybersecurity experience.
