Attacks and Disasters Happen Across all Verticals, and They Often Cross IT, OT, and Physical Infrastructure. So How Does it Make Sense to Have a Security Strategy that Only Protects IT?

Below are a few examples of attacks and disasters that happened across IT, Operational Technology (OT), and Physical Assets across many different verticals. Most of these are recent, but one of them was 30-years ago and most people still remember it.

Electrical Substation

The attack began just before 1 am on April 16 last year, when someone slipped into an underground vault not far from a busy freeway and cut telephone cables not far from San Jose, CA.
