Many of today’s threats are a result of vulnerabilities arising from the interconnection of cybersecurity and physical security systems. Bad actors take advantage of the blurred lines between efforts to protect IT networks and physical security systems that utilize operational technology (OT) such as access control and video surveillance systems. OT systems also include intrusion alarms, and residential systems like video doorbells, HVAC and home automation systems, which often have connections to IT networks. In some companies, information security management may not be aware of the interconnectivity of IT and OT systems.
